Covid-19, Crime & Safety
The conference venue will be exercising normal Covid-19 protocols. Please maintain social distancing, and wear your mask when not eating or drinking or giving a talk. We will provide you with branded masks for that stylish conference look.
As long as you exercise reasonable and sensible precautions, Cape Town is as safe as any other big city in the world. See https://www.drivesouthafrica.com/blog/is-cape-town-safe-for-tourists/ for an overview. Avoid the Cape Flats and industrial areas at all times, do not walk in the Central Business District alone at night (rather take an Uber back to your hotel!), and just be sensible. When in doubt, consult the LOC for advice.
The conference venue is semi-public, so please exercise reasonable care with your personal belongings, we can’t be responsible for your valuables if you leave them unattended.
