We have the privilege to invite you to the satellite meeting in Turku August 8-9, 2012 under the theme Library's Efficiency, Impact and Outcomes - Statistical Evaluation and Other Methods as Tools for Management and Decision-making.
Welcome to Turku - the oldest university town in Finland!
Turku is the oldest university town and the former capital of Finland. For centuries the city of Turku has functioned as a gateway between Finland and rest of Europe - a gateway through which knowledge, culture and modern ideas have spread throughout the country. Today Turku is a modern academic town with charm of the past times.
The city has grown on the banks of the river Aura in Southwest Finland. At summertime the riversides form a common living room for everyone to share. Along the river are located the old centre, harbour and most of the attractions like the cathedral and the castle, as well as several hotels, cafes and restaurants. The city has a rich cultural life with music festivals, fine museums and art galleries. Turku is also a city where nature is always near. It is surrounded by thousands of islands: the beautiful archipelago. At the time of the congress in August the weather is usually pleasant with warm days and dark nights.
We welcome you to Turku and look forward to meeting you all!
