Code of Conduct


The organizers of North Star AI are dedicated to providing a space and program for developers interested in Machine Learning, Data Science and related technologies to have a memorable day of learning, sharing and good times. We value the participation of every member of our community and want all who attend to have an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

We ask that the participants make North Star AI great by contributing positively back to the ML and DS communities; generously sharing what they know; mentoring others when the opportunity arises; and extending respect, courtesy, and compassion to other attendees, especially when opinions differ.

Our Code of Conduct is created in the spirit of promoting this spirit. Every attendee, speaker, exhibitor, organizer, and volunteer at any event or activity connected with the North Star AI conference is expected to abide by this Code of Conduct:

"North Star AI provides 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. All communication will remain appropriate for a professional audience that includes people of many different backgrounds. We do not permit these behaviors at any time during the conference, in any conference venue: using sexual language or imagery; insulting, maligning, or harassing other attendees; or telling sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes."

Conference staff will enforce this Code throughout the event and may ask anyone violating this Code to leave the conference.

Thank you for helping make North Star AI a positive, inclusive, and appropriate experience for all who attend.


If you feel this Code of Conduct has been violated, or have other concerns, please contact a member of the North Star AI conference crew. (Crew members will be wearing North Star AI Shirts that say North Star AI on them). You can also contact at any time:

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 and want this to be a great experience for all!
