Dear Delegates, Friends and Colleagues, 

We continuously evaluate the situation in Belgium and on the other continents, keeping a close eye on decisions taken by the health authorities. As all of you may know, most countries have their own measurements and proceedings in place, and are constantly reassessing the possible risks. This makes it impossible for us to keep all of you updated on the rules and regulations that people from foreign countries must apply to, or are applicable for travelling. 

The Belgian Federal government has decided to reinforce current guidelines with additional social distancing measures aimed at countering the rapid spread of Covid-19 for the same purpose. For the most up-to-date local information on the situation in Belgium, please visit: On this page all information is provided and updated regularly by the government. 

For the most up-to-date information on travelling and arriving in Belgium, please have a look here:

The well-being of our speakers, sponsors and participants is of course our top priority.
We hope you are and stay safe during the upcoming weeks and look forward on meeting you in Ghent!
