The annual Center of Excellence Seminar in Kuopio 27.-29.11.2018

The annual Center of Excellence Seminar is held in Kuopio 27th–29th November. This seminar is the basis for the Scientific Advisory Board set by the Academy of Finland to evaluate our work, but most of all it is a great chance to tell the others what are your latest results. Everyone should submit an extended abstract and Research Highlights of 3–5 sentences for the seminar. Deadline for abstract submission and registration is 26th October.


We hope that many of you would attend the seminar. Register via e-form by 26th October:

Please notice that also those who cannot attend the seminar are expected to make an abstract of their latest work. Find an abstract template here. The abstracts should be 2–4 pages long and submitted in pdf-form. Please follow the template carefully as we will not edit your abstracts after submission. The abstracts will be published online in FAAR Report Series. Name your abstract file “Lastname_Initial_CoE2018” and research highlights file “Lastname_Initital_Highlights_CoE2018”

Also Research Highlights of 3–5 sentences (and one figure if wanted) should be submitted as a separate file. Find a Research Highlight template here.

Dead line for submitting abstracts and research highlights is 26th October. Send them to via e-form:

Due to active registration (nice!), we will accommodate in two different hotels. In hotel Savonia (Sammakkolammentie 2) and in Scandic Atlas (Haapaniemenkatu 22). See attached in which hotel I have booked a room for you and who is your roommate (not relevant for senior scientists). Please check the dates for your room booking. If you have registered, but cannot attend, please inform This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. as soon as possible. Seminar dinner will be on Wednesday evening in hotel Scandic Atlas.


Find the programme here. Please check if you have an oral presentation in the programme. Normal talks are 12 + 3 minutes, so you should aim to spare 3 minutes for questions/discussions. The presentations written in bold in the programme are 20 + 5 minutes long. If the title of your talk is still missing, please send it to me as soon as possible. The final programme will be sent later.

Posters should be printed and brought along. The size for the posters is A0. Materials needed to attach the posters will be available in Kuopio.
