Projection details

The speakers can use their own laptops, or bring their presentations on a memory stick in PPT or PDF format well before the start of their session. The aspect ratio of the projections will be 4:3, and the pixel resolution preferably 1024x768.

Passports and Visas

Most non-European citizens entering Finland must bring a valid passport. For European nationals a valid identity card suffices. Most foreign participants must also acquire an entry visa from the diplomatic mission that represents Finland in their home country. Plan well ahead of time, since issuing an entry visa may take weeks. In general, the applicant must apply in person.

For delegates attending the Satellite Symposia in Tallinn: visas valid to Finland should also be valid for Estonia; if in doubt please check with your embassy or contact the secretariat.

More information can be found at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs website.
