Program and Facilities
The different parts of the conference such as workshops, keynote and lunch takes place at the university in fairly close proximity from each other. Nevertheless, it is probably useful for you to be able to navigate around the university.
Finding your way at the university
The university campus hosts several different buildings and these are the basic units for navigating to a particular room, corridor or lecture hall. Each room is numbered with reference to building and floor so for instance, room 11B242 corresponds to building 11B floor 2 and room 42. Some of the larger lecture halls and rooms also have names, such as Andersalen or Frödingsalen.

Most of the activities on the conference program takes place in close proximity to a part of the university called Transformum. This is centrally located at campus and easy to find and access from the main entrance. In Transformum we will host all meals and coffee breaks and also set up a square where book publishers and research centers can show some of their products and activities. In addition, this is also where the annual meeting of the Swedish Political Science Association takes place during lunch on October 5. The keynote adress and the panel discussion are both held in a lecture hall (Lagerlöfsalen) that is located right next to Transformum and to the best of our ability we have also booked rooms for the workshops close to the rest of the activities.
