SCHEDULE: While every effort will be made to maintain the schedule exactly as represented, we reserve the right to make changes and substitutions as needed.

PHOTOGRAPHY: DATAVERSITY reserves the right to use photographs of any event attendee for future promotions. Videotaping and/or photography are not allowed without prior written approval of DATAVERSITY.

SOLICITATION: Solicitation at the event by anyone other than sponsors is strictly prohibited.

CODE OF CONDUCT: Our goal for every conference is to create a safe and productive environment for everyone. To that end, this code of conduct spells out the behavior we support and don't support at conferences.

The core of our approach is this:

We don't condone harassment or offensive behavior, at our conference venues or anywhere. It's counter to our company values. More importantly, it's counter to our values as human beings.

We're voicing our strong, unequivocal support of appropriate behavior by all participants at all DATAVERSITY events. We invite you to help us make each DATAVERSITY conference a place that is welcoming and respectful to all participants, regardless of race, gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, national origin, ethnicity, political affiliation, or religion. So that everyone can focus on the conference itself, and the great networking and community richness that happens when we get together in person, we will not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form—in person or online.

Examples of harassment include offensive comments, verbal threats or demands, sexualized images in public spaces, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention. Harassment also includes slights and negative messages, both unintended and intentional, based solely on appearance (sometimes called micro-aggressions).

We expect all participants—attendees, speakers, sponsors, and volunteers—to follow the Code of Conduct during the conference. This includes conference-related social events at off-site locations, and in related online communities and social media. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Conference participants violating this Code of Conduct may be expelled from the conference without a refund, and/or banned from future DATAVERSITY events, at the discretion of DATAVERSITY.

Please bring any concerns to the immediate attention of the event staff, or contact Tony Shaw at tony@dataversity.net. We thank our participants for your help in keeping the event welcoming, respectful, and friendly to all.

If you have questions or need assistance, please call us at 1-310-337-2616 x1 or email us at registration@dataversity.net.
