Social Program

Monday, September 5, 19:30 - 21:00 Welcome Reception and Demo Night

Location: Erotokritos Lounge, Porto Platanias Hotel

The welcome reception at the Erotokritos lounge of the Porto Platanias Hotel will allow for informal interaction among FPL participants, together with demonstrations from European Union Projects and industrial demonstrations. The Demo night was organized by Prof JoãoCardoso (U. Porto) and Prof. Cristina Silvano (Politecnico di Milano) and will include demonstrations of the five EU projects which will be presented on the Wednesday afternoon EU Projects Workshop (after FPL), as well as demonstrations and booths from the FPL industrial sponsors.

There will be plenty of good Cretan wine and snacks, and the idyllic environment by the seaside (the Erotokritos lounge is a few feet away from the sea) will certainly offer a good opportunity for informal interaction.

Tuesday, September 6, 21:00 Gala Dinner

The FPL 2011 Gala dinner will be held at the Nychterida Restaurant, overlooking Souda Bay and the Lefka Ori mountain range. The dinner will be based on traditional Cretan cuisine and refined gourmet tastes using local herbs and spices; in its course Cretan dances will be presented, in traditional costume. Bus transportation from/to the Conference Venue will be provided.

Please note that bus transportation will be provided from the FPL venue, Porto Platanias Hotel to the Nychterida Restaurant, at 8:00pm.


In addition to the FPL social program, there are numerous opportunities for sightseeing in the nearby area and Crete in general. During the conference we will have a full-time travel agent to help you plan for additional activities. Many of these activities, excursions, and conveniences such as car rental are described in the "Travel and Accomodation" section of this FPL 2011 site.
