Location and Venue
ICTPI will take place on the Greek island of Santorini (Thera
or Thira). The unique combination of natural beauty, local culture,
good infrastructure and facilities, a rich 3,500-long history, plus vivid mythical
references (the island is one of the possible sites of the lost Atlantis) are
expected to create ideal conditions for inspired talks and fruitful discussions.
More information about Santorini, including maps and photos, can be found at
other dedicated Internet sites (http://www.thira.gr/,
The meeting venue will be the PETROS M. NOMIKOS Conference Center,
located in Fira, the island’s capital, 15-min away from the local airport, and
overlooking the caldera of the Santorini volcano.
For more information on the venue, please visit its website (http://www.thera-conferences.gr/).
Center also hosts the public exhibition site of the famous “Wall Paintings
of Thera”; these are 3-D, life-sized photographic reproductions of
the Bronze-age original archaeological finds at the Akrotiri area of the island,
depicting everyday life and religious activities in a flourishing cosmopolitan
society and economy 3,000+ years ago.
A preview of your visit to this exhibition, including photos of the exhibits
is possible at the respective website (http://www.therafoundation.org/wallpaintingexhibition/).
