The conference website, registration and programme, as well as a selection of hotels are online. Early Bird Fee open until 10 April. Contributions for the ECOMM Video Clip Contest can be submitted from 16 April until 8 May.


Technopolis in an ancient city

In walking distance from the Acropolis, the Technopolis City of Athens will be the conference venue. It links culture, science, industrial and ancient history and is thus fitting for the hosting organisations – the Municipality of Athens and the Universities of Thessaloniki and Piraeus.

Excursions, tours, keynote speakers and speakers from Greece, the evening programme as well as a special “Greet the Greeks” session will provide ample opportunity to discover new aspects of Athens and Greece.

The organisation team has arranged a programme with over 100 speakers. In the programme click on icons to see programme details
