Rhodes Forum
12th Annual Session
September 25-29, 2014


Scientific Marathon


The Executive Committee of the World Public Forum “Dialogue of Civilizations” (WPFDC) is happy to announce the Rhodes Forum Scientific Marathon – 2014. Every year starting from 2002, the Forum has been gathering experts from all over the world, bringing notions and ideas spawned in different spheres of scientific and public interest to a joint point, where they can be freely and independently discussed.

Widening the boundaries of a public discussion has always been one of the most important aims of the Forum, and each time the Executive Committee looked for new impulses. This year the Rhodes Forum Scientific Marathon will be serving the same goal.
