Welcome to the annual meeting in the Norwegian Association of Marine Scientists (NHF)!

Venue: Solstrand Hotell, Os utanfor Bergen

Dates: 22-24 November 2021

Practical information:

Upload your oral presentation in this form:  – select your presentation and upload your file, one day in advance. Make sure the presentation fits the 12 minutes time slot and allow time for questions (3 min).

Posters must be in the A1 or A0 format. We have no print service, so bring the printed poster.

How to get there: Use the Skyss web page or app to find the best route to Osøyro, Bjørnafjorden. From the airport: Take the tram to Nestun, change to bus 600 to Osøyro. From Bergen bus station, bus number 600 leaves every 10 or 15 minutes to Osøyro. From the bus station in Osøyro, there is a nice 1,5 km walk along the sea to the hotel, passing by Steinneset and Solstrandsfjøra.
