HCI-ET will be held in Sozopol. Sozopol is a charming fishermen's village on the Black sea coast, founded by the ancient Greeks (in 610 BC) as the Greek settlement of Apolonia. It is built on a rocky peninsula fringed by small rocky islands, but there are plenty of sandy beaches in the vicinity, with comfortable bathing in the sea. There is a laid-back, southern atmosphere in its cobbled lanes over which the wood-beamed upper storeys of houses jut out in neighbourly proximity.
Currently Sozopol is an attractive tourist place with its beaches, piers, taverns, old wooden houses and Greek churches. HCI-ET will take place in a holiday home at the sea shore and in a walking distance from downtown Sozopol.
Sozopol is located 30 km south to Bourgas. Bourgas has an international and domestic airport with flights from and to Sofia (the capital city of Bulgaria). There are also direct flights connecting the major European cities with Sofia and Bourgas. A regular bus service Bourgas - Sozopol is available (each hour). Transportation between the conference location and Bourgas airport will be provided by request.
