Dear Colleagues, Ladies and Gentlemen!
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to cordially invite you to the 5th International Symposium on the Safety of Dams in Istanbul. The Conference Center is located in a pleasant, calm and intimate atmosphere of the historic city of Istanbul, which lies on and around the Bosphorus between Asia and Europe.
The aim of the symposium is to provide participants with a forum to exchange experiences and information about new technologies. The Organizing Committee will work extremely hard to present an interesting and innovative program that will also include excursions to dams in Istanbul.
In addition to workshops and lectures, there will also be a special technical meeting on the major dam projects already completed or under construction in Turkey and neighboring countries. For the symposium, we are planning information days for some countries with presentations on local water resources and hydraulic structures.
The cultural program for participants and accompanying persons includes cultural, historical and social events with Turkish hospitality. The program, prepared for the participants and accompanying persons, will offer in addition to the city tours also multi-day sightseeing tours to historical and tourist sites including Ephesus, Pamukkale and Cappadocia at moderate prices following the symposium.
The international city of Istanbul offers excellent conference facilities, as well as convenient international transport links and a well-developed local transportation network.
Discover the historical, cultural and culinary side of Turkey.
We look forward to welcoming you to Istanbul.
Prof. Dr. Hasan TOSUN, Chairman
