Summer School Practicalities (Sweden)

The draft schedule for the second week of the summer school in Stockholm is now available.

Preparation “Pecha Kucha”

Pecha Kucha is a presentation style in which the slides are automated and each slide will be shown 20 seconds, before it switches to the next. We would like you to prepare a Pecha Kucha presentation, using the template, and submit it to Jan Gulliksen before August 17th [gulliksen(at)kth.se]. The slides should contain:

  • Slide 1: Who are you?
  • Slide 2-4: What is your research question, problems, ambitions?
  • Slide 5: How do you want to be cited in the future?
  • Slide 6: Something that we didn’t know about you…

In case you kept your name tags from Dublin, please take them with you to Stockholm. Otherwise we can give you a new one.

We suggest to arrive on Sunday for the opening on Monday at 9:00 and leave Saturday. The last session ends on Friday at 16:30. Stockholm has three airports

Accommodation

We have pre-booked rooms for everybody at a low rate at Stiftelsen Drottning Victorias Örlogshem:

  • Single: 800 SEK (~82 €)
  • Double: 1200 SEK (~123 €)

Breakfast and WiFi included. Registration information for accommodation will be sent shortly. If you have any questions or requests in this regard, please contact Sandhya Hagelin: sanh[at]kth.se

Örlogshemmet is found at Teatergatan 3. A small street right between the Grand Hotel and Radisson/Strand Hotel. A quiet street a bit on the side of the busy city area yet in the middle of town. From central station, it is easy to reach by foot:

KTH Royal Institute of Technology

All activities – except Tuesday – will take place at the main campus of KTH Royal Institute of Technology in the Visualization Studio. From your accommodation at Örlogshem it is a 2 km walk.

It is also possible to take the subway (blue line, 14 – Mörby Centrum) from Östermalmstorg to Tekniska Högskolan. However – as this trip is only two stops, it might be wiser (and healthier) to walk. 🙂

The Visualization Studio is located at Lindstedtsvägen 5, floor 4, room nr 4453.

Uppsala

We wil meet up at the Central railway station to catch the SJ Regional train on Tuesday at 7.41 from track 3. (If you miss the train, it runs at least every half an hour at x.11 and x.41). Jonas Moll and Christiane Grünloh will be there, too. The train arrives in Uppsala at 8.2o track 4 (Uppsala C), which is also the final stop.

From the central station in Uppsala, you can easily walk to the University:
