This code of conduct is a regulatory document most of you do not need. Most of you have no problems decently navigating situations where you meet and interact with other people. Most of you will behave in a perfectly acceptable manner. You are decent human beings. You don’t need this document.
Need more guidance? Read on:
For the GreaTest Quality Convention, the Philosopher Immanuel Kant’s Categorical Imperative offers suitable instructions on how to act:
Act only according to that maxim whereby you can at the same time will that it should become a universal law
Or, if that sounds too wordy for you, here is a simpler general heuristic:
Always act in a manner your parents/mentor/spiritual leader would approve of
If those still do not sufficiently guide you, keep on reading:
This convention is about discussions, cheerings, critiques and debates on professional, quality, and testing-related topics. Any topic that falls into those categories is fair game.
Harassing, unwanted attention, and/or making any person feel uncomfortable for who they are is strictly off-limits. We also dwell in the 21st Century, not in the 50s of the past one. Adjust the types of jokes and comments you make accordingly.
Should you be the target, or an observer of unacceptable behaviour, contact any of the staff. We will listen to you, and we will take care of the situation.
If we ask you to stop your behaviour, we expect you to comply immediately. Should you persist, we are happy to escort you out, and call you a taxi or the police, whichever seems more appropriate. Needless to say that in such a case, you will not receive any refund or compensation.
We will take pictures at the event, which we will use to promote our following events. By attending our convention, you agree to this code of conduct.
Enjoy the event!
