Join us on the evening of Sunday 11, after the tutorial, for an icebreaker cocktail at the Polaria musem. Polaria is reachable just in few minutes by walking from the conference hotel. This is a great chance to meet the other participants before the start of the conference and to explore Tromsø city center.


About Polaria

Housed in a very distinctive building that represents ice floes that have been pressed up on land by the rough seas of the Arctic, you will discover Polaria, just five minutes walk from the centre of Tromsø. Polaria has an Arctic aquarium, interesting knowledge-based exhibits, a panoramic cinema, and a gift and souvenir shop. In our panoramic cinema, you can look forward to the Ivo Caprino film "Svalbard - Arctic Wilderness"and the Ole C. Salomonsen production "Northern Lights in Arctic Norway".
