The main events outside plenary activities and parallel sessions are the reception and the dinner. As they are approaching fast, some additional information may be called for.

Welcome reception and early registration

Pre-conference registration is available in the Student Union Building from 5 pm on July 1. You can come and get your conference material, find the lecture theatre for the keynotes, and walk to the building where we meet for parallel sessions, the poster session, and the General Assembly to get a sense of the layout.

At 7 pm on July 1 in the Student union building, a welcome reception is offered by the city of Gothenburg. The First Deputy Lord Mayor Pär Gustafsson welcomes you to Göteborg and presents the city briefly.
