Luxurious ERF 2023 Gala Dinner, served by Michelin accredited Master Chef Thomas Pasfall.

Getting to campus

The tram leaves directly from Odeon in direction “Hjallelse”. 18 min later you get off at “SDU CAMPUS”, and then you are right in front of the university main entrance. Your conference badge is a valid Tram ticket for the ride to SDU and back.

Wear your conference badge at all times

Your conference badge is your gala dinner ticket. Therefore, please wear it to the gala dinner.

Please be on time

You may participate in visits to SDU Robotics, and the Award ceremony, or you may arrive in time for the Gala Dinner. Regardless, please make sure that your conference badge is scanned, and that you are wearing a Gala Dinner wristband on your left arm, no later than 19:15. The reason is, that the Gala dinner is fully booked, and more than 100 of your good friends did not get a seat, thus they are on the waiting list.

As a curtesy to them and for sustainability reasons, all 490 seats will be occupied. For a smooth transmission, we will distribute unclaimed seats between 19:15-19:30.

We appreciate your understanding, and on behalf of your fellow roboticists, we thank you for complying with this.
