Towards Rationality in Two-Dimensional Nanomaterials XI
- Next meeting
- 11-13 February 2025
- Levi, Finland
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 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?
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 Monday 10.02 at 19:00 - 22:00 in apartment (skiing house/chalet) 4A in hotel K5. On Tuesday, and for the rest of the workshop, registration will be in the workshop lecture room in hotel Levitunturi.
What meals are included into the registration?
Breakfasts on Feb 11,12,13,14 lunches on Feb. 11,12,13 and workshop dinner on Feb 12. Welcome reception with snacks on Feb 10.
Are there any places to eat out?
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.
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 yourself.
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's 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?
- Traditionally, Finns take shoes off when are indoors (makes sense, as you can bring in lots of snow on your shoes). If you are staying in a chalet or going for a visit to a chalet (including chalet A4 where registration will take place :-), please remember this. Consider bringing slippers, or better flip-flops (you can use them in a sauna as well).
- You can wear your "outdoor" shoes in the conference room and in the hotel, of course, no problem with that.
- Depending on the model of the electric heater you have in your sauna, the heater may or may not have a switch which limits the maximum power. So if your sauna is not hot enough for you, check the position of the switch, but remember it takes a while to warm up.
- Please do not forget to ventilate the sauna from time to time, though.
- If you are staying in a chalet, remember that when sauna is on, electric heating of the chalet is automatically off. Please read the rules on using sauna carefully.
- During late sauna sessions do not forget about other participants of the workshop who are staying in your chalet, and try to limit the amount on noise you produce.
