Announcement of Changes to Venues for EPSC2024 and EPSC-DPS 2025 Joint Meeting
We learned in January that the refurbishment of the venue for the Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC) in 2024, Finlandia Hall in Helsinki, has been subject to delays and that the facility will not be available in time for our scheduled meeting in September 2024.
Over the past few weeks, we have reviewed various options, including alternative venues in Helsinki and elsewhere, that have been able to put together a quotation at very short notice. As well as the cost implications, we have also taken into consideration the commitment we made to the Helsinki LOC, whose agreement to host the meeting has already been postponed from 2021 due to the Covid pandemic and contractual obligations with the congress centre in Granada.
We have reached the decision that the best option in terms of value and facilities for the community will be as follows:
- EPSC2024 will take place at FU Berlin from 8-14 September 2024
- The Joint EPSC-DPS 2025 Meeting will take place in the newly refurbished Finlandia Hall, Helsinki from 7-13 September 2025
Before then, we look forward to seeing you at the DPS-EPSC2023 Joint Meeting in San Antonio, Texas (which will also take place as a hybrid meeting) from
The call for EPSC2026 and EPSC2027 venues will be issued later this year.
President, Europlanet Society
