Conference Venue:

See campus map with indications (bus stop and specific building where the workshop is held) HERE in PDF. The workshop is held at the “student association building” (a white building to the left getting off the bus). On Tuesday there will be a small reception booth in the lobby of the student association building, where participants can register.

Bus number 5 with the direction “YLIOPISTO” goes directly to the University main building (last and automatic stop). The bus starts from the railway station, goes via the city center, and continues to the university (and vice versa). The schedule for the time of the conference is not yet available, but the busses generally go every 20 minutes or so. The bus ride to the university will take about 20 minutes from the city center and about 30 minutes from the railway station.
