DESRIST 2024 will be located at University West in Trollhättan, Sweden. ‘Trollhättan’ is translated as ‘troll’s bonnet’ and the idea behind the name goes back to an anecdote regarding the city: the water that splashes from a large rock at the bottom of the waterfall (before the hydro dam in Trollhättan was built) was imagined looking like a troll’s hat.

The location is a good choice for arranging international conferences because it has good connection points for transportation to and from the venue/airport (by airport shuffle, train, car), multiple hotels for accommodation, see worthy places (e.g., The dam, Innovatum, GKN) and it is located close to Gothenburg (35 minutes by train).
