Thessaloniki is Greece's second major economic, industrial, commercial and political center, and a major transportation hub for the rest of southeastern Europe. The city is renowned for its festivals, events and vibrant cultural life in general, and is considered to be Greece's cultural capital. Thessaloniki is a popular tourist destination. In 2014 Financial Times FDI magazine (Foreign Direct Investments) declared Thessaloniki as the best mid-sized European city of the future for human capital and lifestyle.


14th ISCSM 2018 will take place in the Aristotle University’s Research Dissemination Center (KEDEA). KEDEA is located downtown, on Tritis Septemvriou Str. at Aristotle University’s campus between the Student Club and the University Gymnasium. An important element of the architecture of the building is the characteristic red color, which makes KEDEA a new spatial reference point on the axis of Tritis Septemvriou Str. KEDEA opened its doors for the first time in April 2011. The Conference Center has three ultra-modern auditoriums, exhibition space of 300 sq.m. and public spaces ideal for hosting scientific conferences, symposiums and cultural events.
