Following a challenging two years, we plan to bring back Astro Hack Week in October 2022. We are excited to welcome you to the Haus der Astronomie (HdA) and the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy (MPIA) in Heidelberg, Germany for an inclusive, accessible and fun event.
Applications for Astro Hack Week 2022 are now open! Please submit your application by midnight AoE on Friday, June 3rd, 2022 to receive full consideration. Selected participants will be notified by early July.
While travel is now possible, there are still many restrictions which are continuously changing and many may still prefer to avoid travel.
For these reasons, the 2022 Astro Hack Week will be an in-person conference with the option for remote participation.
For those who wish to attend in person, here is a brief summary of current travel restrictions.
Entry to Germany is limited to nationals from EU member states, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Iceland as well as those vaccinated with
approved in Germany. Exceptions are possible
and scientists but we recommend checking with your local German embassy to confirm if these apply to you.
Travelers are obligated to provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR test and proof of vaccination or recovery upon entering the country.
Additionally, MPIA and HdA are now operating under 2G
rules whereby only vaccinated (with a Germany-approved vaccine) or recovered individuals
are allowed on the premises. We will continue to update this infomation but restrictions may change quickly. Please check with a
German embassy for the most up-to-date information as well as specific restrictions and visa requirements based on your location and citizenship.
Email us if you have any questions or concerns.
We hope to see you in Heidelberg in October!
