The Wednesday film eve will start at 19:30 in Quantum auditorium. We will watch the film "Women in Mathematics Across Cultures" (about 50 minutes). After the film there will be time for conversation. The film is 15 years old, so it can be fascinating to compare the issues raised there to the issues we might be facing today. Snacks and drinks (wine, beer, soda) will be served and you are welcome to bring own drinks if you want something else.
Thursday dinner and excursion: The pick-up is again either by the cathedral or by hotel Scandic Plaza at 17:00. Don't be late! First we take a small bus excursion to Ruissalo island and then head for a buffet dinner (around 18:30) in Aurinko restaurant in Kansanpuisto, Ruissalo. You will see big cruiseboats (at least if we are lucky!) and some nice villas.
The poster talks are scheduled for Thursday morning 10:30-11:15. In case you want to present a poster and haven't printed it out yet, you can bring it to us as a pdf and we try to print and enlarge it early enough for the session. Each poster presenter will have 10 minutes to present their poster and answer questions. The presentations will take place in the Quantum lobby (so not inside the auditorium but in front of it). A more detailed timetable will be put on the wall before the session.
Don't forget to bring your receipts to the registration desk if you need to get reimbursed (travel grant/invited speaker)! The invited speakers should bring the receipts Thursday morning the latest, as we need to make the travel invoices before going to the bank on Thursday. Those of you who have euro as currency (so all Finnish speakers, for example) can give us the account details and we can also tranfer it via bank after the summer school. If you cannot make it to the bank on Thursday (14:30) and don't have euro account, please let us know as soon as possible. The grant holders can claim their money towards receipts at any time (when Camilla/Sanna/Eeva/Aasa is present) at the registration desk.
We are making a participant list, you will get one later this week! If you DON'T want your e-mail in the list, let us know as otherwise it will be there :).
Midsummer fest schedules: In the weekend we have the midsummer fest, so the trains and buses may be crowded. Try to be patient, and it is good to know that you can enter the train without a ticket (so if at the station you are told the train is sold out, you can still get in), and then buy one from the conductor. You won't get a seat, but usually you can still find an empty seat or just go to the restaurant car and have a beer :). Usually buses better take into account the special dates like this, so I hope it will be fine!
Getting to the university: The lectures will take place (up on the university hill) in the "Quantum" auditorium, which is in the physics building number T7 (G5) in the campus map, see
The simplest access is from Hämeenkatu, take the stairs up from Hesburger, and while climbing the steps, it will be the first building on your right (so not the yellow wooden one below the stairs, but the first "modern" looking building by the stairs). The registration desk is in front of the auditorium. From Hortus there's even a simpler way, see the above campus map; Hortus is building T42 (E6).
Getting paid for your expenses (invited speakers and grant holders): Don't forget to save the receipts, we can only pay towards original receipts (this is the university policy). Contact the registration desk in order to get reimbursed.
Presentations: If you are giving a talk in the summer school (invited/contributed), please bring your slides to us during some of the breaks, so that we can download them on our laptop. Own laptops cannot be used unless really necessary (we will have a USB stick in case you don't have your own). Alternatively, you can e-mail your slides to Camilla: (cajoho [at] utu [dot] fi). Kindly do this well in advance in order to avoid any extra hassle in speaker change. There will also be an overhead projector and a whiteboard.
The contributed talks will be allowed 20 minutes for presentation, including Q&A and speaker change. Try to respect the timing!
There will be a (very) short break in the middle during the 90-120 minute lectures, this is mainly for the speaker to take a breath :) The audience could stay put if possible, otherwise the break is not likely to be that short as there're quite many of us!
Important! If you are staying at B&B Tuure, please take into account that they close at 9pm, so you need to arrive before that in order to get your room for the night. If you arrive later, make sure to contact Eeva Suvitie (eevsuv [at] utu [dot] fi) and set up a time so that she can come and let you in.
If you are staying at the University Guesthouse Villa Hortus and arriving during the weekend, please let Camilla (cajoho [at] utu [dot] fi) and Villa Hortus (villahortus [at] utu [dot] fi) know so that they can come and let you in, as the guesthouse is closed during the weekends (guests can stay there even then of course :), we just need to know it!).
The online registration system remains open, but register ASAP to make sure to receive the proceedings.
Even if you've missed the submission deadline, don't worry. We'll have a poster session. Just bring the poster with you and we'll put it on display. Please let us know if you want to give a short talk (10 minutes) based on your poster. Bring on all those pretty graphs!
The support money will be distributed to the recipients towards original receipts upon arrival (unless we directly pay your local costs). A copy of a receipt will do, if the sum is bigger than the support and someone else will reimburse the rest.
