The conference is cancelled due to the Corona virus (Covid-19).
The conference "Mixed species forests: Risks, Resilience and Management", that was possible postponed to 2020-10-27-29, will definitely be cancelled due to the corona situation.
We have discussed several options, including an online event, but have come to the conclusion to cancel the conference. This was not an easy decision since we and you have put a lot of efforts into the arrangement and into summarizing different studies.
We will, however, produce the abstract book that will be sent to you as an PDF. You may also record your presentation and send us the link (note that this is voluntary). The PDF and the links will later be available at the conference web-page (https://www.mixedforest2020.se/). In case you consider to send us the link to your presentation please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) for format and instructions. The deadline for this is September 30.
The work with the special issue in Forest Ecology and Management is maintained and ongoing. Many participants sent papers, and many of these are now under review.
Unfortunately, there have been a lot of costs for the arrangement even if it is now cancelled (web-page, abstract handling, registrations, venue etc.). We will, however, pay back parts of the conference fee. For the moment we are not sure of the exact amount but estimate that approx. a third can be paid back. Within a couple of weeks you will be contacted by Akademikonferens about this.
We are very sorry that this exiting conference could not be held but hope that you understand the situation.
All the best,
Magnus Löf, Anna Barbati, Andres Bravo-Oviedo, Felipe Bravo, Hervé Jactel, Hans Pretzsch and Miren del Rio
Across the Öresund bridge there is Kastrup – Copenhagen Airport, Copenhagen’s International Airport and the largest airport in the Nordic region. With the Öresund trains, Lund is only a 30 minute train ride from Copenhagen Airport.
Malmö Airport is Sweden’s fourth largest airport and is located approximately 25 minutes from Lund. The airport shuttle, Flygbussarna, from Malmö Airport stops at Lund C.
Details on ground transportation are available in separate tabs.
Lund Central Station is located in the middle of town, which makes train the best option for traveling to Lund.
Skånetrafiken, SJ and Snälltåget operate the trains that run to and from Lund C. You can plan your trip on their respective websites. Travel to and from Copenhagen and Copenhagen Airport is with Skånetrafiken, who also operates the local and regional trains and buses. Their tickets can easily be purchased at the ticket machines at Lund C or at Skånetrafiken’s customer service centre.
SJ tickets are also sold at Pressbyrån and 7-eleven, as well as at the travel agency Big Travel opposite the central station. At the Tourist Office or at Skånetrafiken’s service centre you can also buy 24-hour or 72-hours tickets which are valid all over Skåne on both busses and trains. Keep in mind that you need to buy your ticket before boarding the train.

Airport shuttle bus
Flygbussarna Airport Coaches run between the airport and Malmö/Lund with stops at centrally located bus stops on the way.
At the airport, they are located directly outside the terminal. In Malmö and Lund, the buses depart from the central station.
Tickets can be purchased at the airport, at the bus-stops, on-line as well as on-board the bus (only debit/credit card payment accepted on board).
Upon arrival to an airport, there are usually taxis available outside the terminal. You can also reserve a taxi in advance. When choosing a taxi in Lund – and in Sweden – it is important to ask about the price before the journey begins. If you get a fixed price, it must be entered and visible in the taximeter before the trip starts. Suggestions for taxi operators in the Skåne region:
