The Venue

The venue of the NAJAKS 2010 conference is the Forest House (Metsätalo in Finnish) of the University of Helsinki, located in the downtown university area.

The sessions will be held in 2nd and 3rd floors of the Forest House. For precise information, see the program [1].

The Forest House, finished in 1939, is named after its original occupants, the Department of Forest Sciences of the university and the Finnish Forest Research Institute. Currently the building houses university departments such as philosophy, modern languages, classical philology, and Finnish and Finno-Ugric languages.
