Member Kristine Kelly has volunteered to organize a job exchange in conjuntion with this year's conference, the "SD Career Link." Member Usman Ghani is working with PricewaterhouseCoopers who will be this year's host for the Consultants' Roundtable.

A group of PhD students is proposing to gather in Bergen a day before the conference for a PhD Colloquium to discuss PhD research proposals with senior researchers in the field. The PhD Student Colloquium will meet on Sunday, August 6 and is organized by members Özge Pala, Etienne Rouwette and Burak Güneralp. 

The social program includes an informal gathering on Sunday night, the welcome reception at the Bergen Castle Monday night, hosted by the City of Bergen, and on Wednesday night, a concert at the home of Edvard Grieg and the conference banquet at the Flöyen Restaurant, overlooking the city of Bergen.

It has been stressed by the conference chair, Professor Pċl I. Davidsen, that it will be very important for participants to make their hotel reservations as early as possible due to the large number of tourists visiting Bergen in August and the limited availability of hotels in the city center. 

Our thanks to the Conference Sponsors:
