DAGA 2021 - 47. Jahrestagung für Akustik, 15. - 18. August 2021

Hygiene measures at DAGA 2021

The hygiene concept has now been approved by the authorities, and DAGA 2021 will take place as planned.
Since July 1, far-reaching relaxations have come into force, which will have a significantly positive effect not only on events but also on the rest of your congress stay in the city of Vienna.
The following precautions are taken during the time of the conference:

1. Admission only for tested, recovered and vaccinated persons
Please present your ID card upon entry, as well as valid proof that you have been vaccinated OR tested negative OR have recovered.
Participants must keep this proof available for the duration of their stay.

2. Data sheet for covid tracing
When signing in on site for DAGA 2021, you will be asked to enter your contact details on a data sheet (paper). This information will be kept for 28 days in accordance with data protection regulations and will then be completely destroyed. The collection of this data will be used solely for contact tracing by the competent health authority in the event of an infection.

3. mandatory use of masks
Please note: The obligation to wear a mask in accordance with the hygiene concept applies specifically to DAGA 2021 from the moment of entering the Congress Center, in order to guarantee participants a higher level of protection against infection at DAGA 2021, even beyond the current regulations. Speakers are excluded from this rule during the time of their presentation.
The reception in the town hall, on the other hand, is considered an outdoor event and masks are not required there.

4. strong spatial separation in the foyers and in the conference halls, outdoor area open, one-way system
To ensure distances, every second seat should remain empty wherever possible. The spatial capacities are generously dimensioned for this purpose.
The routing is planned in a one-way system. Please follow the floor markings.
The outdoor area can be used for mask-free breaks.

5. cleaning and disinfection
Disinfectant will be provided at the conference office and media reception, at each room entrance, each catering station and in the toilet facilities. Contact surfaces, door handles, railings and toilets will be cleaned every hour.

Messe Wien offers optimal conditions for the above measures thanks to spacious and technically modern equipped premises as well as the surrounding infrastructure.
