3D model of the Eugenides building(left). The Planetarium interior.

Eugenides Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated in promoting science education in Greece. It was founded in 1956 and since 1969 hosts the Eugenides Planetarium (built around a Zeiss projector). After the 2002 renovation & expansion it can accommodate 280 spectators under the large digital projection dome (diam. 1420 m2).
In the building complex of the Eugenides Foundation there are conference facilities which can host the CAP2007 participants in an efficient and spacious installation.

We plan to create some discussion spots near the conference halls for making participants interaction easier.
There is a cafeteria (soft drinks, coffee, snack food, sandwiches and pies) in the building and several restaurants in the area for lunch breaks. Of course there will be additional catering service near the conference halls.


There will be a conference bus line for scheduled moving the participants to/from
the hotels. Two frequent public transport bus lines will serve the participants (if they
miss the Conference bus). The bus lines stop by a metro station 2-3 km (5-8 mins)
from the Foundation for access to other city sites.
