It is the tradition of MEDECOS not only
to be a high quality Scientific Conference, but a forum of warm Mediterranean
social events too.
Organization of several events
was the following:
A welcome reception at the Medieval City of Rodos (www.culture.gr)
on Monday 26th of April.
A mid-Conference field excursion
to sites of interest in Rhodes: visit to the mountainous ridges of Attavyros with
Pinus brutia and Cupressus sempervirens forests, driving along extended sand
dunes at the west coast down to the southernmost edge of the island at
Prassonisi and Tombolo with the marvelous green-blue sea (see the attached
of Rhodes). Heading back to Ixia (Rodos Palace Hotel) we followed the east
coast and we stopped for a visit at the ancient acropolis of Lindos (www.culture.gr).
A snack buffet to accompany
MEDECOS traditional wine tasting contest at a beautiful spot of Rodos Palace
Convention Center on Tuesday 27th of April.
A Farewell Gala Dinner
evening of Thursday 29th of April.
