Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture (ARTS) in association with the University of Helsinki invites you to the annual conference of The Society for Cognitive Studies of the Moving Image (SCSMI) in Helsinki, June 11–14 2017.

Helsinki is easy to reach by air from anywhere in the world. There is a range of accommodation options, from from AirBnB to first class hotels. In addition to the three and half days of programmed presentations and discussions, there will be professionally interesting site visits. In June a plethora of events and sights will also attract the visitor’s attention in the lively capital city of Finland. There are also interesting possibilities to extend your trip to nearby cities, for example, visa-free visits to Tallinn, Estonia (1 ½ hours by ferry), or to St. Petersburg, Russia (4 hours by train). Participants are advised to book their travel and accommodation as early as possible for best options.

Additional information will be posted here soon.

Your SCSMI2017 hosts,
Pia Tikka and Henry Bacon
