Swedish e-Science Academy, 11–12 October 2023

Come and meet colleagues in e-Science from all over Sweden and take part in interesting talks and discussions. This year’s academy is held in Uppsala on two different locations: the university main building and the Ångström laboratory.

New for this year’s edition of the academy is that we are supporting associated workshops. Read more about the workshops further down on this page.

Accomodation: There are 50 rooms booked at Hotel Scandic Uplandia. If you would like a room, just choose “I want accomodation …” when filling in the form below. Since there is a limited amount of rooms, we cannot guarantee a room for everyone.

The registration is now closed. Contact coordinator@essenceofescience.se for questions.
