Travel options from the International Airport of Athens and from the city of Athens to Patras can be found here. The local organizers suggest the following for those who will fly into Athens:

You can travel to Patras from Athens Airport either by train (proastiakos), or by bus. We suggest the second. After you get your luggage and get out of the airport, next to the taxis, there are buses. You board bus X93 (Athens Airport Express for Kifisos, 24 hour service, running every 35-40 minutes) and get off at the bus station at KIFISOS. The ride lasts about an hour. There you get a bus for Patras. That ride lasts about 2 hours and 45 minutes. The total cost for both tickets is about 20 Euros.

Conference Venue

Registration and all talks will take place at the University of Patras, Mathematics and Biology Building, Room 62. Please see the Campus map.
