Opening reception and registration
The City of Aarhus is hosting the official opening reception of the WETPOL2019 and SWS Europe Chapter Meeting on Monday 17 June, 17:00 – 19:00. The reception will be held at the Town Hall, designed by the famous Danish architect Arne Jacobsen. Address: Rådhuspladsen 2, 8000 Aarhus C. Doors open for registration at 16:30.
Registration can also be done at the conference venue at Aarhus University on Tuesday from 7:30.
The venue is called the Lakeside Lecture Theatre (Søauditorierne) at Aarhus University, Bartholins Allé 3, 8000 Aarhus C.
How to get to the University?
The conference venue is in walking distance from downtown Aarhus and the Comwell and Wake Up hotels (about 30 minutes walk). If you want to use the public transport system, the “letbanen” cable train connects to the university. Pick line L2 towards “Aarhus Universitetshospital” and get off at “Universitetsparken”. Tickets and information here.
Arriving by car
To avoid parking tickets on the University Campus Site please register your car here (fill in the registration number of your car). Please note that parking is only permitted at the designated AU parking lot areas, which do not include the parking lots at the Science Museums on Campus.
What to bring?
Bring shoes for walking and perhaps a coat and warm clothing. Practical shoes is a good choice if you have signed up for the field trips. Of course the mid-summer weather will be on its best behaviour with sunrise at 04:30 and sunset at 22:40. Yet Summer in Denmark has many faces including clouds, wind and rain.
