Secretariat plays a vital role in every scientific meeting that we have. It is the necessary link to all the participants, sponsors and lecturers within the symposia process. People that work for this purpose are well trained professionals or trainees in the field of Biomedical Sciences, such as Molecular Biology, Pharmacy and, often, (bio)informatics. This allows to prearrange and adequately meet any possible question or query that will be needed.
Here are some pics from the 2010 Golden Helis Symposium held in Athens at the Divani Acropolis Palace hotel. Usually a conference has some moments to socialize, to connect with your colleagues and to establish new collaborations. We give special interest to these moments because they connect you not only with your family but also with your professional partners.
Also they give you the open space and time to think and relax in order to communicate well within the conference.
Here are some of the lecturers that presented their data during the Golden Helix Symposium. To find out more about the lectures and speakers and all the history of the Golden Helix Symposia please visit www.goldenhelixsymposia.org
This year we have combined our symposia with one of the most distinguished wines of the world. The wines that come from the Estate Argyros winery that is located at the unique island of Santorini.
At this high level wine tasting event experts have shown the varieties of Assyrtiko, Mavrotragano and Vinsanto that are considered among the best in the world.
Also the participants had the time to relax and enjoy a really unique athmosphere in the centre of Athens at the wine bar Cellier.
Here are some photos in black and white mostly that show the spirit of the event. We have selected some moments in order to ‘tell’ you more visually about us.
One of the most important and difficult parts of every conference is the preparation phase.
Everything has to be properly scheduled and all things must be at the right place in the right time.
This is important not only for the organizers but also for the sponsors that have to be ready to exhibit their products and services to the conference participants and lecturers.
I would like to thank you for the opportunity to participate in
a such enlightening conference!
