Arrival in Tromsø: No matter if you arrive on Monday or Sunday, there will be a shuttle bus to the conference venue departing at 5 p.m. from Tromsø airport. The bus will wait for you in front of the terminal building (when you leave the terminal building a bit to the left behind the airport buses). The bus will be marked with ISGSB. If you arrive between 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. please insert your flight information for the flight arriving in Tromsø here: https://nettskjema.uio.no/answer/isgsb-transport.html. This will allow us to check for flight delays and wait for you if necessary. If you miss the connection please inform me as soon as possible by e-mail. All Norwegian airports provide free WiFi and Eduroam access. If we have no travel information from you and you are not in the bus at 5 p.m., we will assume that you will arrange transport yourself. Please note that a taxi to the conference venue does cost more than 120 Euro and the trip takes about 1hour (one way). There is no public transport available on Monday evening and none at all on Sunday!
Arrival at the hotel: All participants arriving with the shuttle bus, will find their room cards on a desk in the foyer of the hotel close to the reception. They will be marked with your name and sorted in alphabetical order. On Sunday the dinner will start at 7 p.m. on Monday it will start at 6:30 p.m. Please make sure that you are at the hotel restaurant in time, as we will have 3-course-dinner both days and we can not start before everyone is there. If the bus is delayed, you will receive updated information in the bus. One drink (beer, wine, cider or non-alcoholic) is included at each dinner, further beverage can be ordered at your own expense. Payment is possible by credit card.
Oral presentations: Please transfer your talk to the computer used for presentations latest in the break before your session. If you want to use your own computer please let us know as soon as possible, such that we can check compatibility with the systems.
Poster presentations: There will be two poster sessions, one on Tuesday afternoon and one on Thursday afternoon. All posters should be A0 portrait. You have to bring the printed poster along, as we have no possibilities for printing at the conference venue.
General information: Please bring waterproof warm clothes and shoes with you. At the moment the temperature are between 5 and 10 degree Celsius but can easily go down to 0 during the night. With wind coming from the sea it can therefore be quite cold. There are possibilities for short hikes but good waterproof shoes are required as the hikes go partially through wetlands and over rocky terrain. If you have a headlamp it is advisable to bring it along. The whole conference including hotel rooms, cottages and huts are non-smoking. Smoking is only allowed in designated areas outside of the hotel.
There are no shops at the conference venue, the exception being one very small supermarket!
