Category b: The presentation of original academic Papers of 20 mins. duration (i.e. a maximum of seven typed pages, double-spaced, and page coverage 16 x 20).

The Organising Committee hopes to cover the cost of board and accommodation for Invited Speakers during the Conference. However, the Organizing Committee reserves the right to provide up to 30 min. of speaking time to members of the Conference whose expenses will not be covered as Invited Speakers. Moreover, in keeping with a standard principle of the IAGP, every endeavour will be made to ease the financial burden of Speakers at the Conference.

Conference participants who are coming to the Conference for the first time are advised that cancellations cause major logistical, scheduling and economic problems for the organization of an international conference of this scope. Outings, receptions and other activities are seriously disrupted by cancellations and schedule changes. We ask that only those who are certain of their attendance submit the forms for participation.
The Conference attempts to achieve the spirit of Hellenic philosophy as a way of life and consequently tries to include many activities whose purpose is to enrich participants with exposure to Greek culture, both ancient and modern, and to an environment where discourse may occur with the warmth of hospitality, friendship and intervals of relaxation and feasts.
The Conference includes simultaneous translation to facilitate communication among the participants.
Conference sessions are scheduled for 8:30 - 13:30 (morning session) and 17:00-20:00 (afternoon / evening session). This allows participants plenty of free time to enjoy swimming in the beautiful waters of the Aegean, or to enjoy the wonderful Mediterranean atmosphere and hospitality that the conference locale offers.
Further details concerning the organisation of the Conference will be given in the Second Circular, which will be sent to all those expressing a wish to participate in the Conference and who have already sent their PARTICIPATION FORM No1.
