Preparing presentations and posters for the scientific program
Presentations and posters for the scientific program must be prepared according to these guidelines.
The destination Davos Klosters is located in the heart of Graubunden and comprises the municipalities of Davos and Klosters. The Congress Centre Davos is located in the middle of Davos, between Davos Dorf and Davos Platz. The Main Entrance and the parking lots can be reached from the Talstrasse. To reach the entrances “Park”, “Promenade” and “Promenade Nord” please walk from the parking lots through the gangway or directly from the Promenade.
Train and Bus to Davos
You have the option of travelling to Davos via either shuttle bus or train. Both will cost 50 CHF one way. The booking of the shuttle bus will be available through the meeting registration home page. In order for train tickets to be equal in cost to the shuttle bus, we are providing promotional codes to reduce ticket costs. These can also be ‘purchased’ free of charge on the meeting registration home page. You will receive an email with the promotional code which can be redeemed at the ticket checkout of SBB. You will need to purchase tickets for each direction of travel separately (one ticket for Zürich Airport to Davos and a separate ticket for Davos returning to the Airport) in order to receive the discount on both journeys. Booking of tickets will become available in the first week of August.
Please find your prefered accomodation here at the congress rate. There is a wide selection of hotels available. A credit card is required to confirm the booking. Free cancellation until 14 days prior to arrival.
The official working language at the EAAP Annual Meeting is English. No translation will be provided.
Passport and visa
Entry formalities for Switzerland vary according to the country of origin. Nationals of the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA), as well as third-country nationals holding a residence permit of a Schengen State, do not need a visa to enter Switzerland. All non-EU citizens are asked to contact their local embassies for specifi c requirements. All foreign citizens entering Switzerland must have either a valid passport or a national ID card.
Official invitation and certification
An official letter will be sent upon request to assist in meeting administrative requirements. However, this invitation implies no obligation, financial or otherwise, by the EAAP Organizing Committee. A Certificate of Attendance will be available at the registration desk for all delegates.
Liability and insurance
The Organizing Committee cannot accept liability for personal accidents or loss or damage to private property of participants and companions. Participants are advised to acquire their own personal travel and health insurance for their trip.
Health and Emergency
In case of emergency, landline or mobile phone users should call 144 (Ambulance) or 117 (Police) to be connected to the relevant department.
Currency and Money exchange
The currency in Switzerland is the Swiss Franc. Most banks open at 09.00 and close around 17.00 Monday through Friday. They are generally closed for lunch between 12.00 and 14.00. Post offices are open between 09.00 and 17.00. Please, note that there will be no currency exchange facilities at the congress venue. All major credit cards are widely accepted. ATMs are available at walking distance.
The summer time zone in Switzerland is GMT + 2 hours.
The Alpine climate can be very variable. Temperatures between 0°C and about 25°C are possible in Davos in August/September. Normally the temperature will be about 20°C during the day. An umbrella might be useful as the August has the highest average rainfall.
Electricity is supplied at 220/230 volts, 50 Hz. Some hotels provide 110 volt AC sockets for electric razors only. Switzerland has its own plug standard Type J (three 4mm round pins). Therefore you will need an adapter, which might be provided in most of the hotels.
Public transport in Davos
Most distances in Davos are walkable. There is also a well-developed bus network (www.vbd.ch).
An EAAP 2021 App will be available to all registered delegates before the conference. It will contain comprehensive information about the conference, venue program and abstracts.
