Important information


  • Pre-registration to the Satellite Symposia is no longer possible due to the ferry passenger list deadlines. Current ferry reservations are binding, and unfortunately no changes will be possible at this stage. A limited number of Satellite packages will be sold on-site at Dipoli.
  • The ferry company will issue the tickets only on Wednesday afternoon. Thus you will need to pick up your ticket at the registration/information desk at Dipoli on Thursday, or very latest on Friday by 12:00 noon.
  • After that, all unclaimed tickets will be taken to the Tallink ferry Terminal at Lansisatama. There will be an desk with the NT13 logo on the 2nd floor near the group registration desk.
  • For delegates only attending the satellites by traveling via Helsinki, you can pick up your ticket at the Tallink ferry Terminal from 13:00 to 16:00 on Friday June 28.

Ferry departure

  • We have arranged for bus transport for all the delegates from Dipoli directly to the Tallink ferry terminal on Friday right after lunch.
  • We thus recommend that you check out from your hotel on Friday morning, and bring your luggage to Dipoli with you. There will be a safe room for the luggage there.
  • The ferry to Tallinn will depart at 16:30 sharp on Friday June 28. It will not wait for you, and we cannot replace or refund tickets left unused due to being late from the ferry. You should be at the terminal one hour before (15:30) to make it in time.
  • If you miss the ferry, there will be further departure at 18:30, 19:30 and the last one at 22:30. You can buy tickets directly at the Tallink ferry terminal or online.

Getting to the hotels

  • It is only a 1.5 km walk from the Terminal where the Tallink ferry arrives to the Conference hotels. Thus we have not reserved a bus for the transit. However, should you prefer not to walk, taxis available at the Terminal do not cost more than a few euros.

Satellites dinner

  • The Satellites dinner will be held at Mustpaede Maja (House of the Blackheads) starting at 20:00 on Saturday, June 29th. Address: Pikk str. 26, 10133.
  • There will be a bus sightseeing bus transportation from the Spa & Conference hotel leaving at 19:00.
  • Additional dinner tickets will be available for purchase at Dipoli at the registration/information desk (65 euros, credit card or exact change cash only), but no longer in Tallinn.
