The Communication Institute of Greece (COMinG) and its international community hopes that the global situation with coronavirus improves quickly so that we are to meet again face to face. Until then, our annual meetings will be proposed remotely, as we did for our 2021 Events.
Onsite opportunities to meet will only be possible in the case that a minimum number of participants are able to attend the event face to face (travel to Athens). In case you have already planned your trip to Athens but the minimum number of attendants is not covered, you will have the opportunity to present remotely, like every other participant.
Presentations to our events can be direct or prerecorded, in order to take into account time differences, since the participants come from different countries and time zones around the world.
Even in this ‘special’ global situation, we are always doing our best to permit exchange and interaction, not only via our academic meetings but also via our academic journal, JEICOM, and other international projects and collaborations with universities around the world and other important academic journals, like JALT.
Thank you. Keep being optimist, positive and ready to share knowledge. And please remember that the world needs your understanding, experience and expertise, now more than ever. Take care, stay safe and strong.
Concerning the Law of Free Vouchers for 18 months
According to the measures taken because of the pandemic (13 April 2020), Greek authorities have adopted a law to protect industries, due to huge demands for refunds. According to this law (see the Official Greek Government Gazette ), which has been implemented by other countries as well, hotels and other industries are not obliged to refund payments even partially but they must offer a free voucher valid for 18 months.
