Portugal requires an EU digital vaccination certificate for entry (information current as of June 23, 2022). Please see information on the Lisbon Airport website about COVID-19 entry requirements.

If you’re traveling from the U.S., visit the U.S. Embassy & Consulate in Portugal‘s website for travel recommendations and regulations (These regulations are subject to change, and it is best to check for updates via airline carrier):

PowerPoints and projectors

Every session room is equipped with a computer, projector, and projection screen. Session organizers are strongly encouraged to collect all presentations on a USB flash drive before the conference and to arrive early to pre-load these files. This will help prevent technological delays during the session. 

Attendees wishing to test their presentations on projecting equipment prior to the start of their sessions are encouraged to arrive early at their session room or to in-quire about alternative testing sites by visiting the Registration Desk. Remember! You must bring your presentation on a flash drive.

Payments & Certificates of Attendance

A CES staff member will be on call throughout the conference to facilitate on-site registrations for non-presenting attendees, and answer administrative and financial questions. Visit us at CES Administrative Services, next to the Registration Desk. To request an e-Certificate of Attendance, simply email with your full name, university affiliation, session number, and panel or paper title.
