NYM 2021 Practical Information
25 - 27 November, 2021 Lund University Sweden
Visa to Sweden
Sweden is a member of the European Union, and travel to and from Sweden is governed by EU law. Therefore, different entry requirements may apply depending on where you're travelling from, and what your nationality is.
The Currency in Swedish is Swedish Kroner (SEK). 100 SEK is equivalent to 9.70 EUR or 11.4 USD.
Bring your student card (if you have one) with you to the conference, as you might be able to enjoy some discounts, for example, regarding transportation.
Public transport and ‘Skånetrafiken’ app
Skånetrafiken is the local regional public transport company. We strongly recommend you download their app (https://www.skanetrafiken.se/om-oss/ladda-ner-appen/, translate in the upper right corner) to your phone. It will help you find your way around the region of Skåne and you can buy tickets for train, bus or tram directly in the app and get a discount on the normal price. The app also allows you to buy a ticket from Copenhagen Airport to Lund central station (Lund C) or Malmö central station (Malmö C).
Lodging is not included in the meeting registration fee and you will have to make your own arrangement. Accommodation in Lund will be the most convenient option. 2 places with different price range that we can suggest are: Elite Hotel Ideon (close to Kemicentrum) and Winstrup Hostel.
