ISHPSSB is family friendly and welcomes children at its conferences. We therefore welcome children as part of the audience during the 2019 conference in Oslo. The whole city is also rather children-friendly and kids are literally enjoying all aspects of life with their families. Breastfeeding in public is a well-established norm despite some recent discussion. The organizers will also provide a dedicated room for taking care of children’s needs.
For those who wish to contact local childcare services, the following can be contacted. Participants are advised that July is the high holiday season in Norway, so contact with the childcare services should be made well in advance of the conference in order to ensure staff availability. The conference organizers are not endorsing or taking responsibility for the childcare providers.

The conference venues at the University of Oslo offer accessible routes in and throughout and are located within short distance from public transportation (tram and metro), which is also wheelchair accessible. The main conference buildings are located within less than 2 minutes walking distance from each other. The routes between these buildings are wheelchair accessible with ramps and lifts. An onsite walkthrough will ensure the suggestion of the best and shortest routes. The spaces of The Norwegian Museum of Science and Technology are fully accessible, while public transportation (train or tram) arrives just 5' minutes away from the Museum. If necessary, the Local Organizing Committee will ensure transfer by hired adapted and wheelchair accessible vehicles. The Museum welcomes individual visitors and groups with disabilities daily and all participants will be able to enjoy all areas and facilities.
