In addition, there are information screens associated with certain divisions, departments and other defined areas.

Campus Management has placed digital information screens at the main entrances to Ångström Laboratory. In addition to these, there are public information screens on the second floors of Buildings 1, 2 and 4 at the Information Technology Centre (ITC).

Advertising on the information screens: Contact AV support at av-support-angstrom@uu.se if you want to advertise on the public information screens, no later than one week before the event, for planning and if you require any assistance with the production of information materials.

Conference Phones

Conference phones have been installed at a number of locations at Ångström Laboratory. The phones work differently so it is a good idea to determine if the equipment meets your needs before your meeting. If there is a problem, contact the Janitor's Office.

  • Information Technology Centre: Rooms 4306 and 4308 share a conference phone.
  • Ångström Laboratory: Conference phones are located in the Beurling Room (10238), the Middle Room (10234) and in Rosetta (10239). Equipment can also be borrowed at the reception.

Video conferencing

In collaboration with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Uppsala University has installed a number of video conferencing facilities at various campus areas. The aim is to provide wide access to video conferencing for our departments, both for teaching and for research and administration. The facilities may be used by all employees and cost nothing to use beyond any rent for premises.

1. Before your video conference meeting

At Ångström Laboratory there are a number of mobile video conferencing units. Two are located in the technology storeroom 10202 at Ångström Laboratory and one is located in the meeting room 2414b at ITC.

At Ångström Laboratory, there are two types of mobile video conferencing systems. One carriage consist of a screen, a microphone, and a camera, and is used independently from your computer to connect to a video conference call (the meeting is set up via the instructions below).

One carriage is equipped with an e-meeting system that provides a camera, speakers and a microphone, but which requires computer to connect to a meeting (through software such as Zoom).

2. Book your video conference meeting

Connection support is available by writing AV support at av-support-angstrom@uu.se. ITC staff can create a case report in Bugzilla to obtain help. Be sure to contact support well in advance of your booked meeting.

3. After your video conference meeting

The equipment must be returned to the room where it is stored the same day and connected after use (note: connect both power and network cables). The video conferencing equipment must be booked for the entire time the equipment is not in its room.

Exhibitions and art

Departments at Ångström Laboratory can display and market their activities and results in various forms in the public parts of the buildings. The Art and Presentation Group considers and assesses individual requests from the departments.

Information in the public areas is primarily communicated through already established channels, such as notice boards, digital information screens or what are known as pavement signs/stands. Posting various pieces of paper/information in non-designated places is not allowed. Campus Management provides the necessary equipment, pavement signs/stands, etc. Suggestions from units/departments on new/alternative methods/systems are handled by the Art and Presentation Group.

Requests for exhibitions/presentations/marketing in public areas are assessed by the Art and Presentation Group. Such consent is to be in writing and for a limited time. If a permanent installation is required (such as for electricity for lighting) or an installation that may cause damage to the property, permission from the property owner needs to be obtained first. This is done through Campus Management. Uncertainties regarding costs associated with the above are resolved in consultation with Campus Management.

When you want to put up a notice, exhibit something or make a presentation in the common premises:

  • turn to the reception if it is for a short time, such as a few hours or a day, they will help you book a space for your exhibitions and provides poster screens.
  • contact the Art and Presentation Group if it will be for a longer period.
