What should I know regarding COVID-19-related restrictions if I plan to attend on-site?

The recent developments of the pandemic in Denmark are positive, and Denmark is therefore in the process of phasing out the related restrictions. This means that we feel optimistic about a hybrid conference with both physical and virtual attendees.

We continue to monitor the developments of the pandemic and the related restrictions/regulations. We will do from our side our best to ensure a safe conference experience for all. For example, there is a test facility at the venue, where anyone who wishes can take a rapid test and get the result within 15 minutes.
