The conference takes place at the central campus of the University of Helsinki in the very center of the city, about 500 metres from the Central Railway Station. Most of the program is concentrated in the Main Building of the University of Helsinki, situated in Fabianinkatu 33, but some minisymposia and contributed talks are in Fabianinkatu 26 that houses the Language Center of the University. The distance between Fabianinkatu 33 and 26 is about 150 metres.
The Main Building is situated between Fabianinkatu and the Senate Square and consists of the Old Side (entrance from the Senate Square, Unioninkatu 34) from the 1830s and the New Side (entrance from Fabianinkatu) from the 1930s. The sides are connected via the 2nd floor. The lobby of the 2nd floor of the New Side and poster sessions and coffee is served there during most of the conference days. Registration for the conference is in the 1st floor lobby of the New Side on Monday. The special keynote address and plenary speeches take place in the pompous great hall of the Old Side. The IPIA meeting convenes in the small festival hall of the New Side on Monday.
The Summer School will be organized at the Kumpula science campus (street address Gustaf Hällströmin katu 2) which is located four kilometers north from the town center.
