Accomodation in Öregrund

There are five hotels and hostels in Öregrund, where rooms have been pre-booked for the conference. The document below contains information and links to the various options (in English), as well as the reference to be stated when booking. It is also included a map showing how the different accommodation is in relation to the conference rooms and the restaurants where we will have lunch and dinner.

* We would like to inform you that the conference will be shortened with one day. The conference will start at lunch on the 12th and end in the afternoon on the 13th of November. As a consequence of this the registration fee has also been reduced accordingly, to 1500 kr as a normal fee and 1200 kr for PhD students. These reduced fees will be on your invoice. We hope that you still would like to join us for two fruitful conference days but would anyway like to give you the option to cancel your registration due to the changed schedule.

Everyone that has registered an abstract for a presentation will get to hold an oral presentation.
