From November 29th to December 2nd 2021, we had a computational workshop in Heraklion, Crete, as part of the NEOMATRIX project. The workshop was led by Dr. Pavlos Pavlidis and hosted by the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH) Institute of Computer Science (ICS). The scientific program focused on the computational inference of kinship of ancient samples. Furthermore, the program included activities like hiking and a visit to the archaeological site of Faistos.
We cannot thank enough our colleagues from FORTH (Dr Pavlidis, Dr. Nafplioti and others) for organizing such a lively, instructive and warm-hearted event! Due to the COVID-19 related travel restrictions this was the first physical meeting we could have, and we are looking forward to repeating it as soon as possible!
