Announcement on Registration Deadline

Since many people encountered payment problems before the deadline, the local organizing committee decided to extend the payment deadline to June 23th, 2021. Problems associated with payment will be handled as soon as possible.

To better arrange the congress and adapt to the hybrid mode, the LOC has decided to set June 20th, 2021 (Beijing Time) to be the last day for registration and payment. From then on, no registration and payment could be made, and no participation mode shall be changed. Attending code will be gradually issued afterwards for the participants whose payment has been received. Please get prepared in advance. Thank you very much for cooperation.

Announcement on Visa Application and Quarantine Policy

As the congress is approaching, some participants have started to plan the trip to Shanghai. We have received some questions about visa application and quarantine. Here is the most updated information that might be useful to the preparation. 

As for the visa application, it depends on the Chinese Embassy/Consulate in your country whether issuing a visa to individual to enter China. Unfortunately, LOC does not have any special channels to interfere or speed up visa applications. 

Based on the current situation of the pandemic, the most updated prevention and control measure of Shanghai is as follows: Starting from May 17th, 2021, all international travelers entering Shanghai need to undertake a 14-day quarantine upon arrival plus a 7-day health monitoring within the community. Due to the change of the pandemic, the prevention and control measure might be changed accordingly. If there are any updates, we will announcement it on the official website as soon as possible. 

The cost of accommodation during the quarantine and health monitoring will be borne by the participants, no matter if received solidarity fund or not.
