Participant Support

The conference organisers aim to support all participants in the best way possible to create an inclusive environment that fosters scientific exchange.

Financial support is available, particularly to those from underrepresented parts of the community. Thanks to our sponsors we are able to provide various levels of support depending on your needs. To apply please fill in this form after you have registered.

The venue is fully accessible to delegates with reduced mobility. Sessions will be live streamed and recordings will be made available. Plenary sessions will have a live captioning service.

Participants who need to bring in-person support, e.g. a sign language interpreter, are welcome to do so and we will register their support person free of charge, which includes access to all social events. Please indicate this on the registration form.

On-site child care will be facilitated and up to a certain capacity we will be able to provide this free of charge. The child care will be in a dedicated room in the same building as the conference and will be provided by professional child carers. In order to be able to offer this service, we need to know in advance, so please make sure to indicate this in the appropriate box on the registration form. The room will also provide a quite place for breast feeding, although this will be welcome anywhere in the venue.

Participants requiring further support or with suggestions for how we can make the event more inclusive should get in touch with the organisers.

The conference will of course follow all local health and safety requirements. Details of the measures in place and steps to be taken by delegates will be communicated nearer the start of the conference.

If you require a visa invitation letter, please register via the form in the "Registration" menu and email lp-2021@cern.ch with the request, detailing what information should appear on the letter.
