During the conference special symposia covering major areas of research activity organized by members of the Scientific Advisory Board will take place.

The attendees of ICTAEM_2 will have the opportunity to interact with the most outstanding world leaders and get acquainted with the latest developments in the area of mechanics. ICTAEM_2 will be a forum of university, industry and government interaction and exchange of ideas in an area of utmost scientific and technological importance.

I am sure that besides the superb technical program, you will enjoy the majestic town of Corfu with its unique beaches and scenic beauty, many areas of historical interest and archeological importance, the delicious local cuisine, and the traditional Greek hospitality.

Corfu is a cosmopolitan island of rich multi-cultural heritage, where the Venetians, the French and the British used to live with historic monuments, spectacular natural landscape, lovely beaches with crystal clear waters.

Watch the cricket matches played on the Spianada, the only place in Greece where the sport is played.

We are looking forward to an exciting event from the scientific, social and entertainment points of view.

Welcome to Corfu, the island where a shipwrecked Odysseus sought refuge from the storms and met Princess Nausicaa, who brought him to the  Phaeacian Palace and her father King Alkinoos gave him a ship to go safely back to Ithaca.
