The conference will take place in Estonian National Museum, address Muuseumi tee 2, Tartu. Google maps link HERE

At 8:35AM, a bus from Vanemuise theatre lower parking lot will start driving to the event.

The bus will have the „11th Shallow Lakes Conference“ logo by the front window.

HERE is the Google maps link to the location of the bus parking spot.

15 minutes after the official end of the conference day, a bus will take participants back to the center of Tartu. 

It is also possible to come to the event by foot, Estonian National Museum is approximately 2km from the Center. Various ohter transportation methods can be found here:
