Internet Access:

We have the eduroam network here at UNIS so those of you who have that set up will have automatic access here.

For those of you who do not use eduroam we will arrange for an account to be set up while you are at the meeting so you can have internet access. We also have some desktop machines which your account will work on.

If you require an account to be set up for you please send an e-mail to me (lisab@unis.no) with the subject line: SuperDARN internet access
In the e-mail I just need your full name.
Please do this by 15th May.

Look forward to seeing everyone in May
