Trondheim is a centre of knowledge with a highly respected university, many popular colleges and a research community ranking among the best in Europe.  The conference will be held from Monday to Tuesday from the 22nd to the 23rd October. We recommend spending the weekend in town the days before the conference.  Amongst many attractions you can visit is Rockheim - Norway’s Interactive Home of Rock and Roll. The permanent exhibition at Rockheim is organised as a timeline, charting the development of contemporary Norwegian music and popular culture through the decades, from 1950 to the present-day.
