Καθ. Παναγιώτης ΠαπαγγελόπουλοςDear Ivins Fellows and Friends,

I am very pleased to announce that the 2017 Ivins Society annual meeting will be held in my homeland, Greece.

Greece is a diverse and beautiful country, with a unique history, great architecture, delicious food, warm-hearted people and a very safe country to travel in Europe.

We have worked together with Erasmus, our trusted event planners in Athens, to compile a very interesting itinerary that will allow us to explore together the many faces of Greece. I invite you to have a look at the proposed itinerary which, I believe, offers a broad range of activities to suit everyone. Apart from the scientific program, the schedule includes a variety of social, leisure and recreational activities ensuring a thoroughly enjoyable experience for all the Ivins members and their guests who will join us in 2017.

A booking form is also included with instructions on how to secure your place for 2017 Ivins Society annual meeting.

The packages offered include special rates for families with kids.

I would encourage you to confirm your participation as soon as possible because there is limited number of rooms available at the meeting rate.

I really look forward to welcoming the Ivins family to Greece next year!

With my best wishes,

Panayiotis J. Papagelopoulos
