Deep sequencing techniques: Bioscience applications, statistical and computational practice and challenges



Some practical information


The workshop will take place in lecture hall Euler in Mathematical Sciences, situated at the top floor of the "Old Physics building" which is part of Mathematical Sciences, at Chalmers main Campus Johanneberg. Registration will be open on Monday morning from 9.00, right outside the lecture hall. Here is a first useful web-page and here is one in which you have a pop-up window that may highlight Euler for you.


For all the ones of you that we have arranged hotel rooms in hotel Panorama, you may have use of the information on this web-page. On this interactive map you can also find Chalmers Campus Johanneberg 600 meters or so westwards from Panorama. In case you wish to contact the hotel you may use their phone number+46 31 767 70 00.

Arrival and Departure

Finally, it is important (especially when you go back) to realize that there are two airports in Gothenburg. The main airport Landvetter airport is situated east of Gothenburg, while the smaller one Gothenburg city airport  (used e.g. by Ryan air and Berlin Air) is situated in the opposite west direction.

Monday Poster Session

Will be arranged in "Laplace" which is a lounge right outside Euler, more or less directly after the seminar sessions.

Party on Tuesday

Will take place at 19.00 in Student Union Restaurant "Hyllan", situated upstairs, nearby where will eat lunches.
