Welcome to the 2017 annual meeting of SRS (Svenska Rymdforskares Samarbetsgrupp) that this year is hosted by KTH in a collaboration between the Particle and Astroparticle Physics group and KTH Space Center.

Venue - UPDATE

Happily, we have outgrown the booked rooms at AlbaNova which means that we are moving the SRS meeting to a new, bigger auditorium at KTH! The meeting will therefore be held in auditorium K1, at Teknikringen 56.

How to get to K1

It is a 500 meter walk from the subway to K1. Take the subway to Tekniska Högskolan and go towards “Tekniska Högskolan”. Having “Stockholm Östra Station” (Stockholm East Railway station) on your left, walk straight ahead on Osquars backe, Teknikringen and all the way to the sign “WWSC – Wallenberg Wood Science Center” where you turn right. The entrance is across the yard, to the left.


The final timetable with speakers can be found under 'Timetable'.


The Swedish National Space Board (SNSB) invites all participants to the SRS dinner 19:00 the 16 March at Tekniska Museet.


The main course is grilled char with mushroom ragout and potato salad and for dessert chocolate mousse with raspberry and mint. Any allergies or food preferences should be mentioned in the registration. The dinner includes one glass of wine/beer/alcohol free beverage as well as coffee. There will be a possibility to purchase additional beverage during dinner.

How to get to Tekniska Museet

By foot: If you want to stretch your legs before dinner there is less than 4km to walk from Teknikringen 56 to Tekniska museet. See this link for directions.

By bus: There are several ways to get to Tekniska museet by bus, see Stockholm public transport journey planner. The bus stop closest to Tekniska Museet is “Museiparken”.
