Next year's Worldcon is running from Wednesday to Sunday. I've never been to a Finnish con before - would I be right to assume that I won't miss too much if I arrive some time on Wednesday and leave Sunday afternoon/evening?

This year's Worldcon was also Wednesday to Sunday, and I'd guess they'll follow a similar timetable. The con didn't really start till noon on Wednesday and the closing ceremony was 16:00 on the Sunday, with a dead dog party in the evening.

But I'm certainly not going to go to Helsinki just for the days of the con.

Depending on hotel prices I might do a day or two either side, but it's going to have to be fairly cheap.

After what I spent going to and staying in Kansas City, it's going to be a cheap(er) Worldcon for me. :-)

I'm hoping they'll be offering student accommodation or something which should make it more affordable.

I don't know: it's bad form to leave before it's Finnish!
