Practical information

The conference is free of charge, but you have to pay for any travel and accommodation yourself. From September when the centre's new administrative coordinator is in place, we will answer questions you might have on travel and accommodation. We plan for a physical conference following any local and national COVID-19 regulations. Should the COVID-19 situation change for the worse, we will change our plans for physical gatherings accordingly. Please contact communications adviser Norunn Torheim on if you have any questions before the programme is out in August.
