International Computer Music Conference

September 25th-30th 1997





September is the busiest month for hotels in Thessaloniki. The International Fair, the INFOSYSTEM exhibition, the European Telecommunications Conference and the local art festival DIMITRIA bring to Thessaloniki countless visitors. Activities will be substantially increased in 1997 as the city will be the Cultural Capital of Europe for the whole year.

For the above reasons it should be considered difficult to find accommodation in the city of Thessaloniki during September 1997. This will be made double difficult if one is looking for an attractive price.

Considering the situation, ICMC97 has already reserved a number of rooms for ICMC97 participants at a substantially reduced price. However please note that availability is limited and you should reserve as soon as possible. All requests will be handled on a first come - first served basis. Deadline for Accommodation requests is July 1st, 1997.
