Conference Venues

The main conference will take place in Georg Sverdrup's House, Blindern Campus, University of Oslo, and the Welcome reception at the Geological Museum at Tøyen Campus.

Opened in 1999, Georg Sverdrup's House is one of the landmarks at Blindern Campus. Though largely occupied by the Universitys Humanities and Social Sciences Library, this monumental building also has educational facilities as well as a cafe.

The Geological Museum is located in the Botanical Garden. This oasis in east Oslo is home not only to the Natural History Museum, but exotic plants such as cacti, orchids and palms, and indigenous species, including Norwegian wild flowers. Thousands of mountain plants flourish in the rock garden, cut through by waterfalls.
