The SC22 conference, scheduled for Nov. 13-18, announced that COVID-19 vaccinations are no longer required for attendance.

The conference issued the following statement:

“Planning a conference in a world of COVID-19 is challenging as we never know what the virus will do next. The SC22 Planning Committee has followed the science along with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization recommendations, and integrated that information with the views and input of the HPC community. As vaccinations for this virus have significantly reduced serious illness, hospitalization, and death, the SC22 attendance policy was for all in-person attendees to be vaccinated.

“Because Texas prohibits such requirements, going forward, all SC22 in-person attendees are strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, follow the CDC guidance, and to properly wear (covering nose, mouth and chin) a high-quality KN-95 or N-95 face mask while at SC22. SC22 will have a supply of KN-95 masks available to attendees during the conference.”
