In-Person Participation, Montevideo
In-person participation will be available for the sessions scheduled for 12 and 13 October at the LATU Events Center in the city of Montevideo. In-person participation will be limited and, given the travel restrictions adopted by the Uruguayan authorities in response to the global health emergency, will be mainly restricted to residents of Uruguay.
Currently, Uruguay's borders are closed except to Uruguayan nationals or residents, foreigners legally residing in Uruguay or whose residence permit is being processed, and foreigners who own homes in Uruguay. Exceptionally, nonresident foreigners who can duly justify the reason for their trip and provide the required documentation may also be authorized to enter the country. For more information on these exceptions, go to:
The sessions will be held at the LATU Auditorium (Av. Italia 6201 C.P: 11.500 Montevideo, Uruguay) from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm (local Uruguay time).
In compliance with the current health restrictions, seating will be limited, so we advise anyone interested in attending the venue to register in advance by selecting the “In-Person” option.
Participants attending the LATU Events Center must adhere to the health protocols in force and, along with a valid form of ID, will be required to show one of the following documents at the registration desk:
A vaccination certificate proving that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19
A certificate of negative PCR or antigen test for COVID-19 issued not more than 72 hours before attending the event
If a person attending the venue does not have a certificate proving they are fully vaccinated, they can schedule a drive-through COVID-19 test (Autotest) at the ATGen lab located within the LATU facilities.http://covid19.atgen.com.uy/agenda#
