Practical information for your travels

On the website we gathered some practical information on the venue, conference dinner, and transportation to and within Odense.

The conference starts on 23 March with registration from 9.00 and the keynote at 9.30.

The conference takes place at the University Campus (Campusvej 55). This is a 20 minutes bus ride away from the city center where most of the hotels are located. Please allow for enough time to travel to the campus. You can read more information on how to get there under transportation.

On Thursday we will have the conference dinner. Below we gathered some suggestions on where to go for dinner if you are in Odense on Wednesday or Friday.

In case of questions, please contact us on ecrea@sam.sdu.dk, or call +45 40227625.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Odense next week!

Programme available

The programme and list of participants can now be found on the Programme-page.

Each presenter will have 15 minutes for their presentation. All conference rooms are equipped with projectors, but not necessarily with a computer.You would ideally bring your own computer or bring your presentation on a memory stick and ask one of the other presenters if you can use their computer

Apart from the keynote and 16 panels, the conference also features two special sessions on Thursday afternoon:

High density session Participants present their research on a poster, which will be put up in the hall way. The session starts with an introduction round, where each presenter introduces her poster in a brief talk. After these talks the audience is invited to visit the posters and discuss the work with the researchers.

YECREA Workshop Interested phd-candidates, postdocs and assistant professors are invited to join the YECREA workshop ‘Publication strategies: How to successfully collaborate with international colleagues’. The workshop is chaired and organized by YECREA representative Corinna Lauerer.
