Practical Information

Getting to Stockholm
There are two international airports in Stockholm. Arlanda (ARN) is the larger international airport. You can get to the city from Arlanda by taxi (stand outside arrivals terminal), bus (https://www.flygbussarna.se), shared taxi (https://doortogate.se) or by a 20-minute trip on the express train, the Arlanda Express (https://www.arlandaexpress.se). Bromma (BMA) is a smaller airport flying to a number of Swedish, and a few European, destinations. Transport from the city to Bromma is via taxi or bus (sl.se, https://www.flygbussarna.se).

Accommodation
The standard for accommodation in Sweden is generally high. There is a range of budget to luxury options and we suggest using an online search tool or a booking agency to find your accommodation. Please do book early as the conference coincides with the start of vacation and the tourist season.

Conference Venue
The conference will be held at Stockholm University at the Frescati campus. There are several ways to the university. You can take the red line on the subway (T-bana in Swedish) to the Universitetet stop (ca 8 min from the Central Station). It is also possible to take Bus 50 or 540 to the stop Universitet Norra or the commuter train (Roslagsbanan) to the stop Universitetet. A public transport travel planner for Stockholm is available in English from SL (https://sl.se/en/). Here you will also find information on travel cards, which is the best option if you plan to use public transport during your stay. These can be bought at the SL Center at the Central Station or at most convenience stores. It is also possible to rent bikes to get around the city (http://www.citybikes.se/home).

Plenary sessions will take place in Aula Magna (right auditorium). Parallel sessions will be held at both Aula Magna and the Geohus, which is located just across the lawn. Pre-conference courses and poster sessions will be held at the Geohus.

The conference dinner will be held at the Restaurant Lantis which is located behind Aula Magna.
