Code of conduct

Our goal is to be inclusive to the largest range of contributors and audiences, with the most varied and diverse backgrounds possible and to promote a diverse and positive community. As organisers, we will work hard to provide a friendly, safe, accessible and welcoming environment for all. We invite all those who participate in the conference, and the community surrounding it, to help us create safe and positive experiences for everyone.

If you need special accommodation during the conference presentations, performances or workshops, please send an email to Alexandra Cárdenas at in order to prepare it in advance.

As participants, please be mindful of the effect your words and actions may have on others and that your boundaries may not be the same as the boundaries of others. If you act or speak in a way that someone finds inappropriate, it’s inappropriate to that time, place and/or person. If somebody tells you that you are making them uncomfortable, please stop doing so.
