Code of Conduct


Everyone joining Swiss Cyber Institute’s Events should feel welcome and safe. That’s why we’d like you to read our code of conduct, so you know what’s expected from all our attendees.

We open our doors to everyone, regardless of gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, or religion (or lack thereof).

Even though we know you are intelligent and well-intended people, we just want to make it very clear that harassment or bullying in any form has no place at our events.

Speaking your mind is appreciated and encouraged, but don’t forget to listen to each other too. At SCI Events you’re encouraged to debate, have discussions, and build upon each other’s insights, knowledge, and experience. But don’t make things personal – it’s not relevant to healthy discourse.

All forms of (online & on-site) harassment or (online & on-site) bullying are unacceptable at SCI Events or any of our side events, including:

  • Strong, vulgar, obscene, or otherwise harmful language;
  • Racially, ethnically or otherwise, objectionable language;
  • Harassing, intimidating, stalking, or threatening other participants, speakers, organizers, and partners;
  • Libellous, defamatory, or otherwise tortuous language;
  • Impersonation of another person;
  • Posting, distributing, transmitting, or promoting illegal content;
  • Invasion of another’s privacy;
  • Actions that are harmful to minors;
  • Posting, providing, transmitting, or otherwise making available any materials or information infringing on the rights of a third party;
  • Posting, providing, transmitting, or otherwise making available any junk mail or spam, and
  • Posting, uploading, emailing, or otherwise transmitting any material that contains any malicious computer code, or reverse engineering or hacking any materials on the Event website.

Participants that are asked to stop any bad behavior are expected to do so immediately. If a fair warning doesn’t help, violation of this code will lead to expulsion from the event without a refund. This goes for everyone at SCI Events, including participants, speakers, organizers, and partners.

If you ever feel that anyone is crossing any boundaries (towards yourself or others), please contact a member of our staff via email or phone number on the Events Website.

Thank you for making SCI Events a safe place for everyone – we hope you have a great time!
