Congress Kit

Congress Badge

Each congress participant (delegate, application days delegate, accompanying person, member of the organization) will receive a nominative Congress Badge at the Welcome Desk. Delegate Badges provide access to all Congress venues during the whole Congress week. Application Days Badges provide access to le Congress during the two last days only (13 and 14 July).

This Badge provides also access to those Congress Items selected during online registration, such as pre-congress workshops, technical visits, ceremonies and receptions, lunches and accommodation at university campus. All purchased or selected items are listed on the badge. Only one badge will be issued so please ensure that you have yours with you every day. Having the badge with you is also important for security reasons.

Certificate of participation

The Congress Badge also serves as attendance certificate. No certificate will be provided during the Congress week but may be asked for, and sent, after the Congress.

The characteristics are 500Mbps data transfer rate and 1000 admissible simultaneous connections. Delegates are kindly asked to avoid video streaming as well as Skype video. They are also invited to disconnect when not necessary to free the connection for other attendees.
