2022 – The Economics of Culture and Institutions

General information


Papers and presentations

Papers should be submitted no later than 31 May, 2022. The papers will then be made available via a private link sent by e-mail to all participants. Each presentation may take at most 20 minutes, with a general discussion of 10 minutes to follow. There are no pre-designated discussants; everyone will be free to comment on each paper. Please bring your presentations on a USB stick or send them by e-mail to niclas.berggren@ifn.se prior to the conference.


Traveling to and from Stockholm

The main airport is Stockholm-Arlanda (ARN), to which many airlines fly, not least Scandinavian Airlines. Book an economy-class ticket with arrival on Wednesday 15 June, such that you will make it to the opening dinner at 19:00. In order to make it, you should probably not land at the airport later than 16:30.

As for the return flight, the conference will end around 15:00 on Friday 17 June, which means that flights should probably not depart earlier than 17:30. If you choose to stay in Stockholm, you can book your return flight anytime on Saturday 18 June or Sunday 19 June (we pay for one or two hotel nights in Stockholm).

As soon as your flight has been booked, please send us the itinerary so that we can make hotel reservations. We ask you to do this around Friday 6 May and not earlier (to ensure that the conference will, indeed, place, considering the virus situation at the time).


Transportation to Vaxholm

From Stockholm-Arlanda (ARN) you have to take a taxi to Vaxholm and the conference venue Waxholms Hotell, address Hamngatan 2, Vaxholm, phone +46 8 541 301 50. The drive takes about 45–60 minutes and the taxi fare is about 600–700 SEK. You can pay with a card if you prefer. We strongly recommend that you use one of the three largest companies, Taxi Stockholm, Taxi Kurir or Taxi 020, because of problems with rogue taxi drivers. These reliable taxi companies are located in a designated taxi lane as you exit from the terminal building. If you fly to any other airport, let us know and we can advise you.


At the hotel(s)

Check in and check out: You have access to your room from 15:00 on Wednesday 15 June until 11:00 on the day of departure, Friday 17 June. You are welcome to leave your luggage in the reception if needed. WiFi login information is available in the reception.

For those of you who stay in Stockholm until Saturday or Sunday, accommodation will be arranged at a hotel in central Stockholm, close to the airport train Arlanda Express, which we recommend for going to Stockholm-Arlanda airport.


Travel expenses and accommodation

IFN will reimburse travel expenses (economy class) against original receipts after the conference and pay for accommodation and meals during the conference. The accommodation concerns invited participants and their accompanying persons (see below). IFN will take care of the room reservations, in Vaxholm (from 1517 June), and in Stockholm (for one or two nights), for those who wish to stay over the weekend. For the reimbursement of travel expenses, please send your original receipts and your bank details (name, address, SWIFT/BIC code and IBAN), after returning from the conference, to:

Research Institute of Industrial Economics (IFN)
Attn. Elisabeth Gustafsson
P.O. Box 55665
SE-102 15 Stockholm

Please make sure that the reimbursement claim reaches us by 30 June at the very latest.



If you wish, your partner can come along (but not attend the conference sessions). We pay for the hotel and food at Vaxholm and for the hotel in Stockholm if you choose to remain after the conference until the Saturday or the Sunday. Travel expenses and all expenses in Stockholm except for the hotel must be covered by you. Please let us know if you will be accompanied by your partner as soon as possible.
