Multi-Wavelength Studies of the Solar Atmosphere: Celebrating the Career of Costas Alissandrakis
September 21-24, 2015 Ioannina Greece
The conference will take place at the "Karolos Papoulias" conference Center which is located inside the University of Ioannina campus (some 6.5 km south of downtown Ioannina). The conference center can host up to 300 participants. The auditorium is equipped with all modern facilities required for a conference.
The conference's venue is easily accessible from downtown Ioannina via public transportation (bus Number 16; one bus every 10-15 minutes). The blue line in the Google map below shows the bus's way from (approximately) the Courthouse to the bus stop closest to the conference venue. From the courthouse, a 20-25-minute bus ride is required to reach University of Ioannina campus. You may locate your bus stop by checking out this map of downtown Ioannina.
After you get off the bus, your way to the conference's venue will be marked by signs prepared by the LOC. If you decide to use the bus you will have to purchase your ticket (ask for the yellow tickets: 1.5 Euros each way) in advance in one of the numerous downtown kiosks.
Alternatively you may get a taxi to get to the conference's venue from downtown
Ioannina. Estimate that you will pay around 6-7 Euros each way.
If you rent a car and you drive from downtown Ioannina, take Dodonis Avenue towards Athens and merge onto Ioannina-Athens National Road. Continue southbound until the first traffic light (there is a gas station on your right and a military camp on your left). Follow the signs to "University" and "University Hospital" and make a right turn there and after one block make a left. You are at "Stavros Niarchos Str." now (a.k.a. "Panepistimiou Str."). You follow it until you reach the intersection which is adjacent to the placemarks of the Google map.
Participants will have lunch either at the student's cafeteria or at the
"Phegos" faculty club restaurant. The student's cafeteria also
serves dinner (from 6 to 9 pm). Each meal at the student's cafeteria costs 3 Euros. At
"Phegos", prices are more expensive but still reasonable. For dinner there are several good restaurants at downtown Ioannina, and close to the Lake (ask the LOC if you are interested in).
For accommodation there is a range of options available to suit individual preferences and budgets. Participants will be expected to arrange their own accommodation and are encouraged to make hotel reservations early, as no rooms have been reserved. Please find bellow the relevant hotel booking information. The following hotels are situated near the Ioannina's center. The LOC does not endorse any particular hotel.
