The main conference venue is the Student Cultural Center Xenia (Psarrou 46, Rethymno 741 00, Greece), where panels and posters will take place; this is within walking distance of the eastern edge of the historic town.  The opening reception will be hosted by the Institute for Mediterranean Studies at their headquarters inside the old city, near the fortress (Ioannou Melissinou 130 &, Nikiforou Foka, Rethymno 741 00, Greece).  The hotels we’ve listed here are at various relatively short distances from both venues.
