The organizers of pleb.fi want these events to be a safe, respectful, and productive environment for everyone. This is an intelligent and well-intended community, and we as the workshop committee are not inclined to tell people what to do. To that end, this code of conduct spells out the behavior we support and don’t support at our events and by attending you agree to abide by it.
The core of our approach is this:
We want to respect the privacy of all participants, so no photographs or recordings are permitted without the consent of the photographed individual.
We don’t condone harassment, undue interruption, or offensive behavior at our workshop venues or anywhere. It’s counter to our community values and counterproductive in general. More importantly, it’s counter to our values as human beings.
Examples of harassment include offensive comments, verbal threats or demands, sexualized images in public spaces, intimidation, stalking, disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact or attention.
As an academic and engineering focused event, we do not allow public promotional activities.
Besides the public presentations and the streaming sessions, all conversations are held under the Chatham House Rule: participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed. Information disclosed during a meeting may be reported by those present, but the source of that information may not be explicitly or implicitly identified.
We’re voicing our strong, unequivocal support of appropriate behavior by all participants at our events. We invite you to help us make pleb.fi a place that is welcoming and respectful to all participants, regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, national origin, ethnicity, or religion. So that everyone can focus on the event itself, and the collaboration and community richness that happens when we get together in person, we will not tolerate harassment of workshop participants in any form—in person or online.
We expect all participants—attendees, presenters, sponsors, and volunteers—to follow the Code of Conduct during the workshop. This includes dialogue conducted during the workshop, at workshop-related social events, at off-site locations, in side conversations, as well as in related online communities, chat and social media.
Participants who are asked by a participant, organizer, or other attendee to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Workshop participants violating this Code of Conduct may be expelled from the workshop and online fora without a refund, and/or banned from future pleb.fi events, at the discretion of the organizing committee.
Please bring any concerns to the immediate attention of the event staff. We thank our participants for your help in keeping our events welcoming, respectful, and friendly to all participants.
Thanks to the folks at O’Reilly and Scaling Bitcoin, from whom this Code of Conduct is heavily drawn.
