The conference dinner will take place on Tuesday, 11 June. It will be preceded by a brief sightseeing tour of the island of Suomenlinna. The dinner will be held at an officer club in the atmospheric restaurant Suomenlinnan Upseerikerho (website in Finnish only). We will meet at 17:30 in front of the Market Square ferry station (for the sightseeing tour). You can also come directly to the dinner (exact departure time to be confirmed). You will need a valid Suomenlinna ticket or Helsinki public transportation ticket (not a tram ticket) to board the ferry. Tickets can be bought at a ticket booth at the Market Square or R-kiosks around the city (see Helsinki Region Transport tickets and fares).
We will depart from Suomenlinna at 22:00 at the latest (but see the full ferry schedule here).
