Invitation & News

  • Here is a table of the Accepted Papers
  • IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to construction at NTNU’s campus, bus lines going to the campus areas have been limited. Because of this, you can no longer use buses 5 & 22 to get to all the way to the conference venue. You may still take bus 5 and 22 but you have to get off at Studentersamfundet (the Students House)and then walk up the hill to campus Gløshaugen. This is a walk of about 600 metres. Bus 63 will continue operating as normal. We also refer you to the provided program map for instructions leading you to the correct building. We also recommend walking all the way from the hotels to campus Gløshaugen!
