CODE OF CONDUCT
ALGOSS are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for attendees of all of our events.
ALGOSS conferences are for professional networking and collaboration within the open source community.
We encourage the open exchange of ideas and expression and create an environment that recognizes the inherent values of each person and each group of people.
During ALGOSS all attendees, including members, speakers, attendees, volunteers, sponsors, exhibitors, booth staff and anyone else, should not engage in harassment in any form.
This Code of Conduct may be revised at any time by ALGOSS and the terms are non-negotiable.
Your registration or participation in an ALGOSS event indicates your agreement to abide by this code of conduct and its terms.
All ALGOSS participants are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with professional standards, both with this Code of Conduct as well as with their respective employer’s policies governing appropriate behavior in the workplace and applicable laws.
Harassment will not be tolerated in any form, including but not limited to harassment based on sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, size, race, age, religion or any other status protected by applicable law.

Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take whatever action they deem appropriate under the circumstances, ranging from issuing a warning to the offending individual to ejection from the conference.
ALGOSS reserves the right to exclude any participant engaging in harassing behavior from further participation in ALGOSS.
If any participant (or person wishing to participate in an ALGOSS event), through social media or other online postings or other form of electronic communication, engages in conduct that violates this policy, whether whether before, during or after the ALGOSS Event, ALGOSS may take appropriate corrective action, which could include imposing a temporary or permanent ban on an individual’s participation in future ALGOSS Events.
