The eighth -- and the very last! -- ENIGMA meeting will be hosted by the Helsinki University of Technology / Metsähovi Radio Observatory team. ENIGMA is a network on Blazar research, funded by the European Commission through the Training and Mobility for Researchers program.
The meeting will take place in Otaniemi, which is the campus area of
University of Technology (TKK). Otaniemi is located by the Baltic
Sea. It is actually in the town of Espoo but in the Helsinki Capital Area
and within easy reach from both the Helsinki city centre as well as the
Helsinki international airport (which, again, is in fact not in Helsinki
but in the town of Vantaa, another part of the Capital Area).

The meeting will be held in the Dipoli Conference Centre. (The Dipoli building is world-famous for its unique architecture, designed by Reima Pietilä.)
The meeting will start in the morning of Wednesday, September the 6th, and will end in the afternoon / early evening of Friday, September the 8th. The details of the meeting programme will be available on these web pages close to the meeting. On Thursday, September the 7th, we will have an excursion to the Metsähovi Radio Observatory and after that a conference dinner.
Please note that during the week after the ENIGMA meeting there will be the largest meeting during Finland's EU presidency (the ASEM meeting) in Helsinki. Because of this, it is probably a good idea to book your flight tickets well in advance. Also, if you plan to stay in Finland a bit longer (for vacation, for example), it is a good idea to make all the reservations relatively early, or to have your vacation before the ENIGMA meeting rather than after it.
During the summer we will add other information to this web page, ie. maps, weather information, information about spare time activities, etc.
