The Atlantis Hypothesis

The ATLANTIS conference series aims to serve as a forum for the presentation and constructive discussion of all the subjects related to the hypothesis of the lost land of Atlantis as well as all the relevant theoretical issues.

The purpose of these conferences is to gather specialists of all the different disciplines involved in highlighting the scientific aspects of this greatly interesting subject, provide a greater understanding of key issues on the Atlantis Hypothesis and in the same time offer networking opportunities at an international level.

Greece is the most appropriate location for hosting this conference series, as the ancient Greek great mind Plato formulated the Atlantis hypothesis.

The ATLANTIS 2011 conference enabled all of us to share and celebrate, once again, our common passion for this fascinating theme.
