Venue/Hotels

This year the conference will take place at the University of Skövde, Skövde Sweden. The University is at a walking distance from the central train station and the hotels located in city center. The conference will take place in the "G" building on campus.

Getting to Skövde is easy by train whether you are coming from Stockholm or Gothenborg. However, if you arrive to Sweden in the evening, you might have difficulty catching at train the same night. Information about trains can be found here www.sj.se. When arriving to Gothenborg airport (Landvetter) you need to take a bus into Gotheborg city (www.flygbussarna.se) to be able to catch a train to Skövde. If you arrive through Arlanda (Stockholm airport) you can either take a buss to Stockholm train station or use the Arlanda express train. Taxi from airport to train station is also an option but make sure you ask about the price before leaving as prices in taxis are not regulated and the difference in price can be huge.

If you travel by train to Skövde, it is highly recommmended to purchase a train ticket in advance via https://www.sj.se/en/home.html#/
