We are doing our best to organize this Meeting face-to-face in Zurich, which, according to current regulations of ETH (July 2021) should be possible under following conditions:

  • Wearing a mask inside all ETH buildings, also in the audience during presentations,
  • Staying behind a transparent shield when presenting without a mask,
  • Taking only the labelled seats in the auditorium,
  • Keeping a distance of 1.5m from each other in the lobby,
  • Staying at home if you are particularly vulnerable, have COVID-19-similar symptoms, or have been in contact with an infected person during the last 14 days,
  • Eating only on the external terrace during coffee breaks, lunch and dinner,
  • Being cooperative with the Organizers regarding all safety measures.

We will provide a possibility to all participants who cannot join the meeting in person for COVID-19-related reasons to present their talk or poster on-line. Since the pandemic situation is not stable and the ETH regulations may change, we may be forced to cancel the physical meeting and move it to an online webinar at a relatively short notice. For that reason, please book your hotels with a late cancellation option only. For detailed information about ETH conference policy, see:
