ETAPS 2012 main conferences Mon-Fri 26-30 March will take place in Swissotel Tallinn (Tornimäe 3) in the new city of Tallinn. Swissotel is at walking distance from all central hotels and the Old Town.
ETAPS 2012 satellite workshops Sat-Sun 24-25 March and Sat-Sun 31 March-1 April wil take place in the campus of the Tallinn University of Technology (TUT), in the building of the Tallinn School of Economics and Business Administration, Building X of TUT (Akadeemia tee 3). The campus of TUT is 7 kms from the city center, but easily reached by public transport.
You can get to the TUT campus by trolleybuses no. 3 (stop "Keemia", closest), no. 4 (stop "Ehitajate tee", almost as close), no. 1, 2, 5 (stop "Akadeemia tee", furthest). All these trolleybuses go every 10..15 minutes, also on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The travel time is about 25 minutes, depending on the line and where exactly you get on the trolleybus. NB. Route numbers for bus, tram and trolleybus lines overlap, so trolleybus line no. 2 is not the same as bus no. 2 or tram no. 2.
