THE VENUE The conference will take place in the City of Mariestad at the Department of Conservation, School Building (seen in the above image) at the following adress: Magasinsgatan 4, 54230. We will also use several locations near the school for our activities such as the campus workshops, gardens and the old city theatre where the keynotes will be presented.

How to get here If you come from abroad you can chose to fly to either Stockholm or Gothenburg airport and then take a train or bus to Mariestad city. It takes about 3h to get to Mariestad from Gothenburg and about 4h from Stockholm. There are many fast trains that pass the City of Skövde, from which there are connecting busses to Mariestad. The buss from Skövde to Mariestad takes 40-50min.
