Welcome party

will be on April 30 at 19:00-21:00 in the University Café (see location on objects map).


Welcome reception and early registration will be on April 30 at 19:00-21:00, at University Café in Ülikooli 20. Regular registration will take place on Day 1 of the conference.

Conference site

All lectures are held in the Dorpat Conference Centre, which is located on the 4th floor of the Tasku Centre in Turu 2. The registration and sessions will take place in the Peterson Hall of the Conference Centre. Lunch and coffee breaks will be organized near the lecture rooms.

Oral presentations

The duration of oral presentation is set to 22 min plus 3 min for discussion. We wish to avoid the use of participants' laptops for presentation that usually leads to a waste of time. Rather hand a flash with the file of your presentation to organizers. This can be done during the coffee break before your talk. The file will be copied on our laptop connected to an LCD projector. Types for the presentation files are MS PowerPoint and Adobe Acrobat, the latter is preferable. In the lecture hall, there will be also a whiteboard with color markers.


The posters can be put up on their respective boards after lunch on Friday and removed after the presentation. Stands for poster presentations are of A0 format. Posters can be fastened to them by paperclips, which will be provided by organizers.

Internet access

Wireless internet access is available in the conference rooms.

Conference dinner

Banquet will start on May 2 at 19:00 in the Dorpat restaurant.
