The workshops, welcome reception and main conference will take place at Sliperiet at Umeå Arts Campus (i.e., not the main campus). Sliperiet began its days more than a century ago as a woodworking factory. In 2014, the facility was rebuilt and resurrected as a cross-disciplinary research environment. It now hosts a business incubator for startups in the creative industries, a number of workshops (including a FabLab, a SoftLab, and a 3DLab), and has become an appreciated venue for academic and industrial conferences.
By following Umeälven a couple of hundred meters upstream, you get from the conference venue to Väven and P5, where the conference dinner will be held. Väven is also the host to the U&Me hotel, which a convenient choice for those attending the conference.
