Welcome to TOK



TOK2013 will take place in Turgut Ozal Congress and Cultural Centre at Inonu University in MALATYA on 26-28 September 2013.

Inonu University, named after the second President of Turkish Republic, Ismet Inonu, is one of the leading Institutions in the country. Due to both natural and industrial potential of the region, this University has been among those that are given priority by the government and private sector.

Malatya, where our University is located, is a leader for its world-famous apricot fruit. Of the World dryapricot production, 90% originates from this region. The city is located at the Upper Firat river basin area of the Eastern Anatolian Region. The area had been inhabited since the Neolithic ages, mainly because of its geographic position at the crossroads of major trade routes; the famous Route of Kings and the Silk Road. It is a busy modern city in a huge fertile region with a major agricultural industry due to its rich water sources. It is a popular base from which Nemrut Dagi, one of the most famous touristic sites in Turkey, is within one day trip. Another interesting day trip is to Eski Malatya (Old Malatya), 12-km north of the modern city, which is a ruined Roman town with remains of some old city walls, mosques and caravanserais.
