Conference site and hotel

We have found a great spot for QSIP 2018 in Saltsjöbaden, 30 min east of Stockholm right where the Stockholm archipelago begins. The Hotel is called Vår Gård (vargard.se). The name translates to ‘Our Mansion’ and that is the way it will be in QSIP 2018. There are plenty of rooms for all of us but small enough that we can call it our own.  It is located  right at the waterfront in tranquil surroundings, but also close to downtown Stockholm by public transportation. Please book your room/rooms in the registration form. We can guarantee rooms for everyone until February 11th, 2018.
