Access to CERN

Gaining access to the CERN site for the duration of the conference.

The CERN visitor ticket (similar to a printed boarding pass) will be generated approximately one week before the conference start date. The organisers will grant access to participants who indicated on their registration form that they are not a CERN User or staff member.

The organisers will request a ticket for each participant who needs one, you will then receive an email with a form asking for personal information needed to fulfill CERN's Security Policy. Once you have completed and sent the form back, you will receive another email redirecting you to a confirmation page where you can get the access ticket and the registration code.

The access ticket should be printed ready to bring to the CERN entrance in order to gain access. Please note that the ticket is A4 size. After printing, it should be folded in 4 in order to get a single or double-sided A6 that will then fit into a transparent plastic badge holder distributed at the CERN entrance.

On the day of the event, participants must be able to show their visitor cards, along with a valid identity document, to the security guard on duty at Reception in Building 33. A badge holder is distributed on arrival, so that the visitor card can be worn where it can be easily seen. Any participant who forgets to bring a visitor card, or if the Main Reception is closed, may request that a replacement be printed by entering the reservation code at the terminal provided for this purpose at Reception or inside the phone booth located in front of the Building 55 presenting it to the security guard at Entrance B.
