Postponed trial lecture and defence

Due to the volcanic cloud blocking flights in Northern Europe, both the trial lecture and public defence for Bjørn Enge Bertelsens has, unfortunately, been postponed.

Dear all,

Due to the volcanic cloud blocking flights in Northern Europe, both the trial lecture and public defence has, unfortunately, been postponed as the opponents have not yet made it to Bergen. However, plans have been made for having at least one -- possibly two -- of the opponents arriving in Bergen within the next 36 hours or so.

If they make it to Bergen, as we plan for, this means that we postpone trial lecture, defence and party to Saturday 17 April:

The trial lecture will then be held at 10.15 at U.Pihl. This will be followed by the public defence with the first opponent starting at 11.15 and with a break for lunch at approximately 13.00. The second part of the defence will commence at around 14.15.

The dinner party will be held in the same location as previously noted and will start at 19.00 -- also on Saturday.

We sincerely hope that all have the possibility to join Bjørn Enge Bertelsen in celebrating even if this is one day after previously announced and planned for. If this is difficult and you know you cannot make it, however, please send an email concerning this to annesynnovenilsen@gmail.com .
