The organisers of the Melbourne rOpenSci Unconference are committed to providing a welcoming and harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Unconf participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event at the discretion of the conference organizers.
This code of conduct applies to all participants, including organisers and applies to all modes of interaction, both in-person and online, including Unconf GitHub project repos and rOpenSci GitHub, the rOpenSci discussion forum, Slack channels and Twitter.
rOpenSci unconf participants agree to:
Please speak with Nick Tierney, Miles McBain, or Di Cook if you have any concerns. You may also reach out to venue staff who present all through the event if you are unable to reach Nick, Miles, or Di.
If any attendee engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any lawful action we deem appropriate, including but not limited to warning the offender or asking the offender to leave the conference. (If you feel you have been unfairly accused of violating this code of conduct, you should contact the conference team with a concise description of your grievance.)
We welcome your feedback on this and every other aspect of rOpenSci’s events, and we thank you for working with us to make it a safe, enjoyable, and friendly experience for everyone who participates.
