The Sixteenth Inforum World Conference in Cyprus
The sixteenth Inforum World Conference was hosted by the European University of Lefke, North Cyprus, from August 31 to September 7, 2008. The conference was held at the Acapulco Beach Club & Resort Hotel in Kyrenia. Additional details and registration information are available.
Popular sites in Kyrenia include the Kyrenia Castle, Old Harbor, The Shipwreck Museum, and St. Hilarion Castle. Kyrenia Castle was built in the 7th Century to protect the town. A Byzantian church is located inside the castle, as well as the tomb of the Ottoman Admiral, Sadik Pasha. There are also the towers, dungeons, an arsenal, a cannon parapet, and the shipwreck museum. St. Hilarion Castle also provided protection to Cyprus from raiding Arabs. The castle was named after Saint Hilarion. Records indicate that the castle was built sometime before 1191.
Please see the site constructed by our hosts for more information.
