The deadline for the registrations and cancellations are extended to 13th May 2022.  

All presentations will be selected from the submitted abstract by the help of our scientific committee (see below).

Given the increasing size of our community, we hope to accommodate as many labs as possible within the capacity of the venue. So please feel free to spread the news among other group leaders, who might be interested. As of now, we have around around 60 group leaders and in total around 140 people expressed their interest in this event. We can accommodate 1 group leader and maximum 2 trainees for each laboratory. If we have more space, we will announce this later, so that if you have additional trainees who might wish to come, they can register first come first basis.

COVID19 measures: During the conference, we will follow the rules and regulations recommended by Norway, not more, not less. Currently (June 2022) there are no COVID19 related restrictions within Norway. Please follow the updated recommendations from this website:

Travel to venue: It is likely that most of you will fly to Trondheim Airport. From the airport you may take a train to the city. You will notice that the trains are not very often ( ), but they are most cost efficient way to get to the city. Most of us take the airport shuttle bus ( which leaves airport every 15 min. You won’t need to reserve your tickets most of the time, but if you wish to do so, you may use the link above. Airport shuttle bus costs around 200NOK. Finally, you may also take a taxi at Trondheim Airport, but this might be expensive if you take taxi on the spot. If you pre-order flytaxi ( it is a lot cheaper (around 400-500 NOK), and you ride with few others in the cab.

Accommodation: Trondheim has many nice hotels that you may choose to stay. We also have an agreed price with the conference venue Clarion Hotel. The rates are 1190NOK single / 1390NOK double per night including breakfast. Currently 75 rooms are reserved for this agreed rate. To book rooms at this agreed rate you will need to contact email:  and give the booking reference “22315”, in addition to your name, phone number and credit card number + expiry date of the card as a guarantee for the booking.

About Trondheim and the region: Trondheim and its surrounding is incredibly beautiful during summer, so please consider taking sometime before or after the meeting to explore, hike, swim in the ocean and the lakes. Here are some ideas for things to do very near the city: , and broad Trondelag region:

We hope to see you all soon in beautiful Trondheim this summer.
