English is the official language of the conference.
Letter of Invitation
Upon request, the Organization Committee will be pleased to send a personal invitation to all participants, to facilitate visa and other formalities.
Access and Transportation
Macedonia International Airport in Thessaloniki (also know as Salonika) located 40 miles (60 km) from the conference venue is the main airport.
We will arrange shuttle services from/to the airport at specific times that will be announced in the web site one month prior to the conference. All delegates will be asked to send us their flight itinerary as soon as they have booked their flights in order to coordinate their transportation.
Transfer times will vary according to the scheduled arrival and departure times of the airplanes.
For those that will not be able to board on a shuttle bus (either because they arrive/depart on a different day or because they don’t want to wait for the congress bus), we have negotiated special rates for private transportation to/from the congress venue. Rates are already announced in the registration area.
Passport and Visa Requirements
Participants from a country requiring a visa for entry to Greece are advised to make their application in their home country before the intended date of travel. If in doubt, information can be obtained from your nearest Greek Embassy or Consulate. The Congress will not be responsible for these matters. The most updated visa information can be received from the web-site http://www1.mfa.gr/en/
