Same procedure as last year, miss Sophie?
Not quite, but more or less. If you have participated in ASPC before, you will recognize this year's event.
New this year
As ASPC keeps evolving, we have made a change to the saturday agenda that will provide some well-deserved rest for the competitors. The traditional surprise event is cancelled, instead you'll just have some free time before the evening banquet. If you'd like to sleep, take a walk, or try out the cross-country skiing possibilities of the hotel surroundings, it's all up to you. We also include an extra night at the hotel. This means that there is no need to check-out before Sunday morning. There is no official agenda on Sunday, just an opportunity for you to sleep a little longer, and get home in your own time. This ALSO means there will be NO bus to Oslo city centre on Saturday evening.
Jury & SpeakersAll jury members have not been confirmed yet, but here are the ones that are.
