Dear EUSIPCO 2017 Participants,
After the recent earthquake that occurred in Kos island, we would like to inform you that no damages were made in modern buildings, including our conference venue as well as the hotels. Modern buildings have been built under modern construction regulations and had no problems. Damages were reported to some of the old buildings mainly situated in parts of the old city.
Thus, based on official and accurate statements from all government and Municipality bodies, Kos has withstood the earthquake.
“The island is safe. Tourists can continue their holidays and residents can continue their lives” .
Life in Kos is already coming back to normal, and we hope to see all of you there end of August.
Petros Maragos and Sergios Theodoridis
