While at Linux Foundation events or related ancilliary or social events, any participants, including speakers, attendees, volunteers, sponsors, exhibitors, booth staff and anyone else, should not engage in harassment in any form. 

All event participants are expected to behave according to professional standards and in accordance with both The Linux Foundation Code of Conduct as well as their employer's policies on appropriate workplace behavior.
