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.

On Wednesday, March 8th, at 6 pm, at the Amphitheatre of the Department of Planning and Regional Development of the University of Thessaly, an interdisciplinary workshop will take place on the subject of "Forest Maps, Problems and Prospects". The aim of the interdisciplinary workshop is to inform scientists, involved in Forest Maps (engineers, foresters, agronomists, lawyers, notaries), and to provide them with the opportunity to discuss problems and to pose their questions, so that they can work together in an optimal way for the owners’ benefit. The workshop was organized by the Forestry Department of Magnesia, the Department of Planning and Regional Development - University of Thessaly, the Technical Chamber of Magnesia, the Geotechnical Chamber of Greece - branch of Central Greece, the Bar Association of Volos, the Notarial Association of the Court of Appeal of Larissa, the Agricultural Association of Magnesia, and the Association of Agronomists- Landscape Engineers of Magnesia.

The Postgraduate Studies Programme “Science of education: Special Education" and the Laboratory of Learning, Speech and Communication Impairments of the Department of Special Education of the University of Thessaly, in collaboration with the field of Neuropsychology of the Hellenic Psychological Society, co-organise the “Neurosciences, Education and Special Education” conference, which will be held on Wednesday March 8 2017, at 16:00, in the Kordatos amphitheatre, at the University of Thessaly, in Volos.

The scope of the conference is the recent findings in the field of neurosciences, which can be applied in various fields of education and special education in particular. Distinguished speakers from five institutions of Higher Education will take part in the conference, explicating subjects concerning the existing reality in the field of education in general, and in the field of special education specifically. All proposals during the first part of the conference aim to showcase ways in which neuroscientific research can shed light on how to gain a better understanding of the significantly complex processes that support the learning development and answer all questions related to the repercussions of brain research in everyday life and education. During the second part of the conference, all speeches aim to present ways in which knowledge resulting from the field of neuroscience has contributed to the well-rounded comprehension of the causes of developmental disorders, to better depict the characteristics of these people, and to pave the way for the early detection, accurate diagnosis, and early educational intervention for students with special educational needs.

 

Athens 9-11/3/2017

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great anticipation and excitement that I extend on behalf of the organizing committee a cordial invitation to all of you to join the 9th International Congress of Internal Medicine which will be held this year on March 9-11, 2017 in Athens, Greece.This is a major annual event in Greece attended nationally and internationally by upwards of 600-700 attendees from all over the country and European countries and with the active participation of established international scientists and experts.The last years the organizing and scientific committee has been focusing on a single goal: hopefully to make this congress an important scientific event beyond the Greek borders, open to friendships and collaborations, that will gain worldwide warm acceptance and recognition for its scientific merit. The success of the past congresses shows us that we walk on the right path towards this goal, enhances our passion and willingness for continuing this educational undertaking.
At this point more than 70 established international scientists and experts of great impact have already confirmed their participation as faculty members. The scientific program will also include the traditional form of the abstract based sessions and will provide young-and not only-colleagues with a great opportunity to present their work, research and clinical experience through oral presentations and e-posters covering various section fields of Internal Medicine. Therefore we encourage interested colleagues to actively participate in the programme and submit abstracts of their work through the website of the Congress.
We are confident that the Congress will represent for all participants an unforgettable personal and professional experience, and we look forward to welcoming you in Athens.

Best regards,
The President of the Organizing Committee
George N. Dalekos
