23rd EURO Working Group on Transportation EWGT 2020 will take place in Paphos, Cyprus

We are pleased to announce the Euro Working Group on Transportation EWGT 2020 which will take place in Paphos, Cyprus, the Aliathon Resort. The event will be organized by the KIOS Research and Innovation Center of Excellence (KIOS CoE), University of Cyprus.

Paphos was the capital of Cyprus in ancient times and once again celebrated this accolade when in 2017 it reigned as European Capital of Culture. An air of romance and history carries through the naturally abundant and culturally rich region of Paphos. Comprised of its old and new towns, rural villages and picturesque resorts, the region is home to some of the most stunning areas of natural beauty on the island, whilst its many archaeological sites are historically invaluable, with Kato Paphos declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a whole. Centered around the quaint harbor and impressive Medieval Castle, Paphos’ environs then stretch to incorporate the tourist resort of Polis Chrysochous. The pretty and tranquil area – known simply as ‘Polis’ – has expanded to become a sub-district in its own right, and encompasses the beautiful Akamas National Park, Lara beach – which is a breeding site for turtles, and the traditional fishing shelter of Latchi.
