The workshop is the ninth in a series of workshops, initiated in 1994, which has jointly been organized by The University of Ioannina, The University of Patras, The National Technical University of Athens, The University of Thessaly and the Hellenic Open University.
The scientific program of the workshop is based on plenary presentations by the speakers, with some of the allocated time reserved for in-depth discussion. Distinguished scientists from abroad will be invited to participate in the workshop and present topics on their recent work.
The workshop will provide a scientific forum for further development and research and will aim to bring together senior and young scientists to establish new bonds that will bring forward our understanding, and promote technologically successful applications. Greek scientists living and working abroad will also be offered the opportunity to establish or reinforce links with both academia and various research communities in Greece.
