OryCon Policies

Covid-19 protective facial masks will be OPTIONAL in OryCon hosted spaces


OryCon 44 does not tolerate discrimination or harassment of any kind, including but not limited to physical assault, battery, deliberate intimidation, stalking, inappropriate language, inappropriate video, or unwelcome physical or electronic contact. This policy applies to any attendee’s interactions with fellow con-goers, program participants, volunteers and convention committee members, including panel discussions.

Be respectful of and courteous towards others. Attendees are expected to understand that one needs to ask before touching, using inappropriate video and/or inappropriate language, and that no means no. If someone says no or go away, an attendee’s business with that person is done.

Violation of this policy can result in action by the convention committee ranging from verbal or written warnings to having the violator immediately removed from the convention, and the decision of the event chair is final. Action by the convention in no way precludes the injured individual from pursuing whatever remedies, civil or criminal, they see fit.

After the event, OSFCI may take further action, including banning the violator from further events.

If you feel you are being harassed, please let a member of the Watch know. If necessary, please ask a staff member to find one of those people for you. You will be treated with respect and your concerns will be taken seriously. All names involved will be kept confidential to the extent possible, but any accused person has the right to know enough details to be able to defend himself or herself.

Procedures for Enforcement

  • The Orycon 44 chair shall be designated as having the power to remove individuals from the convention.
  • The Orycon 44 chair shall note any warnings given in the written security logs for the event.
  • The Orycon 44 chair is the final authority on any actions, including the removal of individuals from the convention, during the event. (The OSCFI Board is only involved with any further actions taken after the close of the event.)
