Our Responsibilities

Event organizers are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.

Event organizers have the right and responsibility to ban temporarily or permanently any participant for behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.


This Code of Conduct applies within all LAS event spaces, and it also applies when an individual is representing the LAS event or community in public spaces.

All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The LAS team is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident.

LAS participants who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other members of the event’s leadership.
