Thank you all once again! Keynotes professors Gasparov, Scott-Smith, roundtable participants Hannu Himanen and Diego Marani, all the speakers, assistants, audience and cafeteria staff – thanks to you we had an extremely interesting and smoothly running event! Pictures will be uploaded to Facebook and home page later, so stay tuned!
This winter has been exceptionally warm in Finland, and there is less snow than probably ever at this point of winter. Luckily, there is snow, which makes the surroundings look much nicer.
For the next week, the temperatures are predicted to move around -10 degrees. Currently it looks like that it won’t get colder, but it is hard to predict the weather here in Finland. There should be reliable weather broadcasts for the duration of the conference by the beginning of the week.
For those coming from warmer countries, remember to dress up in layers and have shoes that are not too slippery on icy streets.
