Getting to Espoo Finland
Helsinki Airport has connections with various European major airports. From the airport you can get to Helsinki city center with both train and bus. More information can be found on the airport's website. You can reach the conference venue at Aalto University campus by metro from Helsinki city center (10-15min).
We advice you to stay in a hotel in Helsinki city centre as you can reach the campus by metro. Because June is high season for travelling and conferences we advice you to book your accomodation well in time before the conference.
