Welcome Letter


Dear Colleagues,

The annual NanoTR conference series are considered to be the premier scientific event in Turkey in the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology, with broad attendance by the scientific community and highlighted by invited talks delivered by national and international experts in various areas. Now, the 13th installment in the NanoTR conference series will be organized in Antalya, between the dates of 22th and 25th of October, 2017 under the decree of Bilkent University.

While the impact of nanoscience and nanotechnology in our daily lives is felt in an ever-increasing way, continuous development in these fields is expected to result in the realization of revolutionary ideas in fields as diverse as energy, medicine and electronics. Within this context, the NanoTR conference series present an ideal platform for fruitful exchange of ideas which is crucial for scientific advancement.

More than 500 national and international participants are expected at the 13th NanoTR Conference, including invited speakers, academicians, entrepreneurs, private sector representatives, post-doctoral scientists, as well asgraduate and undergraduatestudents.

Having organized two successful international meetings with the“under-one-roof” concept in Antalya, we have decided to hold this year’s meeting in Antalya, as well, specifically at Papillon Ayscha in Belek - a very compact hotel which offers excellent meeting facilities to foster ample scientific and social interaction.

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 13th NanoTR conference in which every aspect of nanoscience and nanotechnology will be discussed. We would like to thank you in advance for your valuable contributions and participation.

Sevgili Meslektaşlarımız,

Herkesin ortak tespiti olan önemli bir husus, NanoTR’ye ilginin yıllar içinde azaldığıdır. Bunu dikkate alarak, geçen seneki toplantı sırasında bazı arkadaşlarımızla yaptığımız konuşmalar sırasında ortaya çıkan fikir; NanoTR camiasını büyük şehirlerden biraz uzakta ve fiziksel olarak tek bir çatı altında toplamanın daha uygun olacağı yönünde idi. Konuyu biraz daha açmak gerekirse; ana fikir, katılımcıların sadece toplantı sırasında değil, kahvaltı, yemek, aralarda gerçekleştirilebilecek spor v.b. faaliyetler sırasında da bir araya gelebilecekleri bir ortamda buluşulmasının sağlanması idi.

Bu husus göz önüne alınarak hem konaklama hem de çok mükemmel konferans hizmetleri verebilecek ve ayrıca da ekonomik olması açısından Antalya, Belek’teki Papillon Ayscha Oteli öne çıktı. Toplantımız için bu otel ile 22-25 Ekim 2017 tarihleri için sözleşme yapıldı. Ayrıca ülkemizdeki sıkıntılara rağmen yurtdışında yaşayan birçok bilim insanlarımız ve yabancı meslektaşlarımız bu toplantıda bizleri yalnız bırakmayacaklarını belirttiler.

O nedenle, Türkiye’de konu ile ilgili çalışmalar yapan Temel Bilimci, Eczacı, Tıpçı ve Mühendis Meslektaşlarımıza ve Özel Sektör Temsilcilerimize bu tarihleri takvimlerine şimdiden işaretlemelerini, toplantıya katılmalarını ve bize destek ve tavsiyeler vermelerini bekliyoruz.

Saygılarımızla,

NanoTR-13 Düzenleme Komitesi adına,

Host City Antalya

Antalya, the Turkish Riviera is the most stunning part of Turkey's Mediterranean coast. It is typical of Turkey, a thriving modern city, with a historic heart in the centre of Kaleici within the old city walls. This area has seen something of a renaissance in recent years, with many of the wooden Ottoman mansions being restored and turned into boutique hotels. No cars are allowed in the narrow streets of the old town so it is a good place to soak up the atmosphere around the charming harbour;  The symbol of Antalya is the fluted minaret or Yivli Minare built by the Seljuks in the 13th century. There are plenty of interesting pieces in the Archaeological Museum, from the Palaeolithic Age right through to Ottoman times. 

The most popular Historic Sites of Antalya Region:

Aspendos: Just 50 km east of Antalya, Aspendos was an important centre of trade during Roman times. Today, the most impressive aspect of Aspendos is her stunning theatre, which was built in approx. 162 AD. It seats 15,000 and has been beautifully preserved. Each year it hosts the Aspendos Opera and Ballet Festival which takes place in June and July and gives you the opportunity to see performances of classics in a magnificent setting. The aqueduct, which supplied water to the city is also still relatively intact and is an impressive sight.

Phaselis: The three harbours of this Lycian port city were once a major commercial centre. In the shelter of Mount Tahtalı, it is a popular stopping off point for yachts, and its clear waters and sandy beaches are popular with sun-seekers. The remains are mostly Roman and include a theatre, baths, aqueducts, Hadrian's Gate, an agora and an acropolis.

Perge: Just 18 kms from Antalya, Perge was an important city in Pamphylia and was visited by St.Paul during his missionary journeys. Today, the city gate flanked by lofty towers, theatre and baths are of interest.

Demre: Also known as Kale, the ancient city of Myra, is mostly famous for its connection with St. Nicholas, who was bishop here in the 4th century. His church is the focus of the annual ceremony which takes place to commemorate him on or around his feast day of 6th December. It is well worth seeing the Roman theatre which remains here, overlooked by spectacular rock tombs, dating from the 4th century BC.
