Honoring the memory of C. Caratheodory (1873-1950)
June 5-9, 2000 - Pythagorion, Samos, Greece


Samos is one of the eastern islands of the Aegean archipelago and can be reached:

There are two air carriers on the line Athens-Samos: Olympic Airways and Air Manos. Olympic uses its own air terminal in Athens; all other companies use another terminal. So if your trip uses Olympic in combination with another company, you will have to change terminals. There is a convenient bus shuttle between the two terminals.  Usual taxi fares are exhibited near the taxi station. The usual fare for a trip from the airport to the city center in Athens is 2500 drachmas. You should add 300 drachmas to the price indicated on the taximeter for each trip to or from an airport or the port. Boats to Samos leave the Piraeus port usually around 4-5 pm and arrive to the Samos port around 7 am.

The Conference will be held inside Doryssa hotel, situated very near the Samos airport (about 1,5 km). If you come by plane, you may take a taxi to reach your hotel . The Samos port is at a distance of about 13 km from the Doryssa hotel. You can use a taxi or a bus to Pythagorion, but the bus stops are not near the hotels or the port, so taxi is recommended.
