The conference venue and getting there

The Conference Venue
The University of Jyväskylä is a research-oriented university with about 15000 students. It is centrally located in the beautiful Finnish Lakeland region. Jyväskylä is also the second most popular city for conferences and congresses in Finland, with services close at hand and easily accessible. For more, see: Conferences in Jyväskylä.
Jyväskylä is easy to reach either by flying from Helsinki International Airport to Jyväskylä (35min) or using flight connection to Tallinn (50min). Flights are recently rescheduled, providing several daily connections to both airports, and thus, access to major European airports.
It is also easy and convenient to come to Jyväskylä by train from Helsinki (3hrs), Tampere (1.5hrs), St. Petersburg (6hrs) or Moscow (overnight). 
Tampere (1,5hrs by train) has also flight connections to a number of airports ranging from London to Frankfurt-Hahn, Copenhagen and Riga. 
The conference hotel in Jyväskylä is opposite the train station, practically in the center of the city, and only  a ten-minute walk to the university campus, where the conference will be held.
