How to get there
For participants coming by flight the easiest is to fly to Copenhagen Airport in Denmark. Take the train to Sweden (the train station is inside the airport). All trains to Sweden, named “Öresundståg”, stop at Malmö Central station located within walking distance of the conference venue. The trains departure several times per hour and the trip normally takes 24 minutes. Note that there is a border control to enter Sweden. Remember to bring your passport. Train tickets can be purchased in the automatic vending machines or at the ticket office in Copenhagen airport or in advance through the following link (in English)
You just write “Copenhagen Airport” in the From-box and “Malmö C” in the To-box (it works with Malmo C without the dots over the o, as well).

Leave the central station, cross the channel and take the second street to the left. Continue a few hundred meters and the entrance to the hotel is on your right side. It’s a 9 minutes walk (~700 m) in total. See the location and directions in Google maps.
