Conference Venue

Traveling to Malmö, Sweden

HHAI 2024 will be hosted at Malmö University, which is located in southern Sweden. Malmö is Sweden’s third biggest city and can be easily reached by train, bus, car, and plane.

The workshops and tutorials (June 10-11) will be held in Malmö University’s Niagara building. The main conference will be held June 12-14 in Malmö University’s Orkanen building.
Address for Niagara: Nordenskiöldsgatan 1, 211 19 Malmö, see on Google Maps.
Address for Orkanen: Nordenskiöldsgatan 10, 211 19 Malmö, see on Google Maps.
The allocated room in Orkanen is at the ground floor: OR:D138

If traveling by plane, Copenhagen Airport (Kastrup, EKCH) is a convenient choice with over 200 direct routes. From the airport terminal, you can take the commuter train to Malmö, which will take around 25 minutes: Öresund train to Malmö Central Station.

Malmö has an own airport as well (Sturup, ESMS): take the Airport buses to Malmö Central.

From Malmö Central it is a 5 minutes walk to reach the building Niagara.

If you prefer to take your car, there are parking garages in the area (not free).

About Malmö

In Sweden’s third largest city there is plenty to discover, below you will find our tips on how to spice up your stay in our wonderful city.

In Malmö you can walk everywhere but even better – discover Malmö by bike. Malmö is a cycling city and via Malmö by bike you can easily rent a bike to get around quickly and easily.

Västra Hamnen is a wonderful place on sunny days where you can enjoy modern architecture and the Turning Torso. A stone’s throw away is Ribersborgsstrand with Ribersborgs Kallbadhus for those who want to swim or have a coffee in a lovely environment.

If you want to stay in the center there is Slottsparken with lush walking paths and cafes. From here, you can check out Malmö City Library or why not take a walk through charming cobblestone streets to nearby Lilla Torg. For those with a little more time on their hands, Möllevångstorget with its market square and exciting restaurants is a fun place to visit.

Don’t miss the chance to visit the local art gallery at Malmö Konsthall, or the contemporary art museum at Moderna Museet.

Shopping can be done either centrally along Södergatan and Södra Förstadsgatan or between “Stortorget and Triangeln”, as we say in the vernacular. If you prefer shopping centers, there is the popular Emporia in Hyllie, two stations from Centralen. And from Hyllie you are only a few stations away from Copenhagen if you want to visit our Danish neighbors.

Last but not least, we want to mention Malmö’s national dish – the Falafel roll!
This dish can be found in countless places around Malmö, but the densest are along Bergsgatan and at Möllevångstorget. Ordinary Malmö residents order a falafel roll with “everything on it and mixed sauce”!
