ON-SITE FULLY BOOKED & SANITARY UPDATE – ALERT Workshop & School 2021

Dear ALERT community,

As you may know, the registration for the ALERT Workshop and School 2021 is open! The preliminary program of the Workshop and School is available here.

It was decided to propose you two alternatives for your registration to the workshop and doctoral school: either you can come and participate in Aussois, or you can attend those remotely.

UNFORTUNATELY, the number of participants that can come to Aussois is limited to 160, and has been reached. The only registration possible from now on is therefore remotely.

ABOUT THE SANITARY CONDITIONS

As a reminder, the restrictions for entering France will depend on your country of departure and your vaccination status (more information here and here).

Your stay (and access) at the CNRS “Centre Paul Langevin” where the event takes place is conditional on the presentation of a HEALTH PASS upon your arrival. This means that you must have at least one of the following documents:

  • A vaccination certificate (provided you have a complete vaccination schedule);
  • A negative test (RT-PCR or antigen of less than 48 hours). For unvaccinated travelers from Cyprus, Spain, Greece, Malta, the Netherlands and Portugal, a negative PCR or antigen test of less than 24 hours is required;
  • A certificate of recovery from Covid-19 (RT-PCR or positive antigen test dated at least 11 days and less than 6 months).

More information can be found here. For members of “green list countries” (see the website), a sworn statement attesting to the absence of symptoms of covid-19 infection and contact with a confirmed case of covid-19 is also required. You can find it here.

Furthermore, the center has implemented a strict health protocol, providing for the wearing of masks in all premises and common areas in order to guarantee the safety of all. The full health and safety protocol can be accessed here, please read it before your arrival.

LAST REMINDER

Please read the hints in the registration form! After filling the form and pressing the button “Register”, a window will open with your invoice. Please print the window with the invoice for your records! You will also get an email with the registration data afterwards. If you are an ALERT members, the corresponding representative of your ALERT institution will receive the registration data too.

Workshop and Doctoral School announcement

Dear ALERT community,

As sanitary conditions are improving, certainly thanks to the vaccination, we are confident that it will be possible to meet again in September 2021 in Aussois.

However, it cannot be ruled out that travel restrictions will still be in place at that time, particularly from outside the EU. The conditions for entering France will depend on your country of departure and your vaccination status (https://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/en/coming-to-france/coronavirus-advice-for-foreign-nationals-in-france/#sommaire_1 ).

Therefore, for the first time in the history of ALERT, the decision was taken to organize the workshop and the doctoral school in hybrid mode in 2021. It means it will be possible to attend these events while being present in Aussois or remotely. This way, we hope to meet the expectations of both those eager to meet and those unwilling to travel.

In the coming weeks, you will be able to register and choosing one of these two options (which can be modified if necessary).

Keep staying safe, long life to ALERT-Geomaterials!

Last day reminder for the registration for the Invited Lecture, PhD Prize and E-School (September 28th to October 1st 2020)

Dear Alert friends,

As you know, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and after careful consideration, the Bureau and the BoD have decided to cancel the ALERT workshop in 2020 — it will take place in 2021 (from September 27 to September 29).

But the Doctoral School, the PhD Prize as well as the Invited Lecture will take place online (via one of the several available platforms for distance teaching).
The doctoral E-School on “Point based numerical methods in geomechanics” is organized by Pr. Manolo Pastor and Pr. Wei Wu (see description). It will take place remotely every morning from September 28th to October 1st.

The PhD prize and the Invited Lecture will take place remotely on Tuesday September 29th, from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm (CET) for the ALERT PhD prize 2020 and from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm (CET) for our ALERT Invited lecturer, Pr. Chris Spiers.

All these events are free of charge and available for ALERT and non-ALERT members. However, the registration is mandatory.

It is thus my great pleasure to announce that the registration for the 2020 ALERT Geomaterials events is open now!  After filling the form and pressing the button “Register”, you will get an email with the registration data. In case of the registration of the ALERT members, the corresponding representative of the ALERT institution will receive the registration data too.

Registration is now closed.

Stay healthy,

Frédéric COLLIN, ALERT Director.
