Getting from the airport to Stockholm City, there is a fast train – Arlanda Express – the airport coaches Flygbussarna – and taxis. Make sure to ask for the rate in advance when it comes to the latter as we have a wide-spread problem with insincere taxi drivers. Whenever you take a taxi in Stockholm, make sure to choose one of the regular companies, such as Taxi Stockholm or Taxi Kurir.
The conference takes place at Stockholm University, which has its own metro stop (“Universitetet”) four stops from the Central Station (“T-Centralen”). Taking the red line northbound to Mörby Centrum, the journey takes about 10 minutes.
You can also get to the university by taking bus numbers 40, 70, 540 and 670 to the University (get off at “Universitetet norra” for the main campus). Tickets must be bought before travel.
Tickets for public transport can be bought from newsagents as well as from SL (Stockholms lokaltrafik) ticket offices. See SL’s website for more information. http://sl.se/en/ – Storstockholms Lokaltrafik AB, (Stockholm Public Transport), commonly referred to as SL, is the organization running all of the land-based public transport systems in Stockholm County. Their website has information regarding fares and tickets; tips for getting around, and a travel planner where you can plan your trip.
Stockholm is very popular in June so we recommend that you book your hotels as soon as possible. Below is a list of hotels in an area just a few metro stops from the university campus. Other convenient locations are those along the “red line” of the underground, for example around Slussen, Gamla Stan or Central Station.
