On Saturday our official program started with a lunch at Fram Senter, before Rasmus held his lecture on transports through the Arctic, both in form of ships and data traffic. This section was followed by a lecture of Michael on innovative data presentation on posters, presentations and in publication, and another round of student (poster) presentation. This lead to very good discussions among the PhD students, almost too good as the pizza started to get cold when we finally finished. Few hours later we left Tromsø with the Coastal Steamer “Vesterålen” and headed south towards Svolvær, where we will arrive on Sunday evening. Some of the participants made a very wise decision, and went to bed, while others mingled in the bar, and had a liquid “breakfast” already at 3 a.m. in the morning.
