As part of the DOMa Summer School 2024, a conference was held, on the topic of "Overcoming Overtourism", and speakers were professors from all the architecture schools of Greece.

The conference started with Thanasis Manis and Haris Biskos, curators of the DOMa Summer School, and continued with the guest speakers, Manolis Oikonomou (Editor-in-Chief, Archetype), Theoni Xanthi (Democritius University of Thrace), Sofia Tsiraki (National Technical University of Metsovia), Apostolos Kalfopoulos (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki), Leonida Papalampropoulos (University of Patras), Irida Lykourioti (University of Thessaly), Nikos Skoutelis (Polytechnic of Crete) while at the end a text was read on behalf of Andreas Nikolovgenis (University of Ioannina).

The speakers approached the topic of overtourism through different perspectives, from degrowth to new infrastructures. The presentations ranged from nostalgic narratives and personal experiences to legislative issues. At the conference, in addition to the well-known images of Aris Konstantinides and Aristomenes Provelegios, interventions in archaeological sites and some early examples of mass tourism such as the case of Blackpool in the United Kingdom were analyzed.
