Important information about self-defence protocols:

Should you get into trouble it is important to keep this in mind Norwegian Criminal Law Chapter 3, § 48 "self-defense clause" reads (not literal)

It is only self-defence when an otherwise criminal act undertaken to prevent or defend against an unlawful attack, provided that the action does not exceed the original attack strength or nature with respect to hazards. No one may be punished for an action that is taken in self-defence, even if it is done in favour of averting an unlawful attack or apprehend a criminal.

Put another way everyone has the right to defend themselves or to stop someone who commits a criminal act, but one should not use more force than is necessary to prevent an attack.

The convention has an age limit, requiring you to be 18 years of age at, or before, the first day of the convention. This is to make sure everyone is permitted to drink (Responsibly!). If you become overly drunk, you will be asked to withdraw to bed. (This is something that will be decided upon by security personel. All decisions are final and non-arguable). Keep in mind, you will be sharing space with others; respect others needs and limits.
