Welcome to Helsinki in just a few days!
The conference is about to begin, so here are some final details. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Due to some last-minute cancellations, the conference program has changed quite a lot. The final schedule is available below. We did our best to keep presentations on the same day as they were in the previous version, but your time of presentation may have changed. Please note that the conference program starts on Monday at 9:15. Registration opens outside the conference rooms (Metsätalo building, 3rd floor, rooms 6 and 7) at 8:30.

Book of abstracts: Abstracts
Your conference fee includes all coffee breaks and lunches (salad buffets) on Monday and Tuesday. A list of suggestions for lunch places for Wednesday is available here.
A booklet of abstracts will be posted here on Friday (7 June). In order to reduce the amount of unnecessary printing, we will not include the booklet in your conference packs. Please let us know at email@example.com if you would like to have a paper copy of the booklet and we will have one for you at the registration desk.
The University of Helsinki provides a wireless connection through the eduroam network.
Arriving in Helsinki: We recommend you take a train from the airport to the centrail railway station. There are two trains (I and P), running every 5-10 minutes during the day and 15-20 minutes after 7 p.m.). You can take either train, as they both end up at the central railway station in 30-35 minutes. Make sure you buy your ABC-zone ticket from a ticket machine before you get on the train (machines are located outside the entrance to the station between terminals 1 and 2, as well as in the baggage hall claim in terminal 2).
The weather forecast promises mixed weather for us, though only with a slight chance of rain (fingers crossed this holds!). As a city by the sea, Helsinki is fairly windy, so especially those of you coming to the conference dinner in Suomenlinna on Tuesday will want to be prepared for a stiff sea breeze.
