Covid-19

We are optimistic that by May 2022 medical advances will have progressed and the infection rate of Sars-CoV-2 will be stable.

Nonetheless, the situation is being considered in the planning process. Among other actions we restrict the total number of attendees to 200. This limit allows you to attend the conference with adequate distance to other participants – if necessary. In case of rising concern other appropriate measures will be taken (e.g. providing COVID antigen tests).

However, if international travel regulations/government restrictions do not allow to hold the conference, Forum Aluminium will be postponed. The conference will not be held online. In case of postponement, all pre-paid registration fees will be refunded.
