A detailed program will be posted soon. 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 8:45. The scientific program starts at 9:15 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.
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 walk to the Carlsberg Academy.
Scandic-Falkoner is close to the Frederiksberg Metro Station that connects directly to the airport with the Metro line M2. CabInn Scandinavia is close to Forum Metro Station, that also connects directly to the airport with the Metro line M2.
There are public transportation alternatives (or taxis) if you prefer not to walk between your hotel and the Carlsberg Academy. From Scandic-Falkoner you can take bus 18 from Frederiksberg Townhall (Frederiksberg Rådhus) 4 stops to "Bjerregårdsvej (Valby Langgade)". From CabInn Scandinavia 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").
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.
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.
