Train tickets can be purchased from the Skånetrafiken or DSB ticket machines in the arrivals hall at Copenhagen Airport. You can pay using a debit/credit card, and if you buy a ticket all the way to Lund, the ticket will be valid even if you need to change trains at Malmö central station.

How do I get to the conference venue by train?
Lund is located on the main railway line from Malmö to several different destinations such as Berlin, Olso, Stockholm and Gothenburg. It takes approximately 10 minutes to travel between Malmö and Lund by local trains – schedules for both types can be found on Skånetrafiken’s website. Tickets are available from the ticket machines on the platform.

It is up to the presenter whether or not to prepare a Power Point presentation. The format for Innovative Sessions will be determined by the session organizers.
Are there guidelines for full papers?
