4–7 September 2022
Welcome to Tampere!
On behalf of the local organizing committee, we warmly invite you to attend Computing in Cardiology 2022 to be held on September 4-7, 2022, in Tampere, Finland. It will be the very first time the conference will be hosted in Finland and the third time in Northern Europe, after Linköping 1985 and Lund 1997.
The city of Tampere is dynamic, international, and easily accessible. It is located in the Pirkanmaa region, in the western part of Finland, only 180 km far from the Finnish capital Helsinki. The city hosts Tampere University (TAU), the new University born in 2019 by the merger of the old Tampere University of Technology and the University of Tampere. Together with the Tampere Univesity of Applied Sciences (TAMK), TAU represents the most international university community in Finland, having more than 30,000 students every year.
The Tampere location is quite evocative. Founded in 1775 by King Gustav III of Sweden between the two lakes Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi, Tampere has in its core the Tammerkoski rapids linking the lakes and used as the source of energy for one of the first industrial plants in the country, the Finlayson textile factory, established in 1820. In 1882 the first electric light was lit in Finlayson, making Tampere the fifth city in the world to have electric light. Almost 140 years later, Tampere is now the central hub for ICT companies in Finland.
The conference venue is located in Tampere city center in Tampere Hall (Tampere-talo), the largest congress center in the Nordic countries. Tampere Hall is only 500 meters far from the railway and bus stations, and most of Tampere’s hotels are just a 5-15 minute walk away.
The organizing committee is working hard to organize an exciting and enjoyable meeting, and it welcomes you to one of the most exciting cities in Finland!
