Agenda:
Take a look at the Program.

Online participation:
Please tick the appropriate box in our online registration form. A few days before the event you will receive an email with instructions on how to register.

Restricted on-site access to the event:
Currently, we are planning to hold the symposium as a hybrid event that can be attended both on-site and online. Following the COVID-19 regulation of the federal state of Lower Saxony, we plan to restrict access to our venue to vaccinated or recovered individuals. Prior registration on our online platform will be mandatory. This will allow us to admit more participants and create a much more relaxed atmosphere without having to wear face masks and maintain minimum distances during the event. Incidentally, participation will also be possible online via a video conferencing system.

Information for our international participants: Entry into Germany under the COVID-19 pandemic ordinance
The Ordinance on the Coronavirus Entry Ordinance (dated 28 September 2021) of the Federal Republic of Germany states that you must register online before travelling if you have been in a so-called “risk area” in the ten days prior to entry. You will be exempt from quarantine if you present a certificate of recovery from COVID-19 or a vaccination with a vaccine approved in the European Union. Without one of these certificates, a negative PCR test is required and you must be quarantined for ten days, with the possibility of shortening the quarantine to five days upon presentation of another negative PCR test.

Please note that regulations for travel and access to events may change at short notice during the COVID 19 pandemic.

Discounts for hotels:
Some hotels near the venue offer discounts for participants of the symposium. These offers expire on 15 October, so you should book your room in advance. See the information sheet attached to this mail.
