Workshop Program

The room of the meeting is the "Lecture Room 1" room, located at the 1st floor of the main building (Bldg. A). Click here to see/download a sketch of the FORTH campus (also available in PDF).
As you enter the main building through its north-east entrance, go up the stairs right in front of you. After you have climbed the stairs to the first floor, turn around 180 degrees (you should now be facing a big arch-like window). The meeting room is the first room to your left, right after the stairs you just climbed.

The program of the workshop can be downloaded here, while the book of abstracts can be found here.
