SAFETY MEASURES

The Organizing Secretariat is constantly monitoring the pandemic situation and is strongly committed to deliver the safest in-presence event.
As most countries of Europe, Sweden removed  most severe covid-19 infection control measures on 9 February 2022. To date, vaccination still stands as the main recommendation for individuals.

Travellers from EEA countries (European Economic Area) can enter Sweden either with a negative test result, or a certificate of recovery or vaccination.
Travellers from outside the EU/EEA, including UK, must be covered by at least one of the exemptions from the entry ban, and also be able to present a negative COVID-19 test, or be exempt from the test requirement.

Vaccination certificate
At the registration area the Organizing Secretariat will check the vaccination certificate of each delegate. Once checked the QR code/vaccination status, a sticker will be applied on the badge in order to avoid further checks during the whole conference.
