About the venue

Cyprus is a beautiful island, the third largest in the Mediterranean Sea, with an excellent climate and natural beauty. The island has been at the crossroads of history for millennia and hosts a wealth of archaeological findings from the pre-historic, ancient Greek, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Medieval times. Today, the Republic of Cyprus is member of the European Union with a population of around 700,000. The island serves the whole of the Eastern Mediterranean as a service, conference and business center.

Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus, is a rather small city of 200,000 people with excellent services, infrastructure and organization. The city is 47 km away from Larnaca International Airport, which provides daily connections to international destinations such as London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Vienna, Athens, Tel Aviv, Moscow, Italy (Rome or Milan), Thessaloniki, Cairo, Bahrein. There are weekly connections to Paris, Brussels, Manchester, Warsaw, Bucharest, etc.

The technical sessions of the conference will be held at Hotel Hilton Cyprus. More details about accomodation and the session rooms may be found at Hilton Cyprus.
