For this conference ca. 130 spots are available. We have currently not opened for registration now, but if you are sure that you want to participate, make sure to become an SPPS member as we will send out the link for registration via the newsletter first. Also make sure to follow us on Twitter to always get updates on program and organization! If Covid-19 makes it impossible for the conference to be held at that date, it will either be moved by one year or held online.
As it is SPPS' tradition, we will be giving out our prestigeous SPPS Prizes to our awardees on the SPPS conference. All prize winners will be invited to the conference. To win one of the SPPS Prizes, the candidate has to be nominated by an SPPS member and also has to be a member themselves. So make sure, your membership is up to date! Nominations for SPPS prizes have to be sent in by 20th of January 2021 at the latest.
Holding a conference at such a remote location means that there will be very few locals attending. That is why you will be able to book your accommodation during the registration for the conference. We are closely working together with the Radisson Blu Polar Hotel and Coal Miners Cabins for more affordable accommodation. As the flight schedule is not finally set yet, rooms are reserved from August 24th to 27th.
Holding a conference at a spectacular location is not cheap but with the support of SPPS funds, we can offer a conference fee as low as 2000 NOK (Norwegian Kronor) for our members.
