FAQ

Normal hotel room or room in a chalet?

Read about the accommodation here.

Is Wi-Fi available?

WiFi should be available in all the rooms.

How do I get from the airport to the conference site?

Directly outside the airport exit will be a shuttle bus running into Levi (ticket costs around 10 Euro bought from the driver). Ask the driver to stop at the hotel you are accommodated at. The ride to K5/Levitunturi takes about 25 min (15 min by taxi). You can also take a taxi: if you share it, it should be roughly that same money per person.

Should I check into the hotel, even if I am accommodated in a chalet?

Regardless of whether you are in a room or an apartment (chalet), please check-in at the relevant hotel reception.

What is the poster size?

The poster size is standard A0, preferably with "portrait" orientation.

How long are the talks?

Invited talk is 40 min including questions, and contributed are 20 min.

Where can I register for the workshop after arriving?

Workshop registration (and a small welcome reception, beer and snacks provided) will be held on Sunday 12.02 at 19:00 - 21:00 in apartment (skiing house/chalet) 4A in hotel K5. On Monday, and for the rest of the workshop, registration will be in the workshop lecture room.

What meals are included into the registration?

Breakfasts on Feb 12-17, lunches on Feb. 13-16 and workshop dinner on Wed Feb 15.

Are there any places to eat out?

As evident from the map, there are quite a few restaurants in Levi where you can have dinner, including the hotel restaurant itself. You can have a fast-food meal for less than 10 Euros or go to a very good restaurant: based on the feedback of the connoisseurs, there is even a Michelin-star level restaurant in Levi (it does not have any stars though, as it is too small), where you can get a delicious dinner for about 100 Euros.

I am staying at a chalet: can I cook dinner myself?

Kitchens in the chalets (skiing houses)) are fully equipped (not only plates, glasses, cutlery, but also pots, frying pans etc.) There are several shops in Levi where you can buy nearly all kinds of food, so that you can make something fancy yourself (not necessarily frozen pizzas).

Can I buy any alcoholic beverages in Levi?

There is an "Alko" shop in Levi where you can buy wine and strong liquors. Beer is available from normal supermarkets. Depending on where you come from (let say, France or Norway) you may be shocked or nicely surprised by the prices. Overall, alcohol is not that cheap in Finland, so if you travel from, let say, France or Germany, you may consider bringing something with you if you plan to participate in late sauna/discussion sessions :-).

Can I get the skis and gear for downhill or cross-country skiing?

You can rent everything you need - there are several rental shops in Levi. If you are accommodated in K5, you can also get skis/boots, etc. for cross-county skiing from the hotel for free, but the quality of skis and gear is rather poor.

What else can I do during the lunch breaks or after the workshop other than skiing?

You can have husky rides or drive a snowmobile. More information from the hotels.

Any practical advice?
