The conference will be organized as an on-site event. Since there may still be travel or meeting restrictions at the time of the conference, those speakers who cannot travel to Helsinki may present their papers online. However, we don't have sufficient technical facilities nor personnel to organize a full-scale hybrid conference and hence online participation will be restricted and only selected talks will be available for online attendance (plenary talks and talks marked 'online' in the program; whether it is possible to extend the scope of streamed talks will be clarified at the beginning of August).
All registrations include an electronic copy of the conference proceedings which will be produced after the conference. Note that all presenters will have to register by July 1. The late and onsite registration options are available only for non-presenting participants. The registration link is here.
