We do hope to see many international participants for the conference, and regret that we cannot financially aide you.

Hotels

There are plenty of hotels in Copenhagen with different price levels. Two hotels located close to the venue is the Ascot Hotel (4 stars) and Ibsens Hotel (4 stars). Some cheaper options include Wakeup Copenhagen (new 2 stars) and Savoy Hotel (3 stars). You will often be able to find special offers by searching the internet for hoteloffers in Copenhagen, and some youth hostels offers cheap accomodation, too. See for example Danhostel Copenhagen City, and more hostels at Danhostel.

Getting here and around

The Copenhagen Metro is running from the airport every 5 minutes. It takes 15 minutes to the City Centre (Noerreport station).

Getting around in Copenhagen is easy. Many of the hotels are within walking distance from the campus, and there is a well developed public transportation system. You can plan your travels to and around Copenhagen.

You can buy single-trip tickets from the automats and counters, but if you are going to use public transportation more than once or twice during your stay, you will save on bying a 2-zone multiple trip card (the blue "2-zone klippekort"), with 10 single journeys. Stamp two times from the airport to the city centre and vice versa (valid for 1 1/2 hour), one time when going around in Copenhagen (valid for one hour).

Another usefull mean of getting around is to rent a bicycle.
