Code of conduct

SXC2020 is dedicated to providing an enjoyable, respectful and harassment-free event experience for everyone attending regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, or religion. 

Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. We do not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form and we expect all participants to conduct themselves in a professional and appropriate manner.
