The CHESS Annual Meeting 2020 will be online!

Considering the given the current situation with the pandemic together with its highly uncertain development, the CHESS Steering Group decided that it is the most responsible and reasonable decision to not conduct the meeting on Hurtigruten at this stage. As CHESS already had a financial commitment with Hurtigruten, we were able to postpone the CHESS AM on Hurtigruten to 2022, when the situation with the pandemic has hopefully significantly improved.

Given the enormous value of the CHESS Annual Meeting for networking, feedback, and interaction among its members, the CHESS SG decided that this year’s Annual Meeting will be conducted online. The meeting will start with lunch on Monday 28th September and will end with lunch on Wednesday 30th September. We are in the process of developing the program and sorting logistic arrangement that will include our regular science program as well as new ways to network and engage via online platforms. We will inform participants when more details are available.

For those who would like to join the online meeting, but have not previously signed up for the CHESS Annual Meeting, please register (and submit abstract if you are PhD) using the following link:

The registration deadline is 1 September.

For those who have registered but would like to withdraw their registration, please inform us before 1 September.

We will organize local hubs in Bergen, Oslo, Tromsø, and Longyearbyen, where participants can gather physically to attend the meeting and to network. Naturally, lunch and coffee breaks will be provided in each hub. We will share more information and registration for these logistic arrangements in the coming weeks.

Looking forward to see many of your faces (on screen or physical) in the upcoming CHESS Annual Meeting!
