The AIMRI Spring event will be held in Athens:
What is the AIMRI meeting about?
Whatever research method is chosen (whether online, blog analysis, qualitative, telephone, face-to-face or by mail) the question of respondent co-operation is a vital factor. For each research method how should we realise the hope of increased co-operation
The conference will be in the 5 star St George Lycabettus Hotel – a well known “boutique” hotel on the slopes of the Lycabettus hill but accessible to Kolonaki Square and the shops. The hotel enjoys fabulous views over the Acropolis.
Sophisticated Athens sites include many pillars of Western history, from the Acropolis to the Temple of Olympian Zeus, as well as treasures in the National Archaeological Museum, the Benaki Museum and the ambience of the Plaka.
Athens is a city reformed thanks to fortunes brought by the 2004 Summer Olympics. Spotless parks and streets, ultra-modern metro, new motorways, and an accessible airport now greet the visitor The average maximum temperature in March is a pleasant 22 degrees centigrade.
Why not stay for the weekend and enjoy the unique sites in this city.
