The Student Group of the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Thessaly will present its new racing car at the port of Volos. Specifically, the event will take place on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at 21.00, at the port of Volos (in front of the Papastratos building).
The Centaurus team of the University of Thessaly was founded in October 2009 by 12 undergraduate students of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. The aim was to design and construct a racing car, aiming to participate in the world's largest contest for student engineers, Formula Student. Apart from the basic knowledge they had acquired from the School, the team started from scratch on this subject.
The scientific team leader is the Assistant Professor of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Mr. Alexis Karmedides.
Its history includes three car models, Chiron, Nessus, the upgraded model of Nessus, Nessus R and Thireus. Some of its important moments are:

We are honoured to invite you to join your peers and subject matter experts in EUROMAT2017, that will be held in Thessaloniki, Greece, September 17 – 22, 2017.
EUROMAT is the first international congress in the field of materials in Europe. The EUROMAT2017 congress venue will be the “Thessaloniki Concert Hall”, a unique complex of buildings conveniently located at the seafront of the city.
Thessaloniki is a vibrant and modern European city, one of the most important trade and business centres in the Balkans, with great history dating back to around 315 BC. The city is strategically situated in Macedonia, Northern Greece, and is easily accessible from all over the world. Nearby archaeological sites from the time of Alexander the Great and Roman and Byzantine times offer great opportunities for sightseeing, before or after the congress.
Thessaloniki is one of the largest student cities in South-eastern Europe and has the largest student population in Greece. The city has two state universities, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, which was founded in 1926 and is the largest University in Greece, and the University of Macedonia as well as the Technological Education Institute of Thessaloniki. It also hosts a leading Research Center, the Center for Research and Technology-Hellas (CERTH), and many private international institutions, affiliated with and/or accredited by overseas universities.
In 2017 FEMS will be 30 years old. This milestone in the history of FEMS and will be celebrated with special events in the Congress, organised to highlight this special occasion.
We look forward to seeing you in Thessaloniki in EUROMAT 2017.
Organized by the Greek Oral History Association and the Department of History, Archeology and Social Anthropology, in cooperation with the Regional Direction of Primary and Secondary Education and the City Museum of Volos, the workshop will famliarize the teachers with the production of educational scenarios related to the 1940s war period. Its aim is to create better understanding for a crucial period of Greek history, by focusing both on accurate historical documentation and written or oral personal testimonies. The workshop provides lectures and hands-on training sessions, as well as soundwalks in the city of Volos, where the participants can rediscover their city through oral testimonies about the 1940s.
21st Pan-Hellenic Conference on Informatics (PCI 2017)
The Greek Computer Society (GCS), the University of Applied Sciences of Thessaly (TEI Thessaly), the Municipality of Larissa and the University of Thessaly, organize the 21st Pan-Hellenic Conference on Informatics (PCI 2017) in Larissa, Greece, on September 28th–30th, 2017. The Pan-Hellenic Conference on Informatics is organized annually by the Greek Computer Society. It has been established as one of the most prominent forums for Greek CS scientists to present original and high-quality research on emergent topics of Computer Science.
Response of Offshore Structures subjected to significant wave loading
The efficient and cost-effective design of an offshore structure is in a great extend affected by the accurate prediction of the wave field. The prediction of the wave particle kinematics and the corresponding wave loading remains a complex topic even today. The large size and the complex nature of these structures often lead the designers to simplified solutions.
The MES 9 Conference is a forum for discussing the social, political, cultural and ethical dimensions of mathematics education. The Conference aims to bring together mathematics educators from around the world to disseminate research that explores these dimensions of mathematics education, to discuss theoretical and methodological issues related to this type of research, to foster international co-operation in the field, and to develop a strong research community interested in these dimensions. The residential nature of the conference, in which all participants reside at the same venue, is a key feature of MES conferences and is designed to encourage the development of such an interactional community. Following previous conferences that took place in Nottingham (UK, 1998), Montechoro (Portugal, 2000), Helsingør (Denmark, 2002), Gold Coast (Australia, 2004), Albufeira (Portugal, 2008), Berlin (Germany, 2010), Cape Town (South Africa, 2013) and Portland, Oregon (United States, 2015) we are now pleased to announce the 9th Mathematics Education and Society Conference (MES 9) in Volos, Greece. The MES 9 conference theme is: “Mathematics Education and Life at Times of Crisis”
The economic and political crisis worldwide affects all aspects of life including the ways people, and especially children and adolescents experience and imagine mathematics education. Mathematics, as part of life, is embedded and embodied within a variety of social institutions such as the family, the school, the playground, the place of leisure or the workplace. Social and cultural diversities, global migration, the unequal distribution of wealth, the persistence of poverty, but also the depletion of nature and the devastation of the environment, along with increased pressures for technologically mediated societal infrastructures provide a complex territory that cannot be ignored by mathematics educators working in the tertiary level, the secondary or primary and, even in early education. At the same time crisis has its most serious effects when it works at the intersections of gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, ability, social class, economic disadvantage and sustainability risk. Within this context, it is essential to re-consider mathematics education, life, and crisis as entangled and to explore, on one hand, what are the effects of the socioeconomic crisis on mathematics and mathematics education, and, on the other hand, what might be the potentialities and disorders afforded by mathematics education and mathematics education research towards confronting crisis and pursuing a life, as a relational ontology of the present. Based on the above, we would welcome theoretical and empirical contributions in the form of papers, project presentations, symposia and posters, that address and problematize the social, political, and ethical dimensions of mathematics education and mathematics education research in our lives during the current times of crisis.
From May 17th to May 19th, the 5th International Conference οn Applied Economics will be held in Volos the theme of which is “INSTITUTIONS & DEVELOPMENT”. The recent global crisis and the crisis in the Eurozone showed that the economic growth is a combination of social factors that go beyond the strict economic conditions and possibilities of each country. Recent studies and research have stressed the role of formal and informal institutions on achieving a long-term economic efficiency. The conference will take place at our new facilities, 28th October Str, 78, in Volos.
