2018 FLOW/INTERFACE Autumn School in Rheology

For basic information about the School, please see the brochure here (pdf 443 kB)

The lectures will be given in the KTH main campus in the seminar room Faxén (2nd floor), Fluid Physics Lab., Teknikringen 8 (see this map  which is for Vehicle Engineering Department, which is in the same building). Signs on the doors will guide you towards the seminar room.

Regarding the accommodation for course participants, one can choose a hotel ( sv.hotels.com/ ) which is not too far and not too expensive. In the same time the subway system in Stockholm works perfect and you can reach the campus within 30 minutes from any place in the city. Please see the link below on how to reach the KTH campus:

The School dinner will be held on Wednesday 24th (at 19) in Beirut Café, Engelbrektsgatan 37.
Please indicate your attendance on the dinner by e-mail by Monday 22nd at the latest.
