The workshop will take two full days in the Ethnographic Exploratory at the CSS, the University of Copenhagen (map: https://goo.gl/maps/AfB6SUoLwjKY46aN8). The Campus is located in the center of the city, a ten-minute walk from Nørreport station.

 

Accessibility

The University of Copenhagen is committed to ensuring that the Digitally Engaged Patient seminar is accessible to everyone. If you have any accessibility or accommodation needs for attending the conference and/or for presenting, please remember to inform us upon sign up.

 

Hotel

The conference participants have to book their own hotel room in the Copenhagen area. Below are some suggestions in different prize categories, which are all within walking distance from the UCPH Campus where the conference is located.

 

The participants are adviced to book rooms as soon as possible.

 

Richmond Hotel

Prices around 1000 DKK per night. Close to the city center and Copenhagen Central Station. 15 min. walk from the conference location. 

 

Wakeup Copenhagen, Borgergade

Prices below 1000 DKK per night. In the City Center, close to Nyhavn and the Royal Palace. 15-20 min walk from the conference location. A bit noisy, on the lower floors.

 

Cabin, Metro

Prices from 499 DKK per night. Outside the city center, but within walking distance from the Metro line, which takes you to the city center within 10 min. A nice alternative to the more expensive hotels in the city. An alternative location is The Cabin Scandinavia hotel on Frederiksberg, 1,6 KM from the conference site.

 

Transport

Public transport

In Copenhagen the public transport is mostly by bus or metro. Please refer to this guide made by Visit Copenhagen for further information.

 

Bike or kick-scooters

Most hotels have bikes for rent, also a new trend in Copenhagen is kick-scooters. Remember that biking in Copenhagen can be quite a challenge, and it is very important that you just take a look at this quickguide on how to bike in Copenhagen, before you go. The kick-scooters are available random places in the city. You need an app to book and buy time on the kick-scooter, the information is written on the front of the kick-scooter. You are allowed to use the kick-scooter in the bike-lane.

 

Walking

Most things in the city center are within walking distance, and so is the conference site. So if you enjoy walking, this is by far the safest and cheapest way to get around.

Activities

The workshop will start in the morning on September 19 with the opening keynote talks by Janelle Taylor and Annette Leibing which you won’t want to miss! The workshop will end with a farewell reception in the late afternoon on the 20th of September, which we would like to invite you all to.

 

And, if you arrive the day before and are interested, there will also be a walking seminar during the afternoon (the time and venue will be announced later). It is not part of the workshop program, but all of us are invited to join to get to know others, be inspired by other people and things, while taking a nice walk in Copenhagen.
