ISTR's 12th International Conference
Ersta Skondal University College
28 June - 1 July 2016
Stockholm, the capital city of Sweden, is built on 14 islands on the central coast of eastern Sweden and is considered the cultural, political and economic center of the country. Sweden's capital city is known for its architecture, many waterways and parks. By some accounts, Stockholm is called "Venice of the North". Most venues are found in the inner city, "innerstaden", historically the zone within the city tolls. The Municipality of Stockholm extends beyond the inner city, including the western and southern suburbs.
The first written accounts of Stockholm date back to 1252 and at the time it was known for its iron trade and the historic mines of Bergslagen. Sweden gained its independence on June 6, 1523 and by the 17th century, it was a major power in Europe. At the same time, Stockholm began to develop into a major European city and from 1610 to 1680, its population increased dramatically. In 1634, Stockholm was named as Sweden's capital.
We are thrilled to hold our 12th International Conference in Stockholm. Please visit Sweden’s official website for additional tourism and travel information.
