Welcome to Stockholm and Sweden!

Below find some useful links regarding your stay during the conference:

Airport Transportation:

There are several options for transfer between Arlanda Airport and Stockholm City.
If you opt for a taxi during your stay, or for your transfer, choose one of the following companies to
avoid over-charges: Taxi Stockholm, Taxi Kurir or Taxi 020.
More information can be found at the Arlanda Airport website:

Stockholm Public Transport:

Stockholm has an extended network of public transport. Subway (Metro), buses and regional
trains serve the city during most hours of the day.
Please note that cash or credit card payments are not possible onboard any busses or trains. You
will need to buy your ticket prior to your trip in a ticket machine or station kiosk. Some stores (e.g.
"SL Center", "Pressbyrån" and "7eleven") and Arlanda Airport sell passes. The best option if you
plan to use public transportation is to buy a 72 hours card. More information about tickets, fares and
departure times can be found on the SL website: www.sl.se/en/

Conference Venue:

The CSSCM is held at Stockholm University Campus in the Magneli Hall, Arrhenius Laboratory. The
Campus is easily reachable by subway or busses from the city center. The subway station
"Universitetet" and is served by the red line northbound from the city center. From the subway
station, you can reach the Magneli Hall in a few minutes, see map:

Attending the CSSCM:

The CSSCM is open for interested PhD students, postdocs, and faculty members free of charge. A
limited number of seats are available. Please send an email, including your full name and affiliation,
to CSSCM2019@organ.su.se if you want to attend. Coffee is served to all attendees during the
Wi-Fi codes are available to speakers upon request.
