COVID-19 countermeasures

Since several major CS conferences, such as CHI and CVPR, have become COVID super spreader events (see, e.g.,,, we are taking decisive action to not follow this trend with ECML PKDD:

  • We provide each participant with a mask and gel.
  • We ask every attendee to perform an antigen test in case of suspicion.
  • If you test positively or have any Covid symptoms, we ask that you do not attend the conference and do not otherwise socialize with conference attendees in person.
  • We have large facilities available and strongly encourage attendees to spread out and use the entire space. We’re working with our venue to have as many events outside as possible.
