Kista is a Stockholm suburb situated between Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Stockholm City. Forum is a building in Kista (pronounced “she-sta”, by the way) that houses the VMBO workshop organizers — the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences (DSV). 

Here are some directions for finding your way to Forum. Once inside Forum the room to look for is 510.

4. From Forum entrance to Room 510. (2m30s). Inside Forum the room to look for is 510. The main entrance is on floor 4, so you need to go up one floor. There are sign posts all over the place and we will put up extra signs. You need to enter a code at one door at the 5th floor. Read the blog post “Door code is activated” for instructions on how to get it.
