Istanbul as the Conference Destination

Our 1st PATME and LASTE conferences were held in Istanbul, a major city of Turkey that straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait.

With its long history at the center of empires, Istanbul offers a wealth of historic and religious places to visit.

The bulk of its ancient monuments, dating back to Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman periods, including the Hagia Sophia, Topkapı Palace, Sultanahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque), and Basilica Cistern are located around Sultanahmet Square, while some others are dispersed throughout the peninsula of old city.

Attending conferences is a great opportunity not only to share the professional experience and extend the network of the colleagues but also to explore the city with the beauty and uniqueness of its historical places, architecture, restaurants of the original Turkish cuisine.
