The meeting will take place in the Technology building (TB) and in the Pharmasy Building (PB) on the main University Campus. The Technolgy building is the home of the Department of Physics and Technolgy and the Department of Engineering and Safety. It is the most recent building on campus and we transferred here during fall 2014. The Pharmasy building is in close vicinity to TB and is also one of the most recent buildings on campus. We are using their Auditorium Tabletten (The Pill), and outside the auditorium there is a nice area for posters and coffee breaks.
The parallel sessions Monday will take place in TB Auditoriums, and the plenary sessions will take place in the PB Auditorium Tabletten.
GETTING THERE AND AWAY
By air: Both Norwegian Airlines and SAS operate Tromsø from Gardermoen (Oslo). From Tromsø Airport, you may take a taxi to the city center or to the UiT Campus. Both rides take about 10 minutes and cost ca NOK 200,-. The Airport Express Coach is also an option, see more information on Tromsø Airport website.
By land: Trains run as far as Bodø (NSB through Norway) or as far as Narvik (SJ through Sweden). From Bodø you may continue by plane, ferry or bus to Tromsø, while from Narvik buses are the better option. See Visit Tromsø for more information and time schedules.
By car you follow E6 north or south until you hit E8 at Nordkjosbotn, Troms.
From there it is about one hour to drive to the Tromsø city. To reach the UiT campus you can cross the bridge and follow the road immediately to the right. Pass three roundabouts and go left uphills in the fourth. Take left again past the GREEN building (Forskningsparken) and go straight uphills until you find the guest parking lots on your left. To pay the parking, there is only ONE automat on the entire campus, close to the roofed bike parking. Otherwise, it is possible to use the Tromsø Parkering App. See http://tromso-parkering.no/parkering/e-parkering/ for more information.
By sea: If making a scenic holiday of your journey here, please consider the Coastal Steamer which runs from Bergen to Kirkenes and back again. Ships call on Tromsø twice a day, one northbound and one southbound.
The Tromsø city center is ca 7 km from the UiT Campus. Buses run regularly and take about 7 minutes. For information on schedules and tickets, please see Tromskortet
