Welcome to the CHESS Annual Meeting 2021!

June 7, 2021 @ 10:00 – June 9, 2021 @ 13:30


The meeting combines online meeting tool ZOOM and social gathering platform GATHER to give participants new experience in virtual conferencing. We also have local gatherings at regional hubs in Bergen, Oslo, Tromsø and Longyearbyen for local participants to meet physically for networking.

Location of regional hubs:

Bergen – Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Dreggsallmenningen 1, Bryggen, Bergen (Please read the hotel safety protocol here)
Oslo – Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, Holbergsgate 30, Oslo
Tromsø – Clarion Hotel The Edge, Kaigata 6, Tromsø
Longyearbyen – Meeting room Hornsund, The University Centre in Svalbard


Gather is a video chat platform that has avatars move around (using the arrows keys) a map. As you get close to other avatars, your videos will pop up and you will be able to chat, thus allowing spontaneous conversations with those around you. These can be either one-on-one or small groups depending on how many people are around your avatar. We encourage all participants to try a live walkthrough before the meeting at https://gather.town/ .
