Helsingborg is situated by the coast of south Sweden. Although being the eighth biggest town in Sweden (population: 104.250), the city centre is compact and easy to access and move around in.
The conference itself will take place in Dunkers Kulturhus (Dunkers Culture House), Kungsgatan 11, Helsingborg, Sweden. The name comes from Henry Dunker who was a businessman and industrialist working with rubber products (for instance rubber boots). At the time of his death in 1962, Dunker was Sweden´s wealthiest man. His fortune was donated to the improvement of the city of Helsingborg, Dunkers Kulturhus being one. Dunkers houses both a historic exhibition of the city and contemporary art exhibitions and is a part of the museums of Helsingborg. There is also a concert hall, restaurant and bistro and various cultural events day and night.
