The Conference Venue

Aula Magna, the venue chosen for As2016, is located at the center of Stockholm University’s campus at Frescati adjacent to the KTH Royal Institute of Technology’s Vallhallavägen Campus.
Fringed by the Lill-Jansskogen forest, Aula Magna was designed by architect Ralph Erskine and inaugurated in 1997. This spectacular hall lets the special Scandinavian light reflect off its light wooden surfaces, creating a bright and spacious atmosphere.

With a complete seating capacity of 1100, Aula Magna is the venue for As2016’s opening, closing, and plenary sessions. In addition, there are rooms for two parallel sessions (more than 250 persons each), two rooms for other side events including the ISGSD Business Meeting, and an open lobby for registration, poster sessions and coffee breaks. The rooms for the presentations will be equipped with audio-visual facilities, 
including free Wi-Fi connection.
