The society will also be organizing its traditional evening party. The event will take place in the sauna section of Kahvila-Ravintola Maukkaan. The restaurant is at Itsenäisyydenkatu 17 B and is a 5-10 walk from the university.

Registration fees

Society members:

  • 120€/1 day
  • 200€/2 days

Non-members:

  • 170€/1 day
  • 250€/2 days

Those between jobs, students and those on parental leave:

  • 100€/1-2 days

If you are not already a member of the society, there is still time to join before the seminar. For more information on joining the society, see http://stvy.fi/en/node/119

This year's program includes two workshops, each of which can accommodate up to 20 participants.

As a result, there has been a slight change in the registration fees:

  • The one day fee includes all the presentations on Monday and Tuesday, but not the Tuesday workshops.
  • The two day fee includes all the presentations on Monday and Tuesday, and the Tuesday workshops.

You can also just participate in a workshop. In this case, the registration fee is the one day price.

If the workshops are fully subscribed, we will need to limit the number of participants from a single company to allow greater access. If the workshops are full, only two people per company can participate in a single workshop and people on the waiting list will be allowed in order of registration.

Registration

To register, use this form. The last day for registrations is 9 October 2015.

 We look forward to seeing everyone in Tampere!
