Patras - September 10th, 2004

This page is permanently enriched.
You will gradually find many information to prepare your venue

AEA regrets not to be able to support travel and accomodations of the participants. They have to book their hostels and transport themselves. However, you would find useful links and tourist informations to help you to organize your travel.


Location of the conference

The conference will take place in the campus of the Patras University.
The University campus is 7 km East of the city of Patras in the area of Rion. It was founded in 1964 and is the third largest University of the country which consists of five Schools with twenty-two Departments.


Transport :

From Patras you can join the campus of the University

By car

The University is about 8 km from the city of Patras. Coming from the centre of Patras, follow Korinthou Street to its end. Then, you should follow Panepistimiou Street and after the indoor athletic stadium "Dimitrios Tofalos" you turn on the right, following the signs.

By bus

The Number 6 bus for Rion, which leaves from the bus terminal that is located downtown, runs every ten to fifteen minutes and connects the University with the city. Since some buses go directly to the town of Rion, bypassing the campus, it is advisable to ask before boarding if the specific bus goes to Panepistimio (University).

By taxi (the best solution)

There are about one thousand taxis available in the city of Patras. Many taxis work on a 24-hour basis. You can hire a taxi at a taxi stand. Taxis can also be requested by telephone using one of the following numbers 1300, 2610 346700, 2610 450000

But you must know that the "normal" price for a direct flight (aller retour), for example from Paris or London, does not have, about scheduled flight, being higher than €250 or €300, according to the company and the selected agency.



Accomodation :

It's very difficult to make a on line registration for a room in Patras; in the best of the cases, you will have to ask before by email; it's better to phone (Phone directory in english).

We only suggest you two hotels (to try to stay together) one is in down town (but you must take a taxi or a bus to go to the conférence), the other is close to the bridge of Rion (and you can go by foot to the campus). This two hotel cost approximately 100 € by night (double).
