15th Greek/Australian International
Legal and Medical Conference
Thessaloniki 31st May-6th June 2015
After nearly thirty wonderful years and 14 enormously successful Conferences we have decided that the time has come. With a tinge of sadness but with a sense of great achievement we are letting you know that our 15th Conference in Thessaloniki in June 2015 will be our last Conference, and we intend to make it one of our best! Thirty years is a long time, and these particular three decades have seen enormous changes not only in law and medicine, but in the world at large. When we started these Conferences the internet did not exist, mobile phones were not invented and personal computers were still a rarity. The human genome project was in its infancy, land rights for indigenous citizens were an aspiration and an apology was a dream. Stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine was the stuff of science fiction.
There is a lot to reflect on, and to celebrate.
Join us for our 15th, and last, Conference at the Nikopolis Hotel in Thessaloniki, in the land of Alexander the Great, to talk about these advances, to identify the issues that need further work and to celebrate the spirit of community service that drives the practitioners of law and medicine in “A Celebration of Law and Medicine”.
We are delighted to announce the keynote speakers for 2015 who we are sure will enthral you and contribute greatly to another outstanding professional programme, once again put together by Professor Neville Yeomans, Program Committee Chairman. The three keynote speakers, all outstanding in their fields are:
- The Hon Justice Susan Kiefel AC
- Emeritus Professor Stephen Leeder AO and
- Dr Jeff McMullin AM
The programme is already attracting a wealth of excellent submitted presentations and promises to be at least as stimulating and entertaining as any at the previous conferences.
As with past Conferences we have planned the week with a wonderful mix of stimulating professional presentations, great tours and fun social gatherings. Tours take in the very best of Thessaloniki, arguably the food, wine and cultural capital of Greece and previously the centre of a thriving Jewish community. The Macedonian region with its rich variety of ancient sites and museums, beautiful beaches, impressive architecture, shopping and wonderful food and wine provides a wealth of wonderful experiences for you to enjoy.
Full details of both the full Conference Programme and the stimulating and satisfying Pre- and Post-conference tours will be available following the impending site inspection trip. We urge you to set aside enough time in your 2015 diary to join us for this memorable event.
