The Quick Version

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.

 

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

 

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

 

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.

 

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

 

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified as they'll be wearing branded t-shirts.

 

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

 

We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.

Organisers

Erlang Solutions Ltd. organises two Erlang Factory conferences each year - in the San Francisco Bay Area and in London. The Erlang Factory is a way of bringing together the growing community that are using Erlang in many and varied ways, in order to showcase the language and its application to today's growing distributed environments. In 2009 the company took over the organization of the Erlang User Conference in Stockholm – the oldest Erlang conference in the world, run annually since 1994 (except 1996 when everybody was busy developing the first version of OTP). The Erlang Factory website is also being used to aggregate slides and videos from other Erlang conferences which are not organised by Erlang Solutions Ltd. In this way we are enabling knowledge flow within the Erlang community and the promotion of the Erlang language outside of it.
