According to current regulations a mask has to be worn onboard the public transport vehicles. This also applies to rail, long-distance buses.
We also would like to ask all participants to wear masks during all indoor activities (plenaries, student sessions, workshops, etc.), keep physical distance in the lecture room (use every second seat) and use hand sanitisers often.
The organisers minimise pandemic threat with the above regulations, and - in addition - workshops and social events will be moved (if possible) to open air, accommodation is planned to be limited to max two person/room.
