Transforming the Future

Entry Requirements For ISC High Performance 2022 Related To COVID-19 Safety

Last Updated: May 25, 2022

Given the decrease in the number of new Covid-19 infections in the city of Hamburg, the city's health authorities have decided to further ease health guidelines. As organizers of ISC High Performance 2022, we will be adopting these measures, accompanied by our own safety standards.

As of Sunday, May 29, we will no longer impose any admission restrictions. Anyone with a valid registration can attend the event. The registration confirmation can be presented in digital form or as a printout. An official identification document (ID card, passport, driver's license) is required to verify the registration.

However, we strongly recommend that attendees abide by the ISC 2022 Safety Standards. We also encourage attendees to take further precautions such as regular self testing, as well as actively using Covid apps, such as the official Corona-Warn-App to minimize the risk of catching and passing on Covid to others.

Update November 9, 2021

Last Updated: Nov 9, 2021

As of today, the government of Hamburg allows for events to take place under the condition that all participants can provide proof of vaccination or proof of immunity as a result of recovery from a COVID-19 infection. As event organizers, we will comply with this guidance.

However, we would also like to emphasize that we are six months away from ISC 2022, and recommendations and regulations can change in the interim.

To make it more convenient for our attendees, we will update our travel web page at regular intervals, to actively share the latest recommendations from the government of Hamburg and other authorities, especially during the early-bird registration phase in March, to make it easier for everyone to plan their travel.

For those unable to attend in person this year, we will offer some of the planned programs online.
