The event will be held in the amphitheater of the new CTI “Diophantus” building. The building is located in the Patras University Campus in Rio (Kazantzaki street), about 6 Km from Patras.
The CTI “Diophantus” new building is reachable from down-town Patras
1. By Patras Suburban Railway. From Patras to Kastellokampos, the first train is at 06:30 and the last at 22:30 every 60′. At the station “Kastellokampos” there is a BUS connection to reach University (the cost of the ticket is 1.40 Euros). The first bus to University is at 06:45 and the last at 22:47 every 60′. Timetable in greek
2. By taxi: ask the driver (most probably not speaking English) to take you to the university (PANEPISTIMIO). When reaching the campus, ask him to follow the street (KAZANTZAKI str.) towards the IFIGENEIA restaurant. The isolated building at the top of the hill is the building of CTI. (the cost from Patras’ center is 7-10 Euros).
3. By Bus: ask at the hotel reception to give you directions to the closest bus station for bus No. 6 going to the University (PANEPISTIMIO). You must buy a ticket before getting on the bus. Bus tickets are sold at kiosks. Get off at the first stop in the University Campus and walk along the direction of the bus. After 100m you will encounter the main crossing of the campus (you will see a small church on your right). Keep walking straight ahead (this is Kazantzaki Str.). After 900m, you will encounter the building of CTI at your left.
4. By car from down-town Patras (hotel): locate AG. ANDREOU street (second parallel street from the sea) and drive along it. At some point you will encounter a sign “National Road Patras – Athens”, follow it by turning left, and follow the similar signs (or signs to Athens or Athina) until you are on the National Road (highway) from Patras to Athens. After entering the highway, follow the signs to the University of Patras: turn tight to the second traffic light after entering the highway, left at the next crossing, and then right after about 700m (after passing the Indoors Stadium). If you haven’t miss any sign, you will cross a river at some point. After crossing the bridge, you are entering the campus. Keep driving straight ahead. Turn right at the first roundabout. At the (functioning) traffic light you have to turn left (this is the main junction of the university with a small church on your left). This is KAZANTZAKI street. Keep driving straight ahead. The isolated building at the top of the hill is the building of CTI.
