Instructions for Presenters

Presentation Timings:

  • For speakers: 45 minutes (~30 min talk, 15 min Q&A).
  • For thesis presenters (cohort 4): 30 minutes (~20 min talk, 10 min Q&A).
  • For poster presenters (cohort 5): During the week your posters will be displayed in the piano galleria. You should stand by your poster during the coffee breaks. On Friday you will have 5 minutes each to present a fast recap about your poster. It is recommended that cohort 5 merge one presentation with all the posters to make the most of the time allocated for this fast recaps.

No talks will be allowed to go over the time allotted, as this will be unfair on the other presenters.

Technical notes:

  • The projector resolution in room 7343.1-2 is 1280 x 720 and in the student union auditorium is 1280 x 1024. Aspect ratio is 16:9 in both rooms. We expect to have VGA and HDMI connectors in the presenting rooms. Please bring adaptors if case these connectors are not available on your laptops, or if you have an unusual setup. We’d recommend marking your personal adaptors with a sharpie or tag to avoid them getting lost.
  • Please bear in mind that we want the summer school to be as accessable as possible, so we are asking if you take account of these accessibility guidelines as you prepare your talks and materials.
  • If you have any problems or questions, please email us at or either in advance, or ask at the start of the session.


  • Please arrive at the room at least 15 min before your talk session begins so that you can meet the summer school organizers who will talk you through the session process and check your A/V. Not arriving early is likely to lead to problems, so please do come early.
  • Feel free to share any relevant materials with the other presenters e.g. A4 copies of your poster or A4 copies of a short summary of your thesis findings.

LUT Campus & Parking Spaces

Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) is a pioneering science university in Finland, bringing together the fields of science and business since 1969. Our international community is composed of approximately 6,000 students and experts engaged in scientific research and academic education. Sustainable development is a core topic accross LUT programmes and research and PERCCOM is part of these activities to build a better future. Our green campus is located near lake Saimaa – the 4th largest lake in Europe. Below you can find more information about how to get to campus and navigate the rooms where the summer school will be taking place.

Getting to LUT Campus by bus:

Local bus number 5 goes to the university from the train station (matkakeskus) via the city centre. Bus number 1 also run between the university and the city centre. You can find the time tables in this site.

Summer School Locations:

  • The events during this summer school will happen around: LUT Piano Galleria (coffee breaks and poster displays); Student union auditorium (talks monday to wednesday);Room 7343.1-2 (talks and thesis presentations on thrusday and friday), LUT Beach sauna (welcome and farewell evenings), LUT Buffet restaurant (lunches). You can find a map with all the important locations during this summer school here.

The golden rule to find any room at LUT is the following: Every building has a number e.g. 7343, the first number “7” represents the building number, the second number “3” is the floor where the room you are looking for is located and, the last two numbers “32” are the room number.

Parking spaces: We have assigned parking spaces 4 and 5 for our summer school. The parking spaces are marked in the summer school maps.

Eating near Campus

In campus there are three main restaurants open during summer:

Skinfo is a useful site that summarizes all the menus from restaurants near campus. Also, you can find bus schedules there.

How to get to Lappeenranta

Most visitors arrive via Helsinki, the capital of Finland or by a direct flight to Lappeenranta. For visitors arriving from Russia the means of arrival in Lappeenranta is often a bus or a car. Below you will find information on how to travel from Helsinki to Lappeenranta and some useful links:

To Lappeenranta via Helsinki: You will need to take a train, bus or drive to Lappeenranta. Below more details about these options.

To Lappeenranta by flight: It is possible to fly directly to Lappeenranta with Ryanair from Athens or Milan Bergamo. From the Lappeenranta airport you can take either a taxi or a bus to your accomodation.

To Lappeenranta by train: The quickest way to travel from Helsinki Airport to Lappeenranta is by train – the trip takes about 2 hours and a half. You can buy your train tickets online at VR site or at the vending machines at airport. Make sure to select “Helsinki Airport” as your departure station. Be aware that you will need to change trains in Tikkurila.

If you arrive by train from Russia, the closest station to Lappeenranta is Vainikkala. There is a bus connection from Vainikkala train station to Lappeenranta Travel Centre.
