For the purpose of preventing and controlling the epidemic at this conference, upon careful organization and planning, CHINADA, for the first time, adopted the combination of online and on-site conference to strictly control the number of on-site participants. One main venue and five sub-venues were set up in Beijing, and 30 sub-venues were set up in provinces and cities outside Beijing. All participants completed the online accreditation test at the same time. Besides, CHINADA required all the on-site participants to sign the DCO Commitment to Covid-19 Survey, have temperatures taken, wear face masks and keep social distance while sitting, which minimized the risk of gathering while ensuring the effectiveness of the Seminar.
