Practical Information

Date and Place of the School

The 18th European School of High-Energy Physics will be held from 20 June to 3 July in Raseborg, Finland, about 100 km west of Helsinki. The lectures and discussion sessions will take place in the Raseborg Institute, using the institute's modern conference facilities. The location of the Institute is indicated on this map.

Institute Institute

The Institute has numerous sports and leisure facilities that will be available to the participants, including tennis and volley-ball courts, rowing boats, an indoor swimming pool, saunas and a gym. It is located on a very picturesque site beside a lake. There is a nature trail as well as walking and jogging routes.

Lake Boats

General information on Raseborg (Raasepori in Finnish; Raseborg is the Swedish name) and the surrounding area can be found on the tourist-information website. The living-in-Finland guide, primarily intended for international students and trainees, provides a lot of useful information about Finland in general and includes a survival-vocabulary section. Other useful information can be found in the web pages of the Centre for International Mobility, CIMO.

You may view the slideshow Raseborg in and out.


The students, faculty and staff of the School will be lodged in the Raseborg Institute. Students will share twin rooms with toilets and shower rooms.

The lecture hall and the rooms for the discussion sessions are also situated in the institute, which will be equipped with computing and electronic communication facilities.

Breakfast, lunch and evening meals will be served in the restaurant of the Institute. There is a bar where participants will be able to purchase drinks in the evenings.

Details concerning the method of payment of the fee will be sent together with the acceptance letters.
