In addition to our many research management related sessions, we have also planned an exciting social programme for you at this year's Conference. The idea is to do things together, have fun and put our heads elsewhere for a while!
If you successfully registered for a social activity, you should by Tuesday May 2 receive an email with all information about your social event. If you haven´t received an email by then, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Harbour Sauna bath on Wednesday May 4, from 13:00 - 15:00 still have available slots! To book your slot, please email email@example.com.
Can you stand still for several minutes? Then you should participate in the European Championship of Standstill! In this competition, we use a high-speed motion capture system to collect movement data of participants standing still for 6 minutes with and without music. It is part of research on music-related body motion at the University of Oslo where we aim to understand more about how music influences human body motion. This is an ongoing activity, and you can read more about it here.
During the Conference, there will be an open access escape room. In this interactive adventure game players will team up to solve a range of puzzles in order to defeat a villain who has locked away all the research at EARMA.
The Open Access themed escape room requires booking due to limited spaces on each slot. You can register your interest via this Google Form. The escape room will take around 45 minutes in total to complete (or less if your team is really keen on defeating the villain who has locked away the research!). If you have any questions about the Open Access Escape Room please email firstname.lastname@example.org
This is an ongoing activity throughout the Conference. You can read more about it here.
After two years of online events, we are looking forward to finally meeting everyone again in-person. Therefore, this year we are for the first time facilitating an afterparty during the Conference.
The afterparty is on Wednesday May 4 from 19:30-02:00 CET, after the networking reception at Oslo City Hall. For this party, we will privatise two bars that are located right next to each other; "Williamsburg" and "Brødrene Bergh". At Williamsburg we will have a DJ and at Brødrene Bergh we will have a live jazz band.

Entrance at the afterparty is free and only allowed with the Conference badge - so remember to register and collect your badge at the Conference centre beforehand! If you, for some reason, have no possibility to get your badge before the networking dinner and afterparty, we ask that you bring other proof that you are registered for the Conference.
People will pay for their own food and drinks, but everyone with the badge will get a 10% discount on everything they purchase.
In addition, we have also secured a special 10% discount at the below bars from Tuesday May 3 to Saturday May 7. If you want a table at any of the places on any of the days, you should email the bar and mention EARMA to make sure it is not too full when you arrive.
EARMA wants everyone to have a safe conference. In that regard, you can read about how the Norwegian Government has removed many of the COVID-19 measures here.
