About The Event

Clojure/north is Canada's first Clojure conference. It is a non-profit event from the Clojure community for the community. Our goal is to share knowledge and be an accessible, enjoyable event for newcomers and veterans to Clojure.

Where

Hilton Toronto

145 Richmond Street West, Toronto, ON M5H 2L2

When

Friday-Saturday
19-20th April, 2019

Event Schedule

In order to be an accessible event for newcomers as well as those familiar with Clojure there are two streams -- one which focuses on advanced topics using the language, and one that's less technical and either more introductory or focused on how Clojure is used in real-world situations. Of course you're not limited to either and can swap between the two as often as you like during the event.

The Quick version

We are dedicated to provide a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.

If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified as they'll be wearing branded volunteer buttons.

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.
