Practical Information

Traveling to Oslo? First time attendee to the conference? Look no further. We have put together some useful information to ensure you get the most out of the conference.

Changes to the Registration Process

Based on your feedback, we have made some changes to the registration process to ensure fair distribution of seats while keeping the conference free for the community.

We are shifting from a “first come, first served” registration system to an application-based approach.

 

This change aims to fairly distribute seats across the community and give every team an opportunity to participate. Last year, some teams missed out because they didn’t register quickly enough.​

This year, you have the flexibility to choose to participate on one or both conference dates.

You may apply to register for a seat during:

Aug 15th - September 5th.

Applicants will receive a confirmation about their seats approximately a week after September 5th.

Getting There

Getting to Oslo from the airport

The fastest and cheapest way to get to Oslo from the airport is by train. Tickets for the Airport Express Train are available at the arrivals area at OSL.

Both train stations in the Oslo city center (Oslo S and Nationaltheatret) are served by the airport express train and within walking distance of the venue. Use the one closest to your hotel.

Visit Oslo has useful information for travelers arriving at OSL airport.

Note: Several airports may sometimes be referred to as "Oslo Airport". The recommended airport is Gardermoen (OSL).

Getting around in Oslo

Getting around in central Oslo is easy and convenient. Public transport options include buses, trams, metro, rental bikes and electric scooters.

The Venue

As of 2023, the conference is held at Eldorado Esport & Entertainment which is located in the middle of central Oslo. Converted from an old cinema, it is now a modern esports and gaming facility which also hosts events such as conferences and live studio broadcasts. This is our first time hosting the conference away from our traditional home at Telenor Expo, Fornebu. We promise to do all that we can to bring you the experience you have come to expect there over the years.

Attendees will be provided with a light sandwich-based lunch, which is sponsored for the event but you are also free to explore a vast array of lunch options available in the surrounding area. Let us know upon registration if you have any dietary restrictions or other needs that we should take into account.

NOTE: The two workshops are NOT located at Eldorado. They are held respectively at the mnemonic HQ in Henrik Ibsens Gate and the Sopra Steria HQ in Biskop Gunnerus Gate (Posthuset).

Directions

Torggata is located off Karl Johans Gate in central Oslo. Walk east and look for the late-19th century portal with its characteristic canopy.

Note: Pre-conference Workshops are not held at Eldorado. Attendees will be provided directions separately.
