At the moment, the presence in interior areas of the Faculty of Science remains subject to covering one’s airways with a respirator with at least 94% efficiency (i.e., class FFP2 or KN95) in combination either with a negative test result certificate, or with a proof of having suffered from covid-19 during the past 180 days, or with a certificate of vaccination against covid-19.

In case of vaccination certificates, one of the following rules applies:

Hybrid vs. virtual event
For those, who are already planning your travel to Prague for in-person par­tici­pa­tion. Although we remain slightly optimistic, please note that it has still to be decided, if the congress will be allowed to be hybrid, or will have to be virtual only. Due to regulations at the congress venue, final decision will be made during the next week (beginning 31 May). Once the possibility of physical participation at the congress venue will be approved, the LOC will inform registered participants immediately.
