Health and Safety
We are implementing procedures and protocols in all areas of the conference in compliance with Rice University COVID policies. Let’s all work together to keep each other healthy.
There is no vaccination or pre-conference test requirement; you do not have to show your vaccine card or get tested in advance to attend this conference. We do request if you are feeling ill, to please stay home.
We encourage – but do not require – everyone to carry masks at all times on campus and use their best judgment on when it’s appropriate to wear a mask. For people who have special health concerns or want a higher level of protection, a well-fitted KN95 mask offers good protection for the user and is significantly better than cloth and disposable surgical masks.
