IBC2022 VACCINATION POLICY and SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
Current as of 12 January, 2022
The International Biometric Society is looking forward to welcoming the global community to its next International Biometric Conference. And when you arrive, we want you to have the confidence to engage with other attendees in a safe and comfortable setting, so that our focus will be on the latest findings and information available to those in the profession.
Local guidelines issued by the country of Latvia, the city of Riga and/or the host hotel will take precedent and must be followed by all registrants attending the 2022 IBC (such guidelines may include, for example, the submission of forms to the Latvian government prior to travel and completion of country testing or proof of vaccination requirements).
While the IBC planning group will aim to provide useful information related to local government guidelines, registrants are ultimately responsible for planning their travel appropriately so that they are prepared to follow all local and regional guidelines.
For everyone's health and well-being, attendees are reminded not to attend IBC activities or socialize with IBC attendees if they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
Finally, you must agree that the Society will not be held liable for any COVID-19-related health problems or complications, or any associated medical and/or travel costs. You agree that you are attending the conference at your own risk. Questions or concerns regarding this policy may be directed to the International Business Office (IBO) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that this is the policy of the Society, and it may change at any time due to the changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to registering, you must agree that you understand and will abide by this policy (now and as it may be amended) while attending the IBC. If the policy is amended, all confirmed registrants will be notified.
