We are sorry to announce that TUBITAK (Scientific and Technological Institution of Turkey) has informed us that they are not able to support the travel costs of our young scholars. We are as disappointed about this as you are, however, we will offer free accommodation (in a shared en-suite room) and breakfast and lunch to both people who had applied for a fund and Ph.D students. We know that this is not much but all we can do at the moment.
For now, if requested, we will be able to offer participants reasonably priced dorm accommodation + breakfast and lunch:
i. Single dorm room + 2 meals for 40 TL per day
ii. Single bed in shared double dorm room + 2 meals for 30 TL per day
The university is on a very small campus next to a research library located in Uskudar (on the Asian side of Istanbul) and the dorms are either on the campus or within 5 mins walking distance from the conference venue.
Alternative accommodation to the University dorm rooms are:
1. Rihtim Otel (www.rihtimotel.com) (around 50 EUR), at Kadikoy – one bus ride away from the conference venue)
2. Holiday Inn (www.hiexaltunizade.com) (around 80 EUR (room price), within walking distance from the conference venue)
