Future proof IV - Informació Pràctica

4th International Scientific Archives Conference organized by CASE and SAC

Conference information from Karl Grandin.

The conference is organised by CASE and local organisers are the Center for History of Science at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. The conference is sponsored by DHST of the IUHPS and the Center at the RSAS.

Some practical information
Most of you will fly to Stockholm Arlanda Airport north of Stockholm. From there you may take buses, train or a taxi into Stockholm. If you fly with Ryanair you will have a longer journey (by bus) from either of the two airports into Stockholm.

All proceedings except the excursions and conference dinner will take place at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Directions are at:

The conference fee will include a prepaid ticket slip that will allow you to go from the conference hotel to the Academy and return. By underground (T) one change – 20 minutes. Public transportation is the quickest way.

There will be a conference fee of 900 SEK, which entitles you to attend the whole conference as well as including lunches, reception, conference dinner, coffee breaks as well as two excursions.

The conference hotel is Columbus hotel, which is situated in a very nice building from 1780. There is no disturbing traffic but still close to public transportation as well as close to bars, restaurants for those inclined. At Columbus hotel you can stay either in a regular hotel room or in the annexe (same building – third floor). The difference is that the hotel rooms have private baths, whereas the annexe rooms have their toilets and showers in the corridor. Both have Internet, TV, films and comfortable beds. Also a substantial breakfast buffet is included in the price in both the hotel and the annexe. Note that there is no elevator so if you cannot climb one or two stairs ask for a room at ground floor (not possible with the annexe). The deal with the hotel is the following: you get a reduction of the price the third and fourth night of your stay, for this there is no deadline. However there is a limited number of rooms so you are recommended to book early.

Annexe room (shared toilet and shower) if you stay three nights they knock off 150 SEK, if you stay four nights they knock off 200 SEK of the total price.

Single room   725 SEK
Double room 925 SEK

Hotel room (private bathroom) if you stay three nights they knock off 300 SEK, if you stay four nights they knock off 400 SEK of the total price.

Single room   weekdays 1250 SEK, weekends 950–1250 SEK
Double room weekdays 1550 SEK, weekends 1250–1550 SEK
