Practical information

The meeting will take place on the Umeå University campus, KBC building, room KBJ302. The building is indicated with a fat red arrow in this map. The overall Umeå University campus map and travel instructions can be found here (KBC building is nr. 22 in that map).

Getting to the venue is a 25 minute walk from downtown where the hotels are, or a matter of taking bus 2,5 or 8 to Växthuset. Buses accept credit cards but not cash. Main entrance with signage to the KBC building is on the west side.

Airport is a short bus or taxi ride away from both central Umeå with hotels and the University. It is also possible to do as a long walk (4-5 km). Taxis offer fixed prices which should be around 200-250 SEK, payable by credit card. At the airport unbooked taxis occupy the lane furthest away from the exit.

Leaving to the airport (getting on the bus or in the taxi) one hour before departure should be sufficient, 45 minutes if you are not checking any bags.

Trains stop at either Umeå Central at the city center or by Umeå Östra next to the hospital and university campus, same applies to long distance buses.

Coffee, buns and fruits will be served in breaks, while lunches are on participants' own expence in any of the campus' canteens or cafeteria.
