General Information: The conferences will take place at the Anogia
Academic Village, a conference center located in the traditional Cretan
village of Anogia on the slopes of mountain Ida. Anogia has an elevation
of 750 m, and is about 45 minutes by car from Heraklion, the largest city
of Crete, and about half an hour from the closest point on the north coast
of Crete. Living expenses (accommodation plus meals) during the conferences
are estimated at about 40-60 Euro per person per day. The registration fee
amounts to 250 Euro.
The European Commission supports young researchers to enable them to
participate in the conferences for training purposes. The researchers
should be nationals of the countries which are Member States of the E.U.
or Associated States, but there is also a certain amount of support
available for young researchers from other countries as well. Graduate
students are especially encouraged to participate. In general, young
researchers should have a maximum of ten years research experience
since obtaining a degree that gives them access to doctoral studies.
(Some limited funds from other sources will also be available to support
participants not belonging to the above group). The financial support
may cover all or parts of the travel, living and registration expenses.
Those interested in participating should fill out the application form
attached below and send it, along with the required information, to the
conference secretary Mrs. E. Kafatou at euroconf at math.uoc.gr . Applications
(including the requested supporting material) that will be received 4 months
before the starting date of the conference will be
given full consideration.
Queries/Questions should be directed to
