August is on the tail-end of summer, and the weather should still be nice. But this being Denmark, you can expect wind and rain throughout the year (so pack accordingly!). While hopefully there will be a sunny day to enjoy the waterfront during the conference, just as likely it might be cold and cloudy.

Aalborg has its own airport, located about 6km north of the city. It has plenty of direct connections to Copenhagen, London, Amsterdam, and Oslo.
A taxi from the airport to the city center should cost around 100dkk. However, taking one of the frequently running busses directly to the city center is much cheaper at around 22dkk.
