On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I’m pleased to invite you to the 3rd International Conference on Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever, which will be held at the Makedonia Palace Hotel in Thessaloniki, Greece, from 19th to 21st September 2023.

The conference will give scientists from around the world the chance to exchange information on all aspects of the virus and the disease and report new findings. There will also be the opportunity to compare CCHF with other viral hemorrhagic fevers and discuss common approaches for treatment and prevention.

The city of Thessaloniki has a rich culture, with more than 3000 years of history and many attractive places to visit during your free time. I encourage you to join us and contribute with your knowledge and experience during the 3rd International Conference on CCHF.

Guided tour to the archeological site of Ancient Stageira and to Artistotle's Park in Stageira village. Thessaloniki - Stageira: 107 km. Ancient Stageira is the birthplace of Aristotle, the greatest philosopher of ancient times and tutor of Alexander the Great. The city was founded in ca. 655 B.C. by colonists from the island of Andros. Down to the Persian Wars, Stageira was a free, independent, and prosperous city.

The unique Aristotle's Park is in the historical village of Stagirα. It is worth visiting for its interesting instruments and the great view to the Gulf of Ierissos. The wonderful location was chosen in 1956 to host the statue of the ancient philosopher Aristotle. There are experimental instruments, operating by rules of physics, that are mentioned in Aristotle’s textbooks and especially in the one called “The Physics” (lectures on Nature). The park is a favorite destination for visitors, since it combines recreation, entertainment, and education.
