Following the completion of ten international scientific conferences held over the period 2006-2015, the Mount Athos Centre  launches this year a new annual event for the promotion and presentation of scientific and research work on Mount Athos, namely the International Scientific Workshops.



During the annual International Scientific Workshops, for which there will be no specific agenda, established or young scientists will present scientific papers and research works, original and innovative, individual or collective, on a broad range of topics including history, art, theology, architecture, natural environment with Mount Athos as the focal point.


The first International Scientific Workshop will be held during the weekend of 9-10 December 2016, in the Auditorium ‘Stephanos Dragoumis’ at the Museum of Byzantine Culture, and is organised by the Mount Athos Centre under the responsibility of the Scientific Committee which has been especially set up for this purpose.
