All participants are advised to:

Please see the official information for entry to Norway.
Obligatory testing at the border is no longer a requirement, neither is proof of negative test (unless you are not vaccinated). However, proof of vaccination and/or prior covid-infection needs to be provided.
Exhibition location: Spacious foyer outside the lecture room «The Box». In this way the program can continue as planned with free movement of all participants during the exhibition sessions.
Exhibition time slots: Main session will be Thursday from 18:00-20:00, with «bubbles» and scientific posters. However, participants will have breaks with snacks in the exhibition area at other time points throughout the meeting too, see full program for details. We advise that you are present at your table at those times.
Exhibition set up: 07:00-09:00 Thursday February 10th. One table and one chair will be available for each registered company. Please bring extension cords and charge any lap tops prior to exhibition as there are limited numbers of electrical sockets at the exhibition area.
Exhibition security: As the exhibition area is in the foyer, any valuables (e.g. instruments) must be moved back in to «The Box» (the lecture room) before the conference dinner. «The box» will be locked during the night, and you need to move everything back out in the foyer before the program starts at 09:00 Friday morning.
Format: Bring your poster in any desired format as the poster will be hung on the walls directly. We need to use painter’s tape, the organizing committee will provide the right tape.
Place: The posters will have allocated wall space in the foyer/exhibition area (just outside the lecture room «The Box»). We will hang numbers on the wall to mark the poster locations, and you need to find the location matching your poster number. See booklet and information from Brith Bergum.
Mounting time point: Posters may be mounted on your allocated wall space before the program starts at 10:00 Thursday. The tape will be available from the committee at the registration desk. Please return the tape there when finished.
