Food/Dining

We decided this year to leave three evenings open for attendees to explore local tavernas and other dining options. In particular, there is no hotel meal planned for the opening evening, Tuesday, June 26, but there will be food at the reception preceding the session, so that a large post session meal may not be needed (see menus below). In addition no hotel meals are planned for Thursday, June 28 and Saturday, June 30. For Saturday the hotel has arranged an optional 'pirate ship' excursion to a deserted beach including a large midday meal, conditional on sufficient numbers of attendees signing up in advance-see below for details. On Wednesday, June 27 and Friday, June 29, there will be buffet meals at the hotel, and on Sunday July 1 there will a banquet buffet at the hotel to end the conference (see the menus below). The food and beverage choices are indicated below on the menus, as are the prices (that will be added to the hotel bill for the attendees). The food and drink offerings at the session openings and the session breaks are paid for from the participants registration fees (as is a subsidy for the final banquet).


BEACH OUTING AND BBQ LUNCH

Optional excursion for the day of Saturday, June 30.

Departure from the hotel will be about 9:00-9:30 AM, and the return will be by 3:30 PM. The excursion will include transport from the hotel to the port and return, transport from the port to a deserted Kalymnos beach on a traditional wooden pirate-type boat, and a beach BBQ lunch. The transport time from hotel to beach should total about 1.5 hours each way.

The BBQ lunch will offer fresh grilled fish and grilled octopus, 3 different salads, souvlaki and fruits, and will include wine, beer, soft drinks and mineral water.

Total price, inclusive, for this excursion is Euro 52/person. The excursion will be offered only if at least 30 people sign up in advance (in order to book the boat).

Please call or email the hotel to let them know how many in your group will be joining the beach outing. Please do this soon and no later than April 15, so the boat can be reserved.

The excursion date has switched from Thursday to Saturday. If you were already signed up, please let the hotel know whether or not you are still OK for the Saturday date. At last count, there was a need for two more people to sign up to enable the tour to take place. Please contact the hotel directly to confirm and make plans.
