Covid-19 update for Norwegian residents:

COVID-19 certificate

According to current regulations from FHI, 500 people can attend a conference in the same cohort if we require a Covid-19 certificate upon registration.

This is an electronic certificate, and easy to check (it lights up green if it is valid).

There are 3 ways to get green:

  1. 2 out of 2 vaccine doses give green one week after full vaccination
  2. 1 in 2 vaccine doses gives green 3 weeks after the first dose
  3. Negative test 24 hours before or have had corona (Covid-19)

See detailed rules here:

N.B. These are the rules that apply now. We will follow FHI's guidelines continuously and update the website in the event of changes.


Welcome to Ålesund

On behalf of the Organizing Committee we cordially invite you to attend the 38th Scandinavian Congress of Rheumatology to be held in Ålesund, Norway.

The conference venue is Scandic Parken Hotel in the middle of Ålesund City Centre.

Vaccination is underway in the Nordic countries, and the most vulnerable groups and health personnel will hopefully be vaccinated before the summer. Based on this, we still believe it is realistic to plan for a physical congress, and meet in Ålesund, 1-4 September 2021.
For participants who are not able to travel in September due to infection control rules, we will facilitate digital participation.
