About Us

The NetDev Society has been established for the purpose of advancing the Linux networking user and kernel open source software by, among other things, providing a forum for collaboration through conferences and other activities. It is operated by volunteer netdev community members. It is not a trade association. Our goal is to serve the netdev community.

Anti-Harassment Policy

The NetDev Society is dedicated to providing 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 and we expect participants to comply with our anti-harrassment policy at all conference venues and conference-related social events.

Harassment includes sexual languages and images in venue spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention, and offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. Conference participants violating this policy may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.

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.
