The Uppsala castle
The conference will be held at the Mathematics and Information Technology Center (MIC) campus of Uppsala universitet (the oldest university in Scandinavia, founded 1477). The MIC campus is a former military base with beautiful buildings from the beginning of the century, which has been transformed to become the center of Information Technology of Uppsala University. The campus houses approximately 100 senior faculty and 1.300 undergraduate students.

Hammarby, Linné's
Uppsala, with about 200.000 inhabitants, is situated 66 km (40 miles) north of Stockholm (the capitol of Sweden) and 40 km north of the Stockholm-Arlanda Airport. A bus service is available to take you from the airport to Uppsala. The conference site is within walking distance (about 15-25 minutes) from the city center, where most hotels (detailed information availiable) are located. City buses run all day between the hotels and the conference site. Hourly trains go to/from Stockholm daily.

The weather in Uppsala is usually sunny and warm in June (about 20 C, 69F). However, since cooler days and rain showers are not uncommon during the Swedish summer, a sweater and a raincoat can be useful items to pack along.
