On behalf of the TCM2016 conference organizers and in response to numerous queries regarding the refugee problem and the consequences that this might have for participants travelling to Crete, I would personally and sincerely like to inform you all that Greece is, as always proven in the past, a hospitable and friendly country, the free choice of more than 22 million tourists annually.

Crete in particular, being geographically isolated in the southern end of the country, is not affected by the current influx of refugees who are seeking a safe passage to the European mainland, and have found shelter mainly in the central and northern parts of the country.

Therefore, for those who have the slightest reservation about travelling to Crete for the 10th anniversary of the TCM series next October, and as a result of which failed to meet the said deadline for abstract submission, we are setting May 16, 2016 as the new deadline and a second chance to be part of this memorable event.

For any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

Warm Regards,

George Kiriakidis

Chair TCM2016
