Talks, lunches and dinners etc all take place at the Carlsberg Academy. Here is a rough sketch of the program:
Friday, November 29
The Carlsberg Academy opens at 9:00. The scientific program starts at 9:30 and runs until 18:00. Lunch will be served at noon, and a dinner buffet is served from 18:00 to 19:30.
Saturday, November 30
The Carlsberg Academy opens at 8:30. The scientific program starts at 9:00 and runs until 17:00. Lunch is served at 12:30. There is a one hour break for leasure or scientific discussions (17:00-18:00), followed by a welcome beer and the conference banquet.
A note to speakers: The conference hall (the Pompeii hall) is equipped with computer and double screens that nicely can accommodate beamer presentations. Please bring your talk on a USB stick. There will also be two (small) paper flip-overs as a supplement.
From Copenhagen Airport to Scandic-Falkoner: Take Metro line M2 from the airport to Frederiksberg Metro Station. From here it is a very short walk to the hotel.
From the Central Railway Station to Scandic-Falkoner: Take Metro line M3 (direction Frederiksberg) from the central railway station to Frederiksberg Metro Station (one stop after Frederiksberg Alle). You need to buy a ticket for the metro, even if you have a train ticket to Copenhagen (unless it includes local transportation in Copenhagen). If you prefer to walk, then it is 2,5 km (walk down Vesterbrogade, and then take Gl. Kongevej, or the nicer, but slightly longer route along Frederiksberg Alle).
From Copenhagen Airport to CabInn Scandinavia: Take Metro line M2 from the airport to Forum Metro Station. From here it is a short walk to the hotel.
From the Central Railway Station to CabInn Scandinavia: It is probably fastest to walk (about 1,5 km). You can walk along the lake Skt Jørgens Sø.
From Scandic-Falkoner to the Carlsberg Academy: It is a 2 km walk to the Carlsberg Academy. Alternatively, you can take bus 18 from Frederiksberg Townhall (Frederiksberg Rådhus) 4 stops to "Bjerregårdsvej (Valby Langgade)". Or you can take a taxi. NB: print this page with information about how to enter the Carlsberg Academy.
From CabInn Scandic to the Carlsberg Academy: It is a 3 km walk to the Carlsberg Academy. Alternatively, you can walk to Vesterport Station and from there take any of the S-trains (B, Bx, C or H) to Carlsberg Station (direction "Hovedbanegården"). NB: print this page with information about how to enter the Carlsberg Academy.
You can find information about the public transportation system (S-trains, Metro and buses) in Copenhagen here. This page also has information about a ticket app, that you can download.
Tickets and passes for public transportation can be bought at the Copenhagen Airport and every train or metro station. You can find the DSB office on your right-hand side as soon as you come out of the arrival area of the airport. DSB has an agreement with 7-Eleven, so many of their shops double as selling points for public transportation. A journey planner in English is available. One can also by SMS tickets, not sure if it works with non-Danish cell phones (see this Danish info-page).
Participants and speakers are staying either at the newly opened Hotel Scandic-Falkoner, which is a 2 km walk to the Carlsberg Academy, or at CabInn Scandinavia, about 3 km from the Carlsberg Academy. See the "Local transportation" accordion about how to get to the hotel from the airport or the central railway station, and from the hotel to the venue of the conference.
If you wish to participate in this conference, then please contact one of the organizers. There will be a conference fee to cover the expenses for meals at the Carlsberg Academy.
If you have been promised travel reimbursement (this applies primarily to invited speakers), then please follow these directions:

- Fill in this online reimbursement form. In the Trip information part, enter the following information:
- Host name: Mikael Rordam
- Host email: email@example.com
- Purpose of visit: Kadison memorial conference
- If you have any questions regarding your reimbursement, feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
