Travel to Tampere

Tampere is easily accessible. There are excellent flight connections to Finland from all parts of the world. Several international airlines offer regular flights to Helsinki, the capital of Finland. There is a local train stopping at Helsinki Airport that you can take to Tikkurila station and change there to a long-distance train to Tampere (train connections within Finland are found HERE).

Besides the train connections, there are very good long-distance bus connections from Helsinki Airport to Tampere. There are also several daily connecting flights on week-days to Tampere and vice versa (see Finnair and Tampere-Pirkkala airport). From Tampere-Pirkkala airport there are good connections to Tampere city as well. 


More information on visas to Finland, please see HERE.

Please notice that a letter of invitation will be sent by request only for those whose session/paper has been accepted and who have paid the registration fee.

Also note that the conference organizer cannot provide travel grants for the participants.
