You can attend workshops in Copenhagen, Linköping, Stockholm and Uppsala prior to the main Conference. In Linköping there are three back-to-back workshops. After IJCAI-99, you can stay and attend a workshop in Stockholm, or you can continue to meetings in Trondheim or Helsinki.
The chair for IJCAI-99 affiliated events is Henrik Eriksson, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about each event can be found in the IJCAI-99 web pages. As you can see from this overview, there are clusters of workshops before and after IJCAI-99.
Although airfare in Scandinavia can be high if you purchase the tickets separately, it is often possible to find affordable package deals. Also, do not forget about other means of travel. There are excellent train connections between most of the affiliate-event cities. For example, it is possible to get train tickets that include ferry connection for traveling from Copenhagen to Stockholm. There are also affordable cruises between Stockholm and Helsinki.
