Hi Gina,
I understand that you are the point of contact for the O'Reilly 
conference code of conduct. [1]

The Open Source Geospatial (OSGeo) Conference Committee is currently 
discussing setting up a code of conduct for conferences [2]. I like the 
O'Reilly wording, and have suggested OSGeo adopt something similar.

However, one thing I find lacking is a clear definition of "sexualized 
images". Does O'Reilly have guidelines for assessing whether an image is 

Would it be appropriate for a presenter to include an image from a main 
stream media commercial? Likewise, could such images be displayed by 
vendors at conferences? I'd expect so. However, large proportions of 
main stream commercials make use of young, "sexy" models.

I'm interested to hear your thoughts. Feel free to forward this email to 
appropriate people.
