Covid-19 Health and Safety Measures


During the conference, all participants are required to provide a negative test, vaccination card or recovery certificate at admission and need to carry such documentation (tested, vaccinated, recovered) for the duration of the conference as this ensures access to all rooms on campus. Approved Covid-19 tests include (1) a rapid antigen test (not older than 24 hours) or (2) a PCR test (not older than 72 hours) from a recognized testing facility. Gargle and self-tests are not recognized.

There are several testing facilities in the city of Innsbruck. Nearby options include:

  • Kaufhaus Tyrol, Maria-Theresien-Straße 31 (2nd floor):
    Opening hours: Mon-Sat, 9am to 2pm and 2:30pm to 6pm
    Individuals without an Austrian health insurance card will have to pay EUR 25,- for an antigen test and EUR 75,- for a PCR test.



Participants’ Covid-19 documentation (tested, vaccinated, recovered) will be verified throughout the days of the conference at the beginning of every day at the Registration Desk. Signed COVID-19 instruction forms must also be handed in there. An individual form is required for each day that you are in attendance at the conference. To avoid long waiting times, participants are asked to bring signed forms and to come early. Additional copies of these forms will be available on site, particularly for participants from out of town.
