In line with the conference's values and commitment to diversity, a Diversity Officer has been appointed to act as a liaison for any conference Delegate who feels uncomfortable, threatened, harassed or excluded.  
Linux Australia aims to provide fun, welcoming and professional environments so that diverse groups of people - regardless of age, race, gender identity or expression, background, disability, appearance, sexuality, walk of life, or religion - can get together to learn from and be inspired by each other about all things Free and Open Source.
+
  
Linux Australia is committed to the ideals expressed in our Values Statement and ask all our members, speakers, volunteers, attendees and guests to adopt these principles. We are a diverse community. Sometimes this means we need to work harder to ensure we're creating an environment of trust and respect where all who come to participate feel comfortable and included.
+
Diversity Officer details will be published closer to the conference.  
  
We value your participation and appreciate your help in realising this goal.

In the meantime, email [mailto:contact@lcabythebay.org.au contact@lcabythebay.org.au] for any diversity-related issues.  
  
These ideals are embodied in the [http://linux.conf.au/register/code_of_conduct Code of Conduct].
 
  
If you feel threatened, uncomfortable, harrassed or believe a breach of the Code of Conduct has occurred, please make contact with an Organiser or the Conference [[Diversity Officer]].

== Dress code ==
 
 
The dress code for the conference is 'neat casual'. Jeans, t-shirts, shorts etc are predominant. Footwear must be worn at all times. Speakers and Delegates generally choose to wear 'business casual' or more formal attire for the [[Speakers' Dinner]], [[Penguin Dinner]] and [[Professional Delegates Networking Session (PDNS)]].
 
 
We request that for the comfort of yourself and others at the conference that high standards of hygiene are maintained at all times. The Australian summer can be very warm, and you may find that you perspire more than usual.
