Conference program
After the afternoon talks on Thursday there will be an organized visit to two mustsee ancient archeological sites near Albena (part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage)  the National Archaeological Reserves Kaliakra and Yailata.
For information on how to get from the Varna airport to Albena see section "Taxi from Varna Airport to Albena" in the link Useful Information on the left.
If you are not bringing your laptop, make sure that your presentation is in PowerPoint (Windows) or PDF; there will be no Mac laptop for KeyNote files. If your presentation is created by using LibreOffice, OpenOffice or any other software, make sure that you convert it to one of the two formats supported at the meeting.
