Ouzo Dinner



Monday, September 7, 2009




Excursion to Vergina, Monastery of Timios Prodromos, Aristotle School and dinner at the town of Naousa


Tuesday, September 8, 2009






During the entire workshop there will be space for poster presentations.


* Important Information about the Round Tables


1. During the first round table of each scientific session, there will be a 5-minutes oral presentation for every scientific proposition for collaboration. Then, all propositions will be discussed during the round table.
2. The scientific propositions for collaboration, which will evolve during the workshop, will be discussed among the participants of the round table. Then, they will be written in one page and they will be given to the coordinators of each scientific session. The coordinators will continue the discussion on these new propositions with all interested colleagues. Then, these propositions will be posted on a bulletin board by the coordinators. The participants who are interested in participating in any of the proposed projects must enter for them to the registration desk. For each project, the final list with the names of participants will be given to the coordinators.
3. All propositions and the list of colleagues, who will participate to a certain project, will be announced by the coordinators, during the last round table of the workshop.
4. The coordinators will be in charge for the realization of the propositions, until the next workshop, which will be held after two years.
