The venue

The QVIZ symposium will take place in HUMlab at Umeå University. The venue is located one floor down from Lindellhallen, which is the building with a tall glass section that resembles an airport terminal.

Getting here

The only reasonable way of traveling to Umeå is by plane. You have to take a taxi (fixed price 18€) or airport shuttle (4€) from the airport to town. The airport shuttle departs after all major arrivals and the shuttle stops right outside Hotel Royal in the city centre. There is no need to book tickets for the shuttle, you can get the ticket on the bus before the departure.


We have arranged for special rates at two hotels in Umeå. Hotel Royal is located down town and the smaller cosier Hotel Pilen, which is closer to the University but still within walking distance of town. Please use the booking references to get the discount:
