Due to high temperatures in Athens, the Welcome Reception has been moved to Eleftheria Park.

Welcome Reception - Eleftheria Park - Wednesday, 19:00-21:30

To go to Eleftheria Park exit the Megaron, walk back toward the metro station, turn right at the end of the block and follow Evzonon street all the way to the Welcome Reception! Alternately, you can cut across the lawn adjacent to the Megaro, and walk all the way to the back of the park.


The menu will include finger-food with traditional Greek flavors, chiiled ouzo, masticha liquer and refreshing lemonade. If you are feeling adventurous, ask to try our "Greek mojito"!

Social Event - Academy of Athens - Thursday, 20:00-22:00

To reach the Academy of Athens from the Megaron Conference Center take the metro from the Megaro Moussikis station toward Aghia Marina. Get off at the Syntagma Square station and switch to the red line going toward Anthoupoli. (Alternately you can walk the path shown by the dotted line in the map below.)

Travel one stop and get off at Panepistimio station and follow the exit signs that say “National Library / Akademia,” then go right toward “Akademia.” When you go upstairs, the Academy of Athens will be in front of you on the right and there will be conference assistants there to direct you.


The menu will include a souvlaki station (gyro!), loukoumades with honey or chocolate, and excellent Averof wine.


Conference Dinner - Ecali Club - Friday, 20:30-23:30

No directions needed! We have arranged for buses to depart from the Megaron Conference Venue and take you straight to the Ecali Club. Buses depart between 19:15 and 19:45. Take an early bus and relax. You will be greeted by a cold welcome drink to chase away the heat, and then you are invited to take in the lush greenery, soft lighting and music as you enjoy your dinner.
