Just back from a quick trip to Mid Sweden University (or Mittuniversitetet). We were at the Östersund campus which is a little further north than the two other campuses, Härnösand and Sundsvall.


Ostersund (from the taxi window)

Östersund is described as ‘the number one winter city’ and it was certainly picturesque – covered in snow and fairly chilly outside. Yesterday was a beautiful crisp and sunny day so we got to see it at its best (although my taxi-based iPhone image might not convince).

We were guests of Kristen Snyder who was fantastically enthusiastic, knowledgeable and a very welcoming host. Along with her colleagues and Magnus Berger from Avedas they showed us their implementation of Converis – which you can see in action on Kristen’s profile page.

Kristen had also kindly arranged for an early evening meal so that we had time to catch our plane back to Stockholm. It was a good chance to sample the local cuisine so I went for the reindeer – which I can heartily recommend.
