The conference begins on Viking Line ferry leaving Stockholm harbour May 27 2009 at 16.45 Swedish time. We will travel on the Viking Line ferries going from Stockholm to Helsinki with a stop-over in Mariehamn (where we get off).
The trip to Mariehamn from Stockholm takes almost exactly five hours. We will have a lecture room and dinner on the ship.
It is recommended that you be in the ferry terminal at 16.00, at the latest. Someone from the organizing committee (Erik Aurell or Mikko Alava) will be in the ferry terminal with the tickets from 15.30 at the latest.
To repeat: everyone should be aware of that we get off at Mariehamn, the capital of the Aland islands, at 23.40 Finnish time. The ferry continues immediately to Helsinki, on the Finnish mainland. The ferry does not turn back if you don't get off where you should, and it takes the better part of the next day to travel back to Mariehamn.
For the return trip from Mariehamn, this is the responsibility of the individual participants.
However, to simply things, everyone except those who have explicitly indicated a contrary preference are booked on Viking Line sailing from Mariehamn on Saturday May 30 at 14.25 (Finnish time), arriving in Stockholm at 18.55 (Swedish time).
