Location and Travel

Airport and Air Transportation

All international flights to Stockholm arrive at Arlanda Airport. Airport buses leave Arlanda Airport every 5-10 minutes for the City Terminal in central Stockholm. The bus ride takes approximately 45 minutes and costs SEK 60 (January 1999). The City Conference Centre is within a few minutes walking distance from the City Terminal. You will also find taxis just outside the Arrival Hall at Arlanda. Most taxi companies have a fixed rate of SEK 400 (January 1999) from Arlanda Airport to central Stockholm (the price from Stockholm to Arlanda is 435 SEK). It is strongly recommended to ask the price before entering a taxi. [SEK 100 = USD 12,50]

Public Transportation

Stockholm's public transportation system is safe, very efficient and convenient. It consists of buses, trains and underground. In the city, hotels, museums, shops and restaurants are generally within walking distance, which makes Stockholm an ideal city for strolls.


The 16th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence will be held at the City Conference Centre/Norra Latin which is one of Europe's largest and most beautiful congress and conference facilities. It is located in the center of Stockholm, at walking distance from the Central Railway Station and Air Bus Terminal (see map on the City Conference Centre web page). Norra Latin, the magnificent old grammar school in Florentine Reinassance style from 1880, has recently been renovated. It now offers all conference amenities and provides an excellent setting for IJCAI-99.
