Social Activities

As an optional, non-professional, pre-conference activity, we are offering a guided walk along the Oslo waterfront on the evening of Sunday, June 18. The plan is to stroll through both Akershus Festning (historic Oslo) and Akerbrygge (modern Oslo), enjoy good views of the fjord, and end up at an outside beer garden with drinks and snacks. The waterfront walk is included in the conference fee, though not the refreshments. We will start at 18:00 from the Oslo town hall (rådhuset), where we meet right in front of the town hall on the waterfront side, i.e. where the streetcar runs along the town hall front.

On the evening of Monday, June 19, everyone is invited to participate in the conference dinner. The dinner will be held from 18:30 at Jeppe Restauranthuset near the university. We plan to leave jointly from the conference right after the poster session, which ends at 18:15. Jeppe is a gentle fifteen minute walk away from the conference site; people who would prefer to book a taxi instead, please do so through the registration desk.
