We wish to express here our deep gratitude to Jason Papathanasiou and the University of Macedonia, for their great job in locally organizing this event in Greece. We are extremely grateful to all the local arrangements and help received from him and his Team. Many Thanks!

We had 27 research contributions/presentations, 5 special talks and 2 web-seminars. We would like to acknowledge the interest and cooperation of all the authors who submitted their finished and on-going research work for presentation in this workshop.  All presentations were very interesting and there was a high level of information exchange for further fruitful cooperation among all participants.
