The ICTRS sessions will be held at Rodos Palace Convetion Center. Rodos Palace constitutes the finest deluxe resort complex on the beautiful Greek island of Rhodes, being ideally located within 4 km from the city of Rhodes. Once in the city, a visitor would be amazed at the diversity of attractions around: (i) Less than 3 km away is the Upper Acropolis of Ancient Rhodes, where are several important ancient monuments, including the temple of Pythian Appolo, the Theater, and the Stadium, all dating back to 2nd century B.C. (ii) Just in the city is the Medieval Town - there (inside the walls) live approximately 6000 residents who are lucky to enjoy the spirit of Rhodes’ unique history, reflected not only in the ruins of the Church of Our Lady of Chora but also in all monuments featuring different periods in the island’s history, including the Byzantine period, the Roman period, the six centuries of the Knights of St. John, the Turkish occupation, the Italian liberation, the British presence, and so on. (iii) Next to the Medieval Town is Mandraki, the harbor of ancient Rhodes beyond which is the New Town, dominated by Kyprou Square, where are to be found some of the finest boutiques in Rhodes, jewellery stores, fabric shops, modern restaurants / cafes and branches of nearly all banks presented on the island. (iv) At the same time, visitors may also enjoy some beautiful beaches around, including the two small beaches in the city and the 5 km of golden sand and crystal-clear waters of Faliraki which is less than 15 km away. Hence, the beautiful city of Rhodes is the ideal starting point in exploring this “Paradise Island” which is also known as the Emerald isle, the Isle of Dreams, the Isle of Roses, and which is associated with myths and legends. This for sure will stimulate participants for an inspiring and productive scientific event.
