Online you can find the analytic preliminary program at 

We would like to remind you that abstract submission deadline and early 
registration fees apply up to 30th of June! Please visit 
http://ffrm2015.com to register and submit your abstract online.

Also , we would like to bring to your attention that during the congress 
two social events will take place :

- Basketball Tournament(/free of charge/)

The three organizing nations share a long history in Basketball, with 
numerous, unforgettable, exciting games conducted between national and 
associational teams. The city of Thessaloniki itself has a close 
relationship with basketball, as it has been largely known as the 
capital of modern Greek basketball.

An indoors basketball tournament will be hosted at the Thessaloniki YMCA 
court. Students and older students are going to participate in the 
tournament in mixed teams. Medical support to ...older students will be 
kindly provided by the Aristotle University Medical School.

Interested participants will be (almost) randomly allocated to four teams

• Brainiacs
• Synaptics
• Connectomes
• Old timers

T-shirts will be provided to the players, who are kindly requested to 
bring their shoes and shorts. Two initial classification games will take 
place and the small and big finals will follow. The duration of the 
games will be 15 min each. The winners will have the opportunity to 
publish their papers in most international journals, under privileged 
reviewing processes. The Old timers are supposed to win, provided they 
make it through the tournament.

When registering for the FFRM2015, do not forget to mention you wish to 
participate to the Basketball Tournament! It’s a no-brainer!

*-Food Festival (*40€ per person / 30 € for undergraduate student)

A Gastronomy Festival will be held at the area of the port, in a 
Warehouse at Pier A, an alternative and modern location of the city. The 
main objective of the event is a search of gastronomic identity of 
Thessaloniki in combination with Balkan flavors, on which so much is 
said and written. The street food “festival” will be accompanied by 
Greek and Balkan sounds from a live band.

In case you are interesting to participate in one or both these events, 
please declare it during your registration online. For those who have 
already register and they decided to participate, please contact Meeting 
Secretariat at f.kyritsi at events.gr.
