RIPE Meeting Code of Conduct

For over a quarter of a century, the RIPE community’s strength comes from its breadth of experience, diversity of views, and an open, respectful exchange of ideas – values that we want all of our RIPE Meeting attendees to uphold.

Please treat each other with tolerance and respect. Free speech and an open exchange of ideas are encouraged and celebrated. Demeaning, intimidating or harming other attendees is wrong. We are especially sensitive to behaviour that offends based on gender, sexual orientation, religion, race or ethnic origin, or other perceived social, cultural, or personal differences.

If someone is being disrespectful to you, or if you see a situation in which others aren’t being respectful, please tell a RIPE NCC staff member. The RIPE NCC has specially trained staff ready to assist you. If you aren’t being respectful, know that you may be asked to leave the meeting without a refund, and other actions may be taken as deemed necessary.
