In 2021 ICDS will be hosted by the University of Oslo, Norway. However, with the current situation the conference will be held as an online event. Although we had hoped for a hybrid event where physical participation would be possible, the uncertainty in travel regulations makes this difficult, and we have therefore decided to make ICDS31 a fully online event.

The city of Oslo
Oslo is the capital of Norway with about 600.000 inhabitants. Oslo is a relatively small city on the international scale, with a small and easily accessible city center. At the same time, it has the international and multicultural mark of a big city. Large areas of the harbor region has recently been developed with museums and public buildings, making Oslo a very attractive city for visitors. July is a very suitable month for hosting a conference in Oslo, with long nights and relatively good weather. The air temperature in July is about 20 C and with daylight until late night. The conference site/University campus is conveniently located close to the city center.
