Workshop Information

Accessibility Statement

Our venue partner Microsoft is committed to providing an inclusive, accessible experience for all guests, partners, attendees and speakers of the event “Global Diversity CfP Day 2020 - Munich”.
Your participation – what to expect.

• Used language depends on audience. If there is not one common language for all participants and the speaker(s), English will be the fallback.
• We’re offering live captions through Presentation Translator. Expect this to be a non-flawless solution, as it’s based on AI and Machine Learning. But it’s constantly improving with usage.
• The event is fully catered with food. We declare vegan and vegetarian options.
• Drinks (coffee, tea, soft drinks, water) will be available at all times.
• Registered or open Wi-Fi will be available throughout the time of your stay.
• The event space (including stages, restrooms and retreat areas) is accessible for wheelchair use. You will mostly find flat floor layout, partially ramp use may be required. The atrium stage in Munich headquarters is not accessible for wheelchair use.
• Anyone with mobility, hearing or vision issues can reserve a front-row seat without justification.
• Restrooms are multi-stall and gender neutral for the time of the event. Wheelchair accessible gender-neutral restrooms are available.
• Service animals are welcome.
• We have a Media Policy in place with lanyards indicating the level of comfort attendees have with being photographed or recorded.
• Speakers are advised to avoid using epilepsy-inducing videos and animations.

If you’re in need of any assistance or have questions, do not hesitate to contact the organising team. We’d love to have you with us.
