Code of Conduct


Electronic Design Innovation Conference & Exhibition - China and USA
EDI CON brings together RF, microwave, EMC/EMI, and high-speed digital design engineers and system integrators for networking, training, and learning opportunities. Attendees come to EDI CON to find solutions, products, and design ideas that they can put into immediate practice for today's communication, defense, consumer electronics, aerospace, and medical industries.

We value the participation of each member of the electronic design community and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.  Accordingly, all attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees throughout the conference and at all conference events.  To make clear what is expected, all staff, attendees, speakers, exhibitors, organizers and volunteers at any EDI CON event are required to conform to the following Code of Conduct.  Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event.
