June 8 - 10, 2022 (Wed-Fri): Silja Line Symphony cruise ship from Helsinki to Stockholm and back. (Cruise, including accommodation and meals, is included in the conference registration fee.) The ship leaves on Wed afternoon from the Olympia terminal, downtown Helsinki. Important information:
At the Silja Line cruise ship, standard WiFi is available throughout the ship via a code that is given on your cruise ticket. Please note that the connection speed is limited. In addition, a Premium WiFi network will be available at the Starlight area where the conference presentations will be held. The code for the Premium network will be shared to the participants onboard the ship on Wednesday.
Travel documents: In addition to the documents needed to enter Finland, you will need appropriate travel documents to enter Stockholm (Sweden) because part of the conference takes place on a cruise ship that goes to Stockholm. The documents will be checked upon boarding the cruise ship.
Both Finland and Sweden are Schengen states and thus generally have a common visa policy.
If you need an invitation letter for visa application, please indicate that on the registration form or contact the conference organisers by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please note that an invitation letter can be sent to you only if you have completed conference registration.
COVID-19 guidelines: For up-to-date information about requirements to enter Finland, please see the webpage of The Finnish Border Guard. As for entering Sweden, the up-to-date information can be found on the webpage of The Swedish Police.
