Code of Conduct

X.Org Conference/Event Anti-Harassment Policy


The X.Org Foundation is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form.

Harassment includes, but is not limited to, offensive verbal comments, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. We expect participants to follow these rules at all conference venues and conference-related social events.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers and/or the X.Org Foundation Board may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a conference organizer or member of the X.Org Board immediately.

This policy applies to all events organized by the X.Org Foundation, or for which the X.Org Foundation is the primary sponsor. Events for which the X.Org Foundation is a co-sponsor must have a published harassment policy of their own.
