Reception, Tuesday 16 May, 19:00 - 21:00 at Docken

DOCKEN is placed right on the Oresund harbour front and yet centrally located in Copenhagen’s new development area and with a magnificent view to the sea. The evening will start with a welcome drink followed by a buffet with wine and beer.

Busses marked “IPAC’17 Conference Reception” will be provided directly at the end of the poster session on that day from Bella Center. The venue is not easily reachable by public transport, therefore, please have your companion come to Bella Center to make use of the offered bus service. Shuttle bus service back to Bella Center (incl. a stop in the city center at Copenhagen Central for guests staying in the city) will be arranged at the end of the reception at 21:00.

Price: included in the delegate and companion fee
What to wear: A light coat and comfortable shoes might be useful (there is a beach area behind the venue)
