RCIS 2023 will be held in Corfu which is Greece's greenest and most cosmopolitan island, famous for its beautiful coastline, picturesque villages and scenic countryside. Corfu (Kerkyra in Greek) is one of the most favourite destinations in Greece and the Greek Islands and attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists annually. It is a very beautiful island, part of the Ionian Islands and has a lot of verdant vegetation, amazing beaches, superb venetian architecture, picturesque villages, lively nightlife and a great cosmopolitan way of life. Corfu’s hot and dry summers along with winter rain create lush vegetation which is dominated by over 2 million olive trees.
Specifically, the event will take place in the heart of the Old Town of Corfu, in the Department of the Informatics of the Ionian University. The Ionian University (https://ionio.gr/en/) was founded in 1984 and comprises five faculties and twelve departments. It is located in Corfu, with university units in Lefkada, Kefalonia and Zakynthos.The University consists of the following twelve Departments: Department of History (Corfu), Department of Foreign Languages, Translation & Interpreting (Corfu), Department of Music Studies (Corfu), Department of Archives, Library Science and Museum Studies (Corfu), Department of Informatics (Corfu), Department of Audio and Visual Arts (Corfu), Department of Digital Media and Communication (Argostoli), Department of Ethnomusicology (Lixouri), Department of Environmental Sciences (Zakynthos), Department of Food Science and Technology (Argostoli), Department of Regional Development (Lefkada), Department of Tourism (Corfu).
The number of Departments, as well as the fields covered, indicate that the Ionian University has chosen to operate on a narrow and therefore controllable base. Moreover, the dispersion of the Departments’ facilities in different parts of the urban complex of the city of Corfu, a city with a population of 40,000 residents, declares the University’s will to find its place in the structure of a city with a rich historic and architectural heritage. Since 2018, with the integration of the Ionian Island Technological Educational Institute, the university is expanding its operation with six new departments, five of them in three new locations, Lefkada, Kefalonia and Zakynthos.
Two options will be considered for the venue of the conference. One option is to host the conference at a hotel located in Corfu and the other option is to host the conference at the facilities of the Ionian University. We will examine the two options in relation to the expected number of participants and the budget considerations and make a proposal that is deemed more suitable.
