  • Will I get refunded if the Symposium can't be held due to COVID-19?

    Yes. We are optimistically hoping that by April 2022 the virus outbreak will have been overcome. In case this is not true, attendees will be offered the option of receiving a full refund. If needed, the Symposium will be held online. In that case a partial refund will be offered to attendees who still want to attend the conference.

  • Do I have to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend the event?

    We will abide by all governmental regulations when holding the event. It is too soon to know whether in April 2022 it will be necessary to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to travel or to attend massive events. In anticipation to possible restrictions, we recommend you to plan to get your COVID-19 vaccine before coming to the Symposium.

  • Will social distancing and sanitary measures be guaranteed if COVID-19 is still a public health concern?

    This pandemic has hit on every aspect of our daily lives and there are for sure changes that have come to stay. Even if the pandemic has been overcome, we will make sure hygene and healthy requirements are met and we will provide attendees, if necessary, with hand sanitizer, masks and any other support they might seek. Social distancing will be guaranteed.

  • I am worried about taking public transport to get to the venue. What would you recommend?

    We understand the personal stress and health concerns that travelling in a crowded public transport might bring. We will provide a list of nearby accommodations to minimise the amount of transport needed. Barcelona also has an optimised bus network which is often less crowded than its underground and we encourage you to make the most of it.

  • Can I attend the symposium on-line in case I cannot travel to Barcelona?

    Yes. The 4th Symposium on Space Educational Activities will be an in-person event, but we believe that the on-line part of our professional and social interactions has come to stay. Thus, we will offer a part of the in-person event through the Internet as well. The on-line mode is in no way intended to deliver an experience similar to the one of the in-person event.

    You can buy an on-line ticket here at a low cost that will provide you live access to the presentations as they are delivered during the Symposium, as well as the possibility of presenting your paper remotely. In addition, you will be given access to the Symposium's internal on-line chat service, which you may use to interact virtually with other ateendees and/or with companies and organisations attending the event. Please note that these are the sole parts of the Symposium covered by the on-line ticket.
