What COVID-19 measures do you have in place for the events happening physically?
According to the measures given by the Federal Council and EPFL, the AMLD organising committee has decided on the following:
- September 28-29 and October 26 workshop days will happen physically on EPFL Campus.
- Workshop tickets for these dates are sold for a specific workshop, not simply for the day as previous years.
- If you have any COVID symptoms, please stay at home and contact us! We will refund your ticket.
- All attendees must present a COVID certificate upon arrival to the venue – this can be a proof of full vaccination or recovery, or negative PCR or rapid antigen test. Only official documents that have been issued by or recognized by the Federal Council will be authorized (self-tests are not accepted).

What happens if the rules change and the workshops aren't hosted on site anymore?

How do I connect to Socio?
Once your ticket is purchased, you'll be able to login to the Socio platform via this link. Please ensure that you use the same email address that you used when purchasing your ticket.
Can I pay by invoice or wire transfer?
Unfortunately the event only offers the possibility of paying by credit card as we use Stripe to handle the payments and it is directly linked to our ticketing system (Tito). Handling manual offers, invoicing, payment confirmation and generating tickets takes up large amounts of time and we do not have the resources to do this due to the scale of the event.
I need a proper invoice, what do I do?
Our ticketing system issues proper invoices and you can edit all the detail, even after you have bought the ticket through a link in the confirmation email.
Can I reassign a ticket?
Yes! You received emails for your original purchase that contain links that allow you to assign tickets to any person of your choosing.
I want to partner or sponsor, how?

Are the talks going to be published as videos?
