The Seventh Conference of States Parties (CSP7) will be held in a hybrid format. This means that a limited number of delegates will be able to participate in the Conference in person, and other delegates will participate virtually via the online platform (Zoom).
Participation at Conference Venue (CICG)
One seat per delegation: In accordance with the CICG policy on the implementation of current COVID-19 related restrictions set by the Swiss authorities, each registered delegation will be allocated one seat at the Conference venue to enable one representative from each delegation at a time to participate in the Conference in person.
COVID-19 measures at Conference venue: COVID-19 measures applicable at the Conference venue during CSP7 will be published on the ATT website two weeks in advance of the Conference.
Badges: Conference badges can be fetched at the Conference welcome desk from 10:30 every day during the Conference. Delegates are invited to pick up their badges early to avoid queuing.
Virtual Participation (Zoom Platform)
Access to the online platform: Delegates that have registered to the Conference will receive the link to the meetings on Friday, 27 August 2021. The link will be valid for all sessions of the Conference.
Interpretation from/into Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish will be available during the Conference. Informatin on how to use the interpretation functionality on the Zoom platform is available here.
Personal Zoom profile: Delegates are requested to ensure that the name of the State or Organization they represent and their surname are displayed in their Zoom profile. This will help the meeting facilitators to identify delegates correctly, if they are called on to speak.
Headset: Delegates are encouraged to use a headset with integrated microphone. This will support interpreters in their work and contribute to good quality of interpretation.

Delegates who wish to test or confirm their ability to access the meeting platform are invited to participate in one of the testing sessions that will be hosted by the ATT Secretariat in advance of the Conference.
