Conference venue

The conference will be held at Slagthuset (historical slaughter-
house from 1904, now a conference and entertainment facility),

located just a five-minute walk from the central railway station

and downtown Malmö.





Malmö is an international city and the commercial hub of southern Sweden. You can easily reach Malmö by train from Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup, which is just 30 minutes away. Malmö’s long history is well integrated with modern life and immigration has made Malmö a multicultural city. Whether visiting Malmö for business or pleasure, the city has much to offer. Its nickname, “The City of Parks,” speaks for itself, as does the long sandy beach by Ribersborg (known as “the Scandinavian Copacabana”), and the unique Öresund Bridge that takes you straight to Copenhagen, Denmark.

Copenhagen is the metropolitan capital of Denmark with several historical and modern attractions, a rich cultural life, and a harbor clean enough for swimming. When visiting the capital, don’t miss the impressive new opera house, Christiansborg Palace, and one of the foremost characters from the fairy tale world of Hans Christian Andersen, the Little Mermaid.
