Rules for the participation of scientists from Russia and Belarussia

The EPS strongly condemns the invasion of the Ukraine by the Russian Federation (link to the EPS statement) and the ongoing war waged by the Russian Federation. Our thoughts are with the people and our colleagues in the Ukraine, who suffer from the devastating effects of this war. We sympathize with our Russian colleagues who refute the aggression by their government, and suffer in consequence from restrictions and suppression.

 

Taking into account the recent measurements taken by CERN council and in step with local regulations by Universität Hamburg and DESY, the EPS 2023 local organizing committee together with the EPS HEP board decided to suspend all participation of institutions located in the Russian Federation and in the Republic of Belarus in all scientific committees and activities related to the EPS 2023 conference. As a consequence, people employed by these institutes may participate in the conference only personally (without their affiliation) or with an IUPAP affiliation (subject to approval by IUPAP).
