Dear speaker at OUGN2020

As you hopefully already know, we are postponing OUGN2020 until October 2020.
The new dates will be Wednesday Oct 21st till Friday Oct 23rd.

We really hope you can make it in October, as your presentation helps keep our program awesome.

Call for actions:
If you still want to help us making OUGN2020 a unique conference, you only need to reschedule flights and cancel hotel in Oslo, if booked. In August we will reach out to you again for the final confirmation.

Notice that we are sailing from Wednesday morning until Friday morning this time! Speakers dinner will be Tuesday 20th of Oct at the Asia Restaurant in Aker Brygge.

If you by any chance cannot make it, let us know by sending an email to c4p@ougn.no

Since this is an extraordinary situation, we will of course make a refund of the ticket for the conference if needed. On the other hand, we really hope you will join us in October.
For refund, send an email to styret@ougn.no with subject ‘OUGN2020 conference Oslo-Kiel refund’ before April 1st.

Free dinner - all speakers are invited!
Please confirm your attendance in our c4p app. https://c4p.ougn.no

In our c4p app https://c4p.ougn.no you have the option Fast Track. This applies to when we arrive back to Oslo on Saturday. If you are in a hurry, check this option and we will include you in our Fast Track service to get you off the boat, the fastest possible way! Return to the port of Oslo Saturday morning 21st at 10:00 AM. You should expect a travel time of at least one hour from the port to the airport. The actual amount of time varies based on changes in traffic, weather and other travel conditions.

The fastest and reasonably priced way to get from the airport to the city is the airport express train Flytoget, taxi is 5x more expensive.
The station nearest to the Speaker's Dinner and the ship is called NATIONALTHEATRET, the station after the central station OSLO S. Note: Half of the trains have OSLO S central station as ending station. If you have to step off on OSLO S you could just wait for the next train or take a taxi just outside the central station.
More info and alternatives:
Transport to/from Oslo Airport Gardermoen - www.visitoslo.com

There is a hotel close to the Speaker's Dinner and within walking distance to the ferry terminal: Thon Hotel Vika
If you like to stay on lower budget there is also a Smart Hotel
