How to travel within Uppsala

Public transport

The closest bus stop to the venue is “Akademiska sjukhuset västra”, but “Blåsenhus” and “Akademiska sjukhuset södra” is also quite close. Which bus stop that is more convenient depends on which hotel you will be staying at, and hence which bus you will take. As long as you are staying in Uppsala you only have to travel within Zone 1.

Please note that the public transport does not accept cash, you need a credit card or you can download an app if you have a smart phone. You can read more about it here: How to buy a bus ticket.länk till annan webbplats, öppnas i nytt fönster

Lunches

There are no organized lunches, but there are several university canteens (Segerstedt, Feiroz) and restaurants (Hotel von Kraemer and Johanna & mat) on von Kraemers allé, close to the conference venue. A one-course canteen lunch costs about 90 SEK, and at the restaurants about 130 SEK.

The weather in Uppsala in June

The temperature can vary between 10 and 20 degrees in early June. If we are lucky, there will be sunshine, but be prepared for rain as well. The sun rises early, so bring eye masks if you have difficulties sleeping in light.
