Code of Conduct

I have read and agree to the CMTC code of conduct.

Event code of conduct

In order to provide all participants with the opportunity to benefit from the CMTC Conference, the Conference Sponsors (NHSAA and NHSTE) are committed to providing a friendly, safe, supportive and harassment-free environment for all conference attendees and participants, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, or other group identity.
This code of conduct outlines CMTC’s expectations for all conference attendees and participants, including all members, speakers, vendors, media representatives, commentators, exhibitors, sponsors, and volunteers. Cooperation is expected from everyone and organizers will actively enforce this code throughout this event. Violations are taken seriously.

Expected behavior

CMTC expects conference participants to communicate professionally and constructively, whether in person or virtually, handling dissent or disagreement with courtesy, dignity and an open mind, being respectful when providing feedback, and being open to alternate points of view. Likewise, when sharing information about the organization or any attendees or participants via public communication channels, CMTC expects participants to share responsibly and clearly distinguish individual opinion from fact.

Unacceptable behavior

CMTC does not tolerate harassment of conference attendees or participants in any form. Harassment includes offensive verbal or written comments and negative behavior, either in real or virtual space, including those which are related to or are based on gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, or other group identity. Harassment also includes display of sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention.

Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, social events, and social media. Sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, media representatives, commentators, and activity organizers may not use sexualized language, images, activities, or other material or otherwise create a sexualized environment.

Consequences of unacceptable behavior

If an attendee or participant, in either real or virtual space, engages in inappropriate, harassing, abusive, or destructive behavior or language, the conference organizers will determine and carry out the appropriate course of action, including warning the offender, expulsion from the conference with no refund, and/or banning the offender from future NHSAA and NHSTE sponsored events and activities.

All participants are expected to observe these rules and behaviors in all conference venues, including online venues and conference social events. Conference participants seek to learn, network, and enjoy themselves in the process, free from any type of harassment. Please participate responsibly and with respect for the rights of others.

Share the grid

CMTC invests tremendously in the onsite internet and power services and our goal is to provide a positive experience for everyone at CMTC 2017. You can help by being mindful of your bandwidth usage and avoiding large downloads or streaming while onsite.

Video and studio recording

Video and studio recording — including streaming — of sessions for commercial use is strictly prohibited. Recordings for noncommercial use are allowed with the specific permission of the presenter in writing. Any recording should respect the presenter's rights and not be disruptive.

Video and photo consent

Registration and attendance at or participation in CMTC 2017 constitutes an agreement that allows CMTC to use and distribute the registrant, attendee and/or participant's image, name or voice in photographs, videos, websites, social media, and/or print and digital collateral.
