As autumn progresses, it’s a good time to turn our thoughts to next summer. Finncon can help you concretize those thoughts, because we now have a confirmation for the con venue. After fifteen years, the con will be returning to the University Hill in Turku. The event facilities consist of three interconnected buildings: Natura, Agora (previously called Natural Sciences Buildings 1 and 2 respectively), and Quantum.

The con will have in its use multiple lecture halls as well as plenty of outdoor spaces for hanging out. Student cafeteria Galilei serves visitors in the Agora building, and there are small shops within walking distance.

The con committee paid a visit to the facilities. Pasi Karppanen, co-chair of the con committee, and Johanna Junnila, press, in the Agora building.

The University Hill is located about 1,5 km from the Market Square, between the Turku Cathedral and the Turku University Hospital (TYKS). The distance to the Kupittaa railway station and the bus station is approximately 1 km, and the central railway station is located approximately 3 km away from the Hill.
