Code of Conduct

We highly appreciate your participation in mnNOG meetings, whether in person or online. Our primary aim is to ensure that every attendee feels safe and included.

mnNOG is committed to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of their gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, nationality, age, or religion.

We do not tolerate any form of harassment of conference participants. Conference attendees who violate these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.

Harassment includes, but is not limited to:

- Deliberate intimidation or stalking

- Harassing photography or recording

- Sustained disruption of talks or other events

- Inappropriate physical contact

- Unwelcome sexual attention

- Verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion.

- Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.

- Sexual images in public spaces

If you are being harassed, or you observe someone else being harassed, or if you have any other concerns, please contact a member of the mnNOG team immediately.

The mnNOG team is always ready to help participants by contacting the venue security or local law enforcement to provide escorts or any other assistance required by those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of mnNOG.

Alcohol is often part of social events. However, every participant is expected to remain in control of their alcohol consumption (or any other substance) and behave appropriately at all times.

The mnNOG code of conduct applies to the conference program and official events. The behavior of the participants at mnNOG reflects on every individual attendee, their employer, and our industry at large. We expect every participant to follow these rules at all mnNOG venues and related social events, including all online/digital spaces.

If you have any questions, don't understand some of the policies, or would like to discuss this policy further, please contact any member of the mnNOG team, who would be happy to arrange for someone to discuss it with you.
