VENUE
The NTNU campus at Dragvoll offers excellent conference facilities as well a
beautiful physical setting as it overlooks Trondheim and the Trondheim
fjord. The city of Trondheim (Norway's ancient capital and home to the
Nidaros Cathedral, the largest Gothic cathedral north of the Rhine) is
easily accessible by air and rail, and is itself more than worth the visit.
(Beyond city-related information provided on the conference website, start
