General information

The official language of the conference is English.


The currency in Denmark is Danish Kroner (DKK). One krone is divided into 100 øre. 100 DKK is approximately 13 Euro.

Denmark, like most other European countries, has 220-volt AC, 50Hz current and uses two-pin continental plugs. If you visit from the UK and Ireland, you will need an adaptor for electric appliances, whereas North Americans need a transformer to use their 110/125V appliances.

Passport and Visa
All conference delegates traveling to Denmark must present a passport (or approved identity card for EU citizens) and many countries require a visa to enter the country. Delegates are encouraged to apply for visa early and ensure all requested documentation is submitted with the application.

People holding an EU residence card issued under the EU regulations on free movement issued by a Schengen country do not need a visa.

For more information on visa we refer to webpage ‘Visa Application’ on this website.

All participants, accompanying persons and exhibitors must wear the conference identification badge. Entrance to meeting halls, poster and exhibition area will not be permitted to any person without a badge.

The organisation reserves the right to alter or cancel without notice parts of the conference due to reasons beyond its control. This includes packages, programming, as well as other activities directly or indirectly related to the conference. The Organising Committee and the conference management cannot be held liable for the loss, damage, expenditure or inconvenience caused by such changes or cancellations.

Neither the organisers, nor the venue at Aarhus University, take any responsibility for injury or damage involving persons or property during the conference. Participants are advised to take out their own health and travel insurance.

Banks are open from 09:30 to 16:00 on weekdays with late hours until 18:00 on Thursdays (closed Saturdays and Sundays). There are numerous cash machines throughout the city. Furthermore, you can find money transfer offices on several locations, for example Forex at Banegaardspladsen.

Danish language
The mother tongue in Aarhus is Danish, which is closely related to both Swedish and Norwegian. In general Danes speak English extremely well, and some even German and French.

Time zone

Denmark follows Central European Time (CET) which is one hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and six hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time (EST).

Tipping is greatly appreciated, but not expected, and you should only do so if you feel you are getting exceptionally good service. If you do so 10 percent of the bill is sufficient.

It is very easy and safe to travel around the city by bus, train or tram. You can buy tickets at almost every station or at the kiosk. You can also purchase your tickets directly in the bus. Tickets can be used regardless of the form of transportation.
