At the page of registration, you will find informations about these opportunities and instructions on how to use to the booking system. When you are registered in the system, you might later adjust your choices if you want. You can also receive money back, if you should be hindered from coming.

For those of you who will need a letter of invitation for your visa application: First you register your participation at the conference in our booking system and pay the fee. Then you send us an email at and ask us for an invitation letter. We will then send it to you.

In the conference we will invite some of our DMI workers from developing countries. They are not able to pay for the participation themselves. Therefore, your registration fee includes a support fee to the participations from these countries. Thanks for your support and kind understanding.

Norway In A Nutshell (June 16th – 19th)
After the 7th International DMI Conference is finished, we will offer you a full weekend with Norwegian cultural activities in a mountain area. From Friday, June 16th to Monday June 19th, we are arranging a weekend called “Norway In A Nutshell”. In cooperation with Ål Folkehøyskole, we offer participants at the conference an opportunity to get to know each other better and to experience more of the Norwegian culture.
Some things that’s important to know:
– Monday morning, June 19th, we will bring you back to Oslo, first to Oslo Airport Gardermoen. We will arrive the airport before noon (12:00). Then the bus will continue to the downtown city of Oslo. It will therefore be smart to book your return flight after 14:00 the 19th of June.
– The price for this weekend is very fair. Included the bus travels to Ål, both ways, + accommodation and all meals for 3 days, it costs in total NOK 1.250.
– You can register for the weekend and pay for it at the page here.

If there are any questions, please do feel free to ask them at our contact page.
