Registration

Practical Information 

Meeting venue
The meeting will take place at Lefkippos Tech Park, which is situated within the campus of NCSR Demokritos (Patr. Gregoriou E & 27 Neapoleos Str, 15341 Agia Paraskevi). You should reach the main gate at Demokritos and personnel will provide guidance so as to walk to Lefkippos.

Please use Google Maps (insert route to National Center For Scientific Research Demokritos) – it provides all possible ways to get to the meeting venue via public transport depending where you are coming from.

From the city centre you would take Metro Line 3 (stop at Nomismatokopeio) and then use bus 406, 407 B5 (bus stop across the street from the metro station) and stop at Demokritos (also can be used form the center of Athens).

Choice of accommodation
The centre of Athens will be the best choice as there are no hotels close to the meeting venue. If you would like to choose an airbnb (or similar type of accommodation) you cool look into Agia Paraskevi or Cholargos areas. Also Psyrri or Syntagma areas (in the centre) are convenient, as the metro is close.
