Hybrid Conference Announcement

Dear colleagues

In order to have a successful conference this coming July we have decided to hold the conference in a hybrid format. This will provide the opportunity for those who will be unable to travel to Rethymno to be able to participate on-line and have their paper presented and discussed. We, of course, hope to have as many participants as possible to attend the 25th ICMAIF in person and enjoy Crete at its best.

Please note that for those attending on-line there will be a reduced registration fee of 100 euro

We look forward to receiving your submission to the conference.

The Organizing Committee.

Change of ICMAIF Conference Dates

Dear Colleagues and participants

We hope that you are well and safe.

Given that the situation with COVID-19 is still although the vaccination of the population is underway we decided that the conference is moved to new dates 29-31 of July 2021 as we believe that by that time it would be feasible to hold the conference with participation in person. Please also note that the deadline for papers submission has been changed to 31 March 2021.

Stay well and we hope we see you the coming summer in Rethymno.
