The safety and well-being of all conference participants are our priority. Recent developments and Swiss health regulations support an in-person ISPDC 2022 event without restrictions. On April 1 2022, the Swiss Federal Council has decided to revoke all COVID-19 measures against the pandemic. No pandemic-related entry restrictions are in force at the present time.

Entering Switzerland

There are currently no entry restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. No proof of vaccination, recovery or testing is required for entry into Switzerland. Additionally, no compulsory mask in public transportations or inside buildings are necessary. However, it is recommended to wear face masks for your own safety and surgical masks will be available at the conference venue. You will find further information here.
