This page gives you an overview on the on site measures to counter the spread of Covid and other viruses during this years Meeting C++ conference. Please understand that this is a moving target, so some things may change in laws. As an organizer I try to counter this by being a bit more strict as what currently is the law.
Meeting C++ can create only a limited rule set that protects attendees while attending. The Hotel is likely going to stick with what the law requires, and hence this is what applies to some parts of the conference, where we mix with other hotel guests. This applies to the general hotel, the hallways and some other facilities. The rooms where we are hosting the onsite conference program in are the ones to which this rule set applies most. Meeting C++ assumes that this might all be what the current law could be in November, or what organisations like the RKI suggest for inside events in Germany during winter.
I'd like folks to have an option to reserve their spot where they sit. As the andels provides blocks of papers and pencils/pens, simply build your own name signs and put the on your place. This way you can ensure that you always sit with some folks in the same neighborhood when attending the main track. If you see a name sign, this means this spot is taken. We'll provide more chairs then attendees in the main hall, so you'll have some flexibility to move around. Have in mind that the front row has priority for Staff and (Keynote) speakers.
Masks are mandatory to wear (on your face, covering mouth and nose) in the rooms where the onsite conference program is hosted (Rooms Saphir, Jade, Opal). On the shared conference venue e.g. Hallways, Toilets, Restaurant and in the hotel Meeting C++ advises you to wear a mask. Meeting C++ will offer complimentary masks, but advises you to bring your own masks that you feel comfortable with, either medical or FFP2/KN95.
Meeting C++ had to assume that you are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 for most of this years conference season, as this could have been a potential measure to check for in this fall. Meeting C++ will not check for this, as it is not required by law. Still, getting the updated vaccine is a good idea for your conference visit.
By attending Meeting C++ onsite, you confirm that you are not having Covid or flu like symptoms and have not tested positive for COVID-19 in the last week. Folks that do display symptoms will be politely asked to follow the conference via the online part.
