Practical info




  • For all participants coming from a European country, we invite you to carefully read the information on this page (you can also download the app): EU provides information on the various measures in place, including on quarantine and testing requirements for travellers, as well as the EU Digital COVID certificate. You can easily see what is needed travelling from one country to another one.

  • All persons travelling from a green zone classified EU country must provide the Declaration for International Travel.
  • In addition, please make sure you can deliver to the authorities (or at the airport company) one of the following document (EU Digital COVID Certificate):
        - vaccination proof (at least 7 days prior to arrival in France)
        - proof of a negative COVID-19 test result before travelling;
        - recovery certificate

More detailed information (list of green classified countries, link to download the Certificate and detailed info about the validity of EU Digital COVID Certificate) here:

  • For all participants coming from countries outside the European zone in the amber list (UK included): it is necessary to be fully vaccinated in order to enter France. A negative PCR test is not valid as a health pass.


  • We follow closely the official recommendations from the French government (including the travel information for Europe):
    - The flow of circulation is regulated – entrance and exit are separated
    Masks are mandatory indoors, also when people are seated;
    - Regular use of hydro-alcoholic gel is also recommended;
    - A Health Pass or EU Digital COVID Certificate will be required to access the event (conference venue, restaurants). It consists of either a complete vaccination schedule, a proof of a negative test less than 72 hours old, or a Covid-19 recovery certificate.
    - Cartoon compiled a list of drugstores that offer PCR tests. Some drugstores do tests only by appointment, we strongly advise you to make your appointments in advance, as they are already very busy. Consider that there is often a delay between the test and the creation of the QR code.
  • Sanitary measures will also be applied during the lunches and a valid health pass will be required. Masks are not required during the meals. 
  • For the Welcome Dinner it will be necessary to present a valid health pass to the restaurant hosting.
