You may participate as stream leader, presenter of one paper, chair a session or observer. As is the case with the many small symposiums organized every week during the May-July period an effort is made to bring disciplines together such as Arts, Culture and Tourism.
Consistent with the theme of ATINER’s small academic events, all programs may include a few sessions on current topics in education and research.
Selected papers will be published in the Athens Journals of Tourism edited by Dr. Peter Jones, Professor of Management, University of Gloucestershire, U.K.
Fee structure information is available on www.atiner.gr/fees.
Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized, including a pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine-tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Mycenae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, a day trip to Delphi, and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.

The association was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.
The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER. Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).
Academically, the Association is organized into 6 Divisions, 35 Units & 8 Centers. Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.
