Scientific talks

Scientific talks start on Tuesday morning in KEM1. Plenary talks are 50mins and invited talks are 40 min including 5 mins for questions and discussion.

Social program

To be announced.

 

Internet

Eduroam is avaible at Ylistö campus, but there is NO open WiFi. It costs  The hotels (should) have their own free WiFi.

If you don't have eduroam account or want your own internet connection for some other reason, you might want to buy a prepaid SIM card. For example, you can buy Saunalahti Prepaid card for 5,90€ from R-kioski at airport / railroad station. 3G data charges are capped to 0,99€ per day, so it should be enough for 5 days.

 

Weather

If we are lucky it will be above +20°C and sunny, but it might as well be +10°C and rainy. You will need a jacket, especially during nights. Check the forecast, but don't trust it.

ATTENTION! There will be NO NIGHT. The sky will remain bright even after the sunset (after 11 pm) and before the sunrise (around 3 am). So just in case, I recommend you to bring a sleep mask or something else to cover your eyes... unless you are accustomed to sleeping lights on.

 

Sauna

Most hotels in Finland have a sauna, and it is free of charge. Try it out! Especially, if you are staying in Hotel Alba, go to sauna, then jump into the fresh lake, and repeat. If you need guidance, just ask from the reception. If you don't get access to sauna, tell me and we will arrange something.

 

 

Something else?

Just ask.
