How to get there


From the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport you can take either train, bus or taxi. Trains I and P go every 10 minutes from the airport to the Central railway station (between 4.30-1.30). The trip takes about 30min. 

The bus 615 runs from the airport every 30 minutes 24-hours and the trip is taking approximately 45 minutes. It's also possible to choose Finnair city bus, which runs every 20 minutes non-stop to the Central railway station.

Taxi will take you to the city center from the airport about in 20-30 minutes. 


Ferriers bring passengers to Helsinki mostly from Stockholm and Tallinn. The ferries coming from Stockholm have their harbours near the city center either in Katajanokka (Viking Line) or Eteläsatama (Silja Line), which both are accessible by walking and public transport.

Some of the ferries arriving from Tallinn have their harbour in Jätkäsaari in West Harbour (Eckerö Line), which can be reached the easiest by trams 6 & 7.

The conference accommodation is organized in two hotels.

Organizers have pre-arranged a single room housing for the two conference nights (5.6. & 6.6.2019) so the participants only need to confirm at registration whether they will stay at the conference hotel.

In case of longer stays or accompanying persons, we kindly ask conference participants to organize the accommodation themselves. The costs of extra nights or accompanying persons are not covered by NECTAR. Additionally, NECTAR only covers the two nights in either of the conference hotels but not in any other hotel.
