ALGO sessions will take place in four halls:

Presentation equipment

In all lecture halls, you can use either the computer provided by us (Windows-PC with Adobe Reader and Powerpoint), or you can connect your own laptop. In all halls there will be connectors and adapters at least for HDMI, Mini DisplayPort, USB-C, and VGA.

All lecture halls have projectors with a native aspect ratio of 16:9. Halls C and D have relatively small canvases, so using the 16:9 aspect ratio and large fonts for slides is recommended for the best results.

Please come to the lecture hall well in advance before your presentation to set up and test everything! We will have local organizers in the lecture halls helping you with the setup also before the first talk of the day and during the lunch and coffee breaks.

Lunch and coffee

Lunch and coffee will be served in two floors: in front of hall A and in front of hall B.

Regular lunch is served in both places, and you are free to use whichever is less crowded. However, food for those with dietary restrictions is served in front of hall B.

There is space to have lunch both in front of hall A and in front of hall B. If you are looking for a place to sit down for lunch, follow the signs for the restaurant in the C wing.


Water will be available all the time near halls A, B, C, and D.

Registration and information desk

ALGO registration desk is next to the main entrance.

At the registration desk, you can pick up an envelope with your name. In the envelope you will find your conference badge, the receipt for the registration fee, and the certificate of participation.

We will also have some city maps of Helsinki available at the desk, as well as printed versions of the conference program.

The registration desk opens each day at 8:00am and it is open all the time until the end of the last session each day; you will always find local organizers there. If you have any questions, or if you need any kind of help, please feel free to ask there!

Internet access

There are two wireless networks available in the conference building:

Working space, meeting rooms

We have reserved three small classrooms near hall C for the ALGO participants: A-307, A-308, and A-309. You can use these for quiet work, meetings, Skype calls, etc. Just follow the signs for hall C, and then follow the signs for the meeting rooms.

If you would like to organize a lunch meeting during the conference, please ask us! We have reserved some small meeting rooms that are suitable for lunch meetings.

Poster session

WABI poster session will be held in front of hall B.
