      In the attached file you can find the places for lectures during the spring. Please note that there are many unfortunate uncertainties for the premises at the moment, but we will do our best to update this list when/if something is changing. We will also send announcements through MC immediately after we become aware of any changes. These messages will be sent automatically to your email address in the system. Please note that the course staff has no direct access to the reservation info at Sisu or MC 'Upcoming events list' and the current system does not see DF premises at all. Therefore the info there is not up to date.
