Travel and Local Accommodations


The best way to reach the conference venue from the airport is by taxi. The ride is about 15 minutes and the cost may range from 12-17 Euros. Please ask to be brought to the "American Farm School". At the college gate, tell the guard that you are for the mathematics conference and someone will come to check you in. (Please don't forget to ask for a receipt from the taxi for reimbursement!)

Directions to Perrotis College can be found here


On Thursday afternoon, we will be visiting Vergina, the site identified as the capital of the Kingdom of Macedon. We will be leaving by bus after lunch, at about 2, and we will visit the archeological site and the museum.

For Friday evening, we have planned a guided tour of Thessaloniki. The bus will leave after the end of the talks at about 4. The tour will be aimed at an overall impression of the city, its life and history.

ARRIVAL DATE: Sunday, July 13, 2014

DEPARTURE DATE: Saturday, July 19, 2014

Accommodation (6 nights) and meals will be provided at Perrotis College and, for invited participants, will be paid for using support from Foundation Compositio Mathematica, Clay Mathematics Institute and the National Science Foundation. The conference will also have some funding for travel to Thessaloniki. However, we would greatly appreciate it if participants with their own funding would consider using it so that as many junior participants as possible can be supported.


Airfare for Summer 2014 looks as if it will be rather expensive. Please try to make plane reservations at your earliest convenience. Two sites which aggregate flights to find cheapest fares are:


There will be a buffet-style welcome dinner organized on Sunday night and a breakfast before departure on Saturday morning.


The City of Thessaloniki page maintains a list of events, museums, sights, etc.
