Västerås is located about 100 km west from Stockholm.
The nearest international airport is Arlanda
which also is the port to Stockholm. The local airport is used for
domestic traffic, but does also have a connection to Copenhagen. So the most convenient way to travel
would be to take the flight from Copenhagen to Västerås.
Transportation from Arlanda to Västeras takes approx. 1 hour by bus/taxi. An alternative way of transportation
is to take a bus to Stockholm and then train or bus from Stockholms Central to Västerås.

Mälardalen Real-Time research Centre (MRTC) was
initiated by a grant from the Swedish KK-foundation
(Stiftelsen för Kunskap och Kompetens-utveckling)
to further develop the real-time research at Mälardalen University (MdH) in close
co-operation with Swedish industry.
As a result, a group of leading industries has joined
the MRTC-effort by supporting industrial graduate students and participating in research projects.
Strong support from MdH, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research
(SSF, via the programme ARTES)
and the Swedish National Board for Industrial and Technical Development (NUTEK) has enabled a
fast build up of a focused research programme with a healthy balance between applied and fundamental
MRTC organises all research and graduate education at the department of Computer Engineering,
at Mälardalen University (MdH) in Västerås, Sweden. The research covers a wide spectrum - from pure
computer science to applied electronics - but with an emphasis on computer engineering and dominating
focus on real-time systems.
MRTC employs about 40 researchers and graduate students and is organised in the three laboratories:
- The Computer Science Laboratory (CSL), which has two areas of focussed interest: industrial software engineering and programming languages.
- The Real-Time Systems Design Laboratory (SDL), with a focus on methods for constructing safety-critical real-time systems,
- The Computer Architecture Laboratory (CAL), with a focus on Scaleable Multiprocessor Architecture for Real-time Applications and methods and tools for hardware design.
