NORDITA, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics, recently moved from Copenhagen :) to Stockholm :(, where there's plenty of empty space in and around the AlbaNova university center. While poor Bohr no doubt spins violently in his grave, the usurpers are busy consolidating the sacrilege, and this should help them put the institute's new home on the map:
Cosmology, Strings, and Phenomenology Conference
To be fair, the international advisory committee is impressive, especially for a Nordic meeting, and with the likes of Sarkar listed among the speakers, they can't be all evil. ;) There's also no better time than June to see Sweden (just don't be fooled into thinking it's anything like that most of the time) and if you like neofascist architecture, AlbaNova is a real treat (think "big Italian railway station from the Mussolini era").
Don't worry, I am unlikely to be around to bug you.
