Invitation to the 2021 NorTED seminar in Odense, 1–2 November

The NorTED steering group is happy to announce that this year’s joint seminar days will be held in Odense in the form of a pre-conference to NERA. Our aim has been to cut costs and to minimize travel while encouraging participation in the NERA conference 3–5 November.

Venue: Our pre-conference will be held at the SDU campus free of charge for all participating doctoral students and senor researchers from NorTED member institutions.

Accommodation: Rooms have been pre-booked at City Hotel at 625 DKK from 1–2 Nov. If you who plan to stay for NERA, you may extend your reservation. Reservations can be cancelled free of charge up to 15 days before arrival. https://www.cityhotelnattergalen.dk/

Preliminary program: The seminar will start after lunch (13:00) on 1 November and end with a joint dinner on 2 November. The two days will primarily consist of student presentations with feedback and more informal discussions of doctoral students’ ongoing research. As before, our aim is to make good use of the joint expertise among our senior researchers.

Deadline for registration and abstracts is preliminary set to 1 September.

But note that the deadlines for NERA is much earlier: https://www.sdu.dk/en/om_sdu/institutter_centre/ikv/nera_2021

We look forward to seeing you IRL in November!
