This is the schedule for the Thirteenth DELPH-IN Summit, Oslo.


The meeting will be held at the Department of Informatics (IFI) at the University of Oslo (UiO). The venue is easily accessible by public transport from the city center and reachable by foot from the Gyldenløve hotel in a good thirty-minute walk. Please see the instructions for how to reach the department.

Meetings, coffee breaks, and lunches will all be at the IFI ‘faculty club’ (Informatikksalen) on the fifth floor in Section D of the building; this is the ‘tower’ end of the building, where there should be ten floors on building signs and in the elevators. It is impossible to reach the fifth floor from other sections of the building, hence please make sure to find the correct elevators or staircase first. When reaching the department by metro (t-bane) or tram (trikk), it is but a few steps from the Forskningsparken stop to the IFI building. Enter via the black foot bridge that crosses a little artificial creek and feeds onto a passageway through the building; from that path, take the entrance to the right into Section D and proceed to the fifth floor.
