(Dinos) Michaelides participated as a keynote speaker in a seminar organized by the Hellenic Society for the Protection of Cultural Heritage and the Natural Environment (ELLET - NGO) and the School of Architecture at the National Technical University of Athens, Greece. The seminar took place on the island of Hydra. Titled "The Study of Hydra, Fifty Years Later" Michaelides's presentation focused on both the Greek and US roots of the original study as well as subsequent publications on the development of the island town during recent decades.
