12th International Conference on integrated Formal Methods

The iFM Conference will be held at Reykjavík University (RU).

Reykjavík University is located next to Öskjuhlíð hill, one of Reykjavík's green areas shaped by the Ice Age. Wooded walks are the ideal way to take in the scenery around the university building. There is just a 2-minute stroll to the popular warm-water bathing beach at Nautholsvik.

Flights

Iceland is only a 3 hours flight from cities in Europe such as London, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, Amsterdam and Paris. There are now many choices available for travelling by air to Iceland. During 2016 two Icelandic airlines will offer regularly scheduled flights from multiple cities in Europe and America. We highly recommend making reservations as early as possible, since Reykjavík is a very popular tourist destination during the summer months and the less expensive tickets are booked fairly quickly.

Icelandair

The main airline in Iceland, Icelandair, offers many direct flights to Reykjavik from multiple cities both in Europe and in America. For online booking and all further information please see www.icelandair.com.

WOW air

A recent budget airline, WOW air now offers flights from up to 20 different cities in Europe as well as Washington, D.C. For booking and all further information please see www.wowair.com

Accommodation

The summer months from June to August are high tourist season.  Especially during these months, booking rooms in Reykjavik can be difficult due to the large number of visitors to Iceland. We highly recommend booking your hotel room as early as possible to avoid disappointment. We have reserved a contingent of rooms at the following hotels that are guaranteed until March 15. You can book one of them together with the registration. All prices are per night, including breakfast and VAT.

  

  

If our contingents are booked or the deadline expired, you have to make your own arrangements. Hotels in the centre of Reykjavik and along Bus Line 5 have a convenient connection to Reykjavik University, for example:
