Conference Venue and Registration

The conference will be held at the santralistanbul Campus of Bilgi University, an arts and cultural complex located along the Golden Horn. Once the Ottoman Empire’s first urban-scale power plant, the area was reopened in 2007 as a unique industrial heritage site hosting the Museum of Energy, the Main Gallery building, the Krek theatre as well as exhibition spaces and dining, refreshment and entertainment venues.

The registration will take place on Wednesday morning before the opening session at santralistanbul. Please do not forget to register separately for the (1) reception at the French General Consulate on Friday and the (2) documentary theater performance in Tarabya on Saturday (incl. boat trip and lunch on the boat) either online or during the registration phase at santralistanbul.

Getting there:

santralistanbul is located in Silahtar at the confluence of the Kağıthane and Alibeyköy rivers and the Golden Horn. There will be a daily shuttle service between LARESPARK Hotel and the conference venue only for conference participants!

If you prefer to come by car from Beşiktaş or Taksim, taking the new Bomonti-Dolmabahçe and Piyalepaşa-Kağıthane road tunnels will cut journey time considerably. Santralistanbul has on-site parking facilities with space for 600 vehicles.
