Update: The Dies Medievales conference will be held in hybrid format

The COVID situation shows signs of improvement, and restrictions are being lifted. We are confident that the 2022 Dies Medievales conference can be organized on-site, but as the situation remains uncertain, the conference will be hosted in hybrid format.

All conference sessions will take place in the facilities of the University of Turku, and we will observe the COVID instructions of the university.

Conference participants now have the option to attend either on-site or online using remote connections. All rooms are equipped for presentations delivered online.

The registration form has been updated with a new field: “I will participate in the conference: online”. If you are planning to participate using remote connections only, please pick this option.

If you have already registered and wish to participate using remote connections: please inform us of your choice by 18 February at the latest (diesmedievales2021@utu.fi) to help us keep up to date with venue bookings and technological requirements. By default we will assume that everyone who has registered thus far will be attending the conference on-site. Switching to online attendance because of illness or exposure to the coronavirus will, of course, be possible at a short notice.

The conference fee remains the same for online and on-site participants. The dinner will take place as planned unless restrictions placed on restaurants prevent it. We will confirm the status of the dinner based on the situation of 18 February. In the event that the dinner will have to be cancelled due to the COVID situation, all dinner payments will be refunded.

We wish to welcome all speakers and conference participants to Turku in early March. We are striving to organize a safe conference while providing a meeting place for all researchers in the field of medieval studies in Finland.
