HCII 2014: Creta Maris Beach Resort, Heraklion, Crete, Greece

The 16th International Conference on Human - Computer Interaction will take place at the Creta Maris Beach Resort, Heraklion, Crete, Greece, 22-27 June 2014. Located on a long sweeping bay of sandy beach and crystal clear water, Creta Maris is a small village with quaint twisting paths, small piazzas filled with the scents and colors of a wide variety of trees and flowers, is a unique combination of Aegean Architecture, Cretan hospitality, green oriented environment, and high quality services. Many of the guest rooms offered are available with relaxing views of the Mediterranean Sea, the sandy beaches, or the hotel gardens.

Crete, the place of birth, growth and flourishing of the ancient Minoan civilization, combines mountains and sea in a landscape of extreme variety. The island could be well characterized as the land of the gorges. The most famous of them, the gorge of Samaria, approximately 16 kilometers in length, is one of the largest gorges of Europe. Crete is well known for its agricultural products, such as olives and olive oil, honey, herbs and grapes, but also for its tasty and healthy Cretan diet. In Crete music plays an important role in every aspect of life (religious ceremonies, entertainment, birth, marriage, death and war) and Cretan dances have their roots in the Minoan times. Today, Crete is home to scientific institutions of international caliber, hosting, amongst others, the University of Crete in Heraklion and Rethymnon, the Technical University of Crete in Chania and the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH).
