services for the academic community.
During the conference, a poster wall will be available for the
display of posters covering a topic of common interest to the
participants. Participants are invited to submit a poster of one
or two A-4 pages, presenting their project. Posters must be
handed in at the reception desk not later than Monday May 10, in

GETTING TO TRONDHEIM
Trondheim Airport has direct flights to Copenhagen and Stockholm
and further connections to European and overseas destinations.
There are frequent domestic flights between Trondheim and the
international airports in Oslo, Bergen and Stavanger.
Travelling by train within Norway gives an excellent opportunity
for sightseeing, and Norwegian trains are of high standard. The
train journey over the mountains from Oslo to Trondheim takes
approx. 7 hours. An interesting alternative is to travel to
Trondheim by coastal boat from Bergen, a journey of
approximately 30 hours along the rugged Norwegian coastline.
Your travel agent, or any SAS travel agency, can supply you with
full details on travel to Trondheim.

Originally, the island was owned by his grandfather.
The fishing village Haaholmen has long traditions as a 'meeting
point' for people travelling along the Northwest coast. The
