EURAM 2018 - Welcome to the cool and beautiful Reykjavik
Dear EURAM friends,
I hope you are excited about coming to Iceland and we look forward to seeing you at EURAM 2018 in Reykjavik. Here are just a couple of things to have in mind:
- The EURAM 2018 App is officially ready. If you haven’t downloaded the conference App you need to do so a.s.a.p. (check out the e-mail sent to you about how to download the App). We are very happy about this new addition to the conference and hope you will too. You will have the opportunity to personalise you conference and it will make everything a bit easier for you when you participate in EURAM 2018.
- The Doctoral Colloquium is unofficially starting on Sunday the 17th of June, which is also our Independence Day. If you are in Iceland already on Sunday do join the party down town and try to spot the doctoral students.
- The EURAM 2018 conference starts on the 19th of June with series of LABs. We have six LABs to choose from, three at 14:00 – 15:30 and three at 16:00 – 17:30. Check out the Labs: http://euramonline.org/programme2018/euram-labs-2018.html
- The Welcome Reception will be at 17:30 – 18:30 on the 19th of June at the University of Iceland – Haskolatorg. The Dean of the Business School will make a short introduction but we have decided to celebrate the Women’s Rights Day especially and one of our speakers will make a tribute to this remarkable day. Then, we will enjoy some light refreshments.
- The SIG Kick-offs will start on the 20th of June at 9:00. Most of the SIGs are Kicking-off the conference with a special event. Please, join one of this fantastic sessions to make more friends as early as possible.
- We also have a special event for the First Timers at the conference on the 20th of June at 9:00. Join that session if it is the first time you are at EURAM, it will give you the overview that you need to get the most out of the conference.
- The formal Opening Ceremony of the conference is at 13:30 on the 20th of June at the University Cinema. It will be followed by a Plenary I which focuses on the theme of the conference: Research in Action.
- We also want to remind you that we have allocated Hang-Out Bars to all the SIGs where you have an opportunity to hang-out with your EURAM friends. This we have done in effort to make it easier for you to meet interesting and like-minded people at EURAM.
- Last but not least, the weather forecast isn’t all that great as it is expected to be around 10 degrees Celsius. Icelanders like to say it will be cool and beautiful. So, do bring something else than shorts and T-shirts with you on the journey (http://en.vedur.is/).
- Remember to join EURAM2018 on Facebook, we are promoting EURAM2018 events there: facebook.com/euram2018/
Thank you once again for joining EURAM 2018 in Reykjavik. I look forward to seeing you in Iceland.
All the best,
