Please prepare 15 minutes presentation in power point of pdf form and bring it with you on a memory stick. Please come to your session 10 minutes before the session starts.

Session chairs

Before the session starts, make sure all presenters from that session are there and they will upload their presentation to the laptop in the room. IT assistant is in each room. Your key role is to keep the timetable. Each presenter has 15 minutes time for their presentation. Q&A length depends on the number of papers in that session. 1.5 -hour sessions have either 4 or 5 papers. If there are 5 papers, there will be only 3 minutes for discussion. If there are 4 papers, there is time for 7 minutes of discussion after each paper presentation. There is one session with 6 papers (the last session is on Thursday). There you can allocate only 2 minutes of discussion after each presentation. If some presenter is missing, you can keep up a longer Q&A. Make sure Thursday’s last session ends in time. Please remind participants to move to the boat pier. Boats are leaving at 18.30.

Dipoli building

Please enter the building from the Events entrance -door (Juhlaovi), which is on the Luolamiehentie side of the building (South side of the building). The postal address Otakaari 24 leads you in a somewhat wrong direction. Dipoli is the funny-looking “rock building”. Dipoli was originally designed in 1966 by Raili and Reima Pietilä as the new university building for technology students. Find more information about the building here.
