Dinner on Saturday

We are arranging a dinner for Saturday for those who want to go and eat together. We’re going to the restaurant Nautical (by the Nautical museum and the museum ship Pommern), and the dinner starts at six.

If you are on the members e-mail list, you have already received a link to the signup form. If not, please contact <acon@sci.fi> and we’ll send you the link. Act now — you need to sign up by Saturday the 19th.

Although the hotel booking deadline has passed, it’s still possible to reserve a room for the discounted Åcon price — the hotel has released the rest of the rooms to the public, but they promised to give Åcon members the agreed discount while there are rooms available. So if you’re still thinking about coming, act now!

Member Count

The current member count for Åcon 2 is 75.

You can still sign up to become a member, but act fast. The hotel room quota was released on March 31, so the rooms will probably go quite fast. If you’d still like to reserve a ferry trip through us, please contact us as soon as possible, to see if it’s still possible to get the group prices from the ferry company.

Book GoH Makes a Comeback

Åcon 2 has a book Guest of Honour. Our choice for a book that’s singled out for praise and examination is Dan Simmons’s Hyperion (which was also the book GoH of Åcon 1, but got sidetracked due to a scheduling snafu). So this might be a good time to read (or re-read to refresh your memory) the book in time for May!

The hotel is telling us that the rooms are being booked faster this year than last year. While we expect the room block that we have reserved to be enough, we are no longer certain of it, so we advise everyone who wants to be sure of getting a room at the hotel to follow the instructions on the Hotel info page and book now.

As mentioned elsewhere, reservations close on March 30 and any remaining rooms will be released back to the hotel.
