Geodesy in a Dynamic World
Celebrating 100 year anniversary of FGI
You are most warmly welcome to the General Assembly of the Nordic Geodetic Commission in Helsinki, Finland on 3.-6.9.2018. The meeting is organized by the Finnish Geospatial Research Institute FGI.
Opastinsilta 12, Pasilan virastokeskus (Semaforbron 12, Böle förvaltningscentral), next to the headquarters of the NLS and Pasila railway station. For instructions to find the place, see the link.
There is only one hotel at the walking distance to the venue, Sokos Hotel Pasila, (Maistraatinportti 3 / Magistratporten 3) at the other side of the railroad and behind the massive construction work going on at the railway station. Hotel Holiday Inn nearby at the Congress center is unfortunately under renovation during the meeting and not available. However, there are a lot of hotels at Helsinki downtown, only five minutes by train to the main railway station (a connection approximately every five minutes from Pasila). Please, use your travel agency or web services to find a suitable hotel.
