Some snacks and drinks will be served at 17.00 - 18.00, and then the talks start (we'll have 1.5h at our disposal).

Please update the list below, and assume 15-20 min slots.


  • Intro by organizers (5-10min)

I'd like to see a couple of more short talks in the above list.

Some suggested topics:

  • Authoring tool news related to svg (inkscape / illustrator)

Hotel information

Opera has deals with Scandic Frimurarehotellet (Opera rate: 1270 SEK/night) and Stora Hotellet (Opera rate: 1060 SEK/night).

It should be enough to say you want the Opera Software rate when booking.


The recommended choice is Linköping City Airport which is the closest airport to the meeting venue.

Other options include flying to Stockholm and e.g taking the train to Linköping. It's possible to take a train directly from Stockholm Arlanda Airport, but note that the trains for Linköping don't run very late in the evening, see sj.se for details. The trainride is about 3h.

Another option is Stockholm Skavsta Airport, which is a little closer to Linköping than Stockholm Arlanda. They have connecting coaches for Linköping, the busride takes about 1.5h. See [2].

Ground Transportation

A taxi from Linköping's airport to Opera's office (or any central hotel) takes ~10 minutes and typically costs somewhere around 150 SEK.


The local currency is the Swedish krona (SEK). See currency converter for current conversion rates.


Europlug Type C and F, 230V.
