Support to Early Career Researchers (ECRs) is offered in the form of considerably reduced registration fees.

We have received 65 abstracts and foresee an interesting and fruitful conference! In case anyone would like to request a belated abstract submission, please send an email to the chair of the LOC at We also hope for a well-attended post-conference NORDQUA excursion.

Important notes:

  1. We strongly recommend that you book your travel and accommodation as soon as possible. The post-conference NORDQUA excursion will be run as three day trips from Akureyri so that participants don’t need to change accommodation if attending both parts of the joint event.
  2. NICEAIR offers direct flights between Copenhagen and Akureyri. Those who need connecting flights are advised to consider this option. A round-trip deal at 290EUR is offered through this link:
