Conference Update and Nusa Dua Safety Protocols

Planning and preparation for the 2016 ICFP continue on schedule as we near the opening days of the conference. We are saddened by news of the recent attack in Jakarta, and we are working closely with the government to ensure that plans in Nusa Dua continue to move forward with the safety of our valued delegates in mind. The conference remains on schedule, and we will continue to monitor the situation in the days ahead.

For those who are not familiar with the geography of Indonesia, Nusa Dua is 750 miles away from Jakarta. Bali province has long taken security very seriously, which is one of the reasons it was chosen as the site of the ICFP. The Nusa Dua compound where the conference will be held is only accessible through three guarded checkpoints; everyone entering will be subject to a security search. Visitors and vehicles will be subject to a second security search at the entrance of each hotel, restaurant, and conference venue.

Safety and security remain our top priority, and we will be in touch if there are any other updates. We look forward to seeing you in Nusa Dua for this important and exciting conference!
