Weather

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.
