A week before the Midsummer, the capital of Finland is a perfect place to meet colleagues from different countries.

Conference takes place in Athena, a University building in Kruununhaka, in the immediate vicinity of the city centre and the best sights of Helsinki. The address of Athena is Siltavuorenpenger 3.
