THIRD CIRCULAR, April 30, 2018.

Dear ICAMErs,

ICAME 39 is fast approaching! We would like to remind you that the registration will close on May 16; we encourage all of you who have not yet registered to do so now. You may enter the registration form here (, or via the conference website.

We thank you for your co-operation in sending us the revised and proofread abstracts! The Book of Abstracts is now available on the conference website, and a printed version will be provided in the conference pack to those who requested it on the registration form. A preliminary conference programme is also available on the conference website.

On the conference website, you will find practical information regarding, for instance, finding the conference venue once you arrive in Tampere. Please also note information regarding the Speaker services where all presentations will be uploaded. In brief, we ask all presenters with full or work-in-progress papers to either have their presentation file on a USB flash drive, or send it to the conference email ( The file will be uploaded to a computer next to the registration desk, and will then be available in the session room.

All conference rooms are equipped with a computer running Windows 10; a list of software installed on the laptop is available on the conference website. If you wish to use your own computer, make sure that you bring the necessary adapters along to connect it to the data projector. If you require any special technical equipment for your presentation (e.g. loudspeakers), please let us know as soon as possible. The length of presentations will be 20 minutes plus 10 minutes discussion for full paper, and 10 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion for work-in-progress reports. Posters must be maximum A0 size, in portrait format. Presenters will introduce their posters to the conference participants during a special session on Thursday morning. The presentation must not exceed 5 minutes, and may be accompanied by a maximum of three PowerPoint slides (i.e. title slide + three content slides).

With regard to our excursions on Friday, there will be some changes to the excursion options. We will contact you if these changes concern you. Current information on the excursions will be updated soon on the conference website.

We look forward to seeing you in Tampere very soon!
