General information 


The official conference language is English. No translation/interpretation services will be offered.




In emergency situations, you can contact the local police, ambulance service, fire department and other emergency services by calling 112, free of charge.

Medical services 

Should you need to see a doctor or a dentist, we recommend contacting your hotel’s reception desk who will direct you to the medical professionals assigned to the hotel. If immediate medical attention is required, call the emergency services at 112. Emergency medical services (including transportation by ambulance) are not free and you will be billed for any services rendered.


Vaccination certificates are usually not needed when travelling to Greece, but please check with your local embassy as requirements may change.

International dialing code 

Greece: +(30)


The standard electrical voltage in Greece is 230 volts AC, 50Hz (hotel bathrooms may also have outlets for 100 volts). The electrical sockets in Greece are Type F, so they take Type F and Type C plugs (two-pronged, round-pin plugs). We recommend that you purchase an adaptor for your electrical equipment prior to your arrival.


Tap water is safe to drink in Athens.

ATMs & credit cards 

ATMs are widely available throughout Athens. Most central stores accept all major credit and debit cards, however some smaller stores may only accept cash.
