Social Events

We tried to enhance the 25th edition of EUSIPCO 2017 program with events that will expose our participants and their accompanying friends and family members, to the Greek traditions and life style. You will have the opportunity to join the EUSIPCO bicycle run, learn how to cook Tzatziki salad, mousaka, and baklava, learn how to dance popular Greek dances – Zorba the Greek is one of them, enjoy Greek folklore dances during the Welcome Reception, participate in the "Greek Glenti" during our Conference Banquet, and attend a sophisticated Concert with tenor singer Alexandra Gravas.  Mark your calendars and don’t miss out on any of them!

We don’t need to be cycling champions to participate, have fun and share with EUSIPCO colleagues this entertaining stroll by the sea. Police will ensure our safety all along the way and at the end of the "race" we will be welcomed by the Deputy Mayor of Kos, Mr. Elias Sifakis. Water and lemonade will be offered and we will encapture the whole tour and arrival at the end with lots of photos and video.

Promoting bicycling for a healthier life style
Exploring the island on a bicycle has become the new active way for many visitors to enjoy their time in Kos.
Nowhere is bicycling more popular than the island of Kos as much of it is fairly flat, especially in the island’s northern coastal plain. Special cycle lanes have been created in Kos Town and between the area of Psalidi where our conference venue lies and along the north coast to the holiday centres of Tingaki and Marmari.

Time: 18:10-20:00
Location: Along the coast, to Kos city centre (distance: 3 km)
