RADECS 2021 - Safety Information

(Update 2021-09-09)

Dear RADCES ON-SITE participant!

We are very glad that you decided to be among us in Vienna next week despite the difficult situation!
To ensure a safe conference for us all, we will have to comply with some safety regulations.

Every morning we will check the so-called 3-G status (vaccinated, recovered, tested) of all participants before they enter the conference area.
After the check your name badge will be marked with a new daily code every day.
Please note: It’s mandatory to have your marked badge with you during the whole conference and the social events.

FFP2 masks:
For your own safety we kindly ask you to wear a FFP2 mask, except at the seat in the conference room and the restaurant or during the coffee breaks while eating and drinking.
Please don’t forget the FFP2 in your daily life planning – FFP2 will be mandatory in all busses (social events), in any kind of public transportation and shops.
Of course FFP2 masks will be available for you.

Contact tracing:
In the conference room you will find a form on the seats every morning. Please fill in your name and seat number. Leave the form at your seat, we will collect them during the first coffee break.

We are all happy to see each other „live“, but let us try to keep a safety distance and to avoid direct contact (e. g. handshakes).

Hygiene rules:
Please wash your hands regularly and use the hand sanitisers the hotel offers you.

Accompanying persons:
We feel honoured to welcome you at our social events.
Of course we have to check your so-called 3-G status (vaccinated, recovered, tested) too.
Please come to the registration desk during the day, after the check you will receive the necessary daily code on your name badge.

If you have any questions concerning our safety regulations, please get in contact with us!

We are looking forward to meeting you in Vienna!
