It is our great pleasure to invite you to our comprehensive practical workshop of diagnosing and managing patients with intracranial gliomas. Our workshop aims to cover all aspects of gliomas, from their genetic analysis and profiling, to the most advanced surgical resection techniques, the long-term follow-up and support of these patients. An astonishing multi-national faculty, including leading figures in the field of neuro-oncology, assures that the participants will be able to familiarize themselves with all advanced imaging and surgical techniques utilized for the most efficient and safe management of patients with intracranial gliomas. A well-balanced combination of vivid presentations, stimulating debates, highly-didactic video sessions, and practical hands-on approaches will ensure that each participant will be exposed to all diagnostic methodologies, the latest surgical strategies, and the most recent adjuvant treatment protocols. Moreover, the interactive e-poster session will serve as a forum for exchanging bright new ideas regarding basic science, translational and clinical glioma research. The event is hosted in the hospitable city of Larissa, where Hippocrates practiced medicine and spent his last days. Larissa is located in the heart of the Greek mainland, less than an hour from the mythical Mt. Olympus, the unique Meteora monasteries and Pelion, the mountain of Centaurus. It is also conveniently connected to the spectacular islands of Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonissos. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Larissa in April 2017 and making this an unforgettable experience for you.

The University of Thessaly, in the context of the EU PATHWAYS Project (Grant Agreement: n. 663474), is organizing an International Seminar / Working Group on April 27th, 16.00-18.00, at the Tsalapatas Multimedia Center in Volos, Thessaly, Greece. The topic of the Seminar is the (re)integration of people with chronic diseases and mental health issues in the labour market and the promotion of relevant strategies and policies at a national and a European level.
The International Seminar / Working Group is organized by the scientific coordinator of the Greek Partner (i.e. the University of Thessaly), Professor Vlachou Anastasia (Special Education Department, UTH).
The aim of the Working Group is to identify and discuss the challenges and the barriers that people with chronic diseases encounter during the (re)integration into the labour market as well as to propose strategies/recommendations that contribute to the development of inclusive working environments.
Representatives from 10 European countries, the World Health Organization, the International Labour Organization as well as representatives from national, local, and regional stakeholders from Greece will participate in the Working Group.
PATHWAYS (PArticipation To Healthy Workplaces And inclusive Strategies in the Work Sector) is a 3-year EU Project that contributes to the “Development of innovative approaches to promote the professional (re)integration of people with chronic diseases and improve their employment status”. The increasing rate of chronic diseases and mental health issues as well as the current economic crisis intensify the challenges related to employment (re)integration of people with chronic diseases and mental health issues. These challenges require call for action, at a national and a European level, in order to develop innovative strategies that promote a more inclusive labour market.

The University of Cincinnati archaeological excavations at the Palace of Nestor, Pylos resumed on May 18, 2015for the first time since 1969. During the course of the campaign, the so-called grave of the "Griffin Warrior" was discovered a few hundred meters from the Palace. This presentation will describe the excavation of this remarkable grave and discuss in detail the four gold rings found therein. The discovery of four gold rings in association with the male individual was unexpected and unprecedented. The iconography of these rings is extraordinary and of great significance for the study of Minoan and Mycenaean ideology in the early Late Bronze Age.This unique, undisturbed burial affords an unparalleled opportunity to examine aspects of Early Mycenaean funerary ritual, gender association with grave goods, and burial structure that cannot be obtained through more standard multi-individual burial contexts.

This lecture has three main objectives:

(1) To discuss basic ideas, limitations and physical laws involved in modeling complex offshore structures as single freedom degree systems
(2) To quantify the important environmental forces, except for wave action, that occur offshore and show how these forces interact with structures and
(3) To illustrate the modeling of structural mass, stiffness and structural restraint forces of guy wires and soil foundations.

Emphasis will be given on the 1st step in dynamic engineering analysis, i.e on the formulation of the structural equations of motion, while wave actions as well as solutions for structural motions, both deterministic and stochastic, are considered known or at least easily approachable.
