Code of Conduct

NEXT is dedicated to providing a positive and harassment-free event experience for everyone, regardless of age, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, ethnicity, race, religion, nationality, or level of experience. We do not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form, nor do we tolerate any behavior that would reasonably lead to another event participant being made to feel unsafe, insecure, or frightened for their physical or emotional well-being. All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds.

  • Using welcoming and inclusive language
  • Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
  • Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
  • Focusing on what is best for everyone at the event
  • Showing empathy towards other participants

Unacceptable Behavior & Prohibitions

  • The use of sexualized language or imagery, or inappropriate physical contact, sexual attention, or advances
  • Trolling, insulting or derogatory comments, personal or political attacks, or sustained disruption of talks or other events
  • Deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, or harassing photography or recording
  • Harassment of any kind, even in a joking or ironic manner
