Amazing Rhodes Unveiled to NeTTT’s Attendees

Rhodes, the island of the Knights

Rhodes (or Rodos) island is located at the southeastern edge of the archipelagos of the Dodecanese island complex and the Aegean Sea. Beautiful and with a long and rich history, it faces the shores of Asia Minor covering an area of 1398 square kilometers in a landscape which mainly comprises of hills and low mountains, covered  in their majority with forests.

The name Rhodes is believed to have been coined from the Phoenician word ‘Erod’ which means ‘snakes’. In the primeval times, the island was filled with countless numbers of snakes. The island has been called names like Rodi by the Italians, Rodis by Ladino and Rodos by Turks.

Ancient history

Rhodes has been inhabited since the Stone Age, first by the Cretans, who were the first settlers on the island, and later by the Phoenicians and the Dorians who must have installed themselves on the island prior to the Trojan War (1184 BC). After the Trojan war, the island enjoyed rapid progress and developed the  ancient civilization of Rhodes , examples of which can be seen nowadays in the antiquities of the three largest and most powerful cities of the island, Lindos, Ialyssos and Kamiros. At the end of the 5th century BC these cities united into a single political force and founded Rhodes, which reached its acme during the 3rd century BC. During that period, famous artists, philosophers and writers lived on the island. From the 2nd century BC it became an ally of Rome and it gained its independence  in 297 AD when Diocletian joined the Provincia insularum of the Roman Empire.

Rhodes, with its unspoilt nature, beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters, temperate climate all  year round, world heritage sites, antiquities, castles, palaces and monasteries, valleys, a magnificent and very well preserved old medieval town (UNESCO World Cultural Heritage), cultural events and festivals, world known gastronomy, and vivacious and diverse nightlife, is undoubtedly the tourist Mecca of the Aegean Sea.

Dear colleagues,

Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak and the subsequent travel restrictions and with a view to protecting the health and well-being of our delegates, speakers and sponsors, we have taken the decision to postpone the NeTTT conference until July 2021.  

Although we reached that decision with a heavy heart, we are still excited about our event and we hope to welcome you all on the magical island of Rhodes in July 2021.

 

The new dates are the following: 

3-4 July 2021: Summer School on Neural Machine Translation

5-7 July 2021: NeTTT’2021 Conference

 

In addition, under the current circumstances we have decided to extend the call for abstracts and papers deadlines as follows:
