The Finnish host organization is the Finnish Peace Research Association, in cooperation with the Tampere Peace Research Institute, TAPRI, University of Tampere.
On Wednesday, July 20 there will be the opening session, the first plenum and the get-together- party. The following two days will start with plenum sessions at 9 am, and the rest of the days are devoted to parallel work sessions. The three plenary sessions shall be opened by the statements of invited keynote speakers. In working groups all participants shall have the opportunity to present their papers and have them discussed.
The venue of the conference is the Tampere Congress Hall.
Regarding accommodation, rooms have been reserved in three hotels, very close to the Tampere Hall, with the code EUPRA (or EUPRA congress or EUPRA 2011) at special conference prices: Holiday Inn Tampere, Hotel Victoria and Scandic Tampere City, as well as in Dream Hostel. All participants have to make their hotel reservations themselves directly to the hotels. The group reservation prices and reservations expire in late spring or early summer 2011 – the dates differ in the four places – so it is advisable to book the hotel rooms well in advance. (The prices of the single rooms in the hotels are 85/89/89 and in the double rooms 97/99/98 euro respectively, and in the Dream Hostel 65 euro for the double rooms and 99 euro for the four bed rooms, per night).
The full programme and time schedule of the conference, the names of the invited keynote speakers (once all have confirmed their attendance), the themes of the working groups, information about participation fees, for travel connections and other practical arrangements will be given on this web-page later on.
Unfortunately, most obviously no travel grants will be available for conference participants.
