Crossroads of Clinical Practice and Research
Trondheim, Norway, 14-18 Aug. 2002
Trondheim was founded by King Olav Tryggvason in 997 AD. Norway's first capital city is located by one of the largest fjords of Norway with the salmon river Nidelven running through its centre. Today the city has close to 150,000 inhabitants and its total area is 342 square km. The city is an administration, business, and technology centre in a rich agricultural area surrounding the Trondheim fjord. It is a university city and has Norway's most advanced research community in science and technology.
Normally the weather is pleasant in Trondheim in August. The temperature may vary from 10°to 25°C. Rainy days may occur.
The conference language is English.
If a personal invitation to the conference is required, please contact the Congress Secretariat.
If applicable, we advise you to apply for visas immediately. No visa is required for US, Canadian and most European citizens. In the summer season the visa office in Norway is extremely busy and delays can be expected. The Secretariat is not in a position to speed up the application process.
There are frequent domestic flights between Trondheim and the international airports in Oslo, Bergen and Stavanger. Flying time between Oslo and Trondheim is 45 minutes. There is also a direct flight between Copenhagen and Trondheim running twice a day.
Travelling by train within Norway gives an excellent opportunity for sight-seeing, and Norwegian trains are of a high standard. The train journey over the mountains from Oslo to Trondheim takes approximately 7 hours.
An interesting alternative is to travel by coastal steamer express from Bergen to Trondheim, 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 concerning travel to Trondheim.
Reservations have been made at hotels in four various price categories, see Registration Form. Most of the hotels are situated in, or near to the city centre. The number of rooms within each category is limited. For reservati-ons, please fill in the necessary infor-mation on the registration form. Rooms will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. We therefore strongly recommend you to register as soon as possible. Reservations have been made for the congress period. If you would like to extend your reservation we will do our best to help you.
Such reservations will be confirmed on an availability basis, as well as reser-vations received after the registration deadline.
