Porthania PI is fully accessible by wheelchair. The audience areas of Porthania PII, PIII and PIV are accessible by wheelchair, but there are steps leading to the speaker's booth. Porthania P673 and P674 are accessible by wheelchair, but there are steps leading to the speaker's booth, and the elevator doors are heavy.

Book exhibitors

The 69th Rencontre Assyriologique Internationale organizers invite publishers to set up book stalls at the RAI. We hope to make a wide selection of publications on Ancient Near Eastern Studies available to our conference participants.

Book stalls will be located in the main lobby of the central venue (Porthania, Yliopistonkatu 3). The rental fee of a book table (140 cm x 70 cm) is € 100 for the duration of the conference. Tables can be rented via our online registration system March 1st - June 15th. We kindly ask all persons who will be working at the bookstalls to register for the conference as well.
