Practical information

Informal gathering friday evening at Skarven, 7pm.

Before we start with the conference, we will meet for an informal gathering at Skarven Kro in the city centre of Tromsø on friday evening at 7pm. Skarven Kro is just a stone’s throw away from Rica Grand Hotel. Just follow the street down to the water. Skarven Kro is on the left hand side at the end of the street. If you arrive later in the evening, drop in and check if we are still there, enjoying a northern norwegian Mack-beer under the midnight sun!

Dinner saturday evening

After a long day at the conference site, we plan to take the cable car up the mountain Fløya. There we will have a magnificent view of Tromsø and the surrounding mountains.

We invite all our participants with papers to dinner at fjellstua cafe. Enjoy local food under the midnight sun!

We will meet in the city center and take the bus 20 (26) to the cable car. If you want to, you can take a walk across the bridge to the mainland and meet us at the cable car. We will pay for the cable car.
Don’t forget proper clothes, if you want to take a walk outside on the mountain plateau – it can get quite chilly in the evening, even though the midnight sun is shining!

It is also possible to take the cable car up the mountain without participating at the dinner.
