Practical Matter

Technical stuff

There are power supplies at the conference room and wireless LAN will be available. The log-in code will be provided at the conference. You can use either eduroam, the uio net for students and employees (if you’re eligible), or the conference network.

Since all participants have to use the same wireless port it is kindly asked that in case the speaker needs to have access to the internet for her/his presentation that the other participants try to keep their traffic low. Thanks!

For presentations there will be a Windows-run laptop available and a beamer. You can bring your own machine, most common adapters will be provided (except for MacBook Air). As the in-house adapters seem to have disappeared, there is only a simple VGA-connector available. If you bring your MacBook, MB Air, Vaio etc. please don’t forget a matching adapter!

Food and beverages

There will be coffee, tea and light refreshments served as well as a light lunch (on Friday June 14) and summerly cake and fruit (on Saturday June 15) for those who have registered for the seminar. Please register if you want to join us!

Venue: Entering and leaving the building on Saturday June 15

Usually, the university’s buildings are closed for public on the weekends. If you want to enter the building on Saturday you will need to have a student or employee’s card for the institute (ILOS). Since this is not the case with all our participants, there will be a student assistant at the main entrance door who will let you in and out at the beginning and end of the conference and during the coffee breaks. All ILOS-emloyees and students who attend the seminar on Saturday are kindly asked to accommodate their fellow participants as well.

Level of Formality and Tone of the Seminar

Besides being an official (conference-like) PhD seminar at the University of Oslo we encourage a lively, open and friendly – and more or less informal – atmosphere of egality. In our experience this not only helps and stimulates discussion and interaction between speakers and the audience but also is one of the very positive characteristics of digital humanities in practice. You should feel free to ask anything and approach anyone, regardless of your experience, expertise, level of education or age.
