Participatory event

Please not that because this conference tries to be a participatory event (which means that we would like to create a space for dialog between all the conference participants and not only between speakers), participation in the entire day is highly recommended.

The conference is free of charge.



All participants are responsible for their own accommodation booking.

Please, kindly note that the University of Eastern Finland and the University of Luxembourg will not be able to cover or reimburse any costs for travel and accommodation.

With the aim to ensure balanced participation of all individuals, the organisers reserve the right to refuse registrations.

Please, wait until you receive the confirmation email before booking any arrangements.
