What is the conference format?

Due to pandemic travel restrictions, our commitment to equity, and our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, we will employ a hybrid format with online and offline events.

Why is the conference on for 5 days!?

Thanks for asking! This is for timezone coordination, as we will seek to open up the conference to as many timezones around the world as possible. Having a more flexible schedule will allow greater global participation in our online events. Plus we have a bunch of in-person events running together with the main event, which need to be scattered across multiple days.

Besides, Oslo is ridiculously beautiful and friendly, and quite walkable, so should you make it all the way here, 5 days will not seem all that much if you plan to experience the city.

Can I get financial assistance to physically attend the conference?

You can apply directly with the SFRA for travel grants!
