38th IAEE International Conference

Antalya, Turkey

May 24 - 27, 2015




I hereby would like to invite USAEE members to attend the 38th IAEE International Conference in Antalya, Turkey. Antalya, the World’s third most visited city by number of international arrivals, is only a short flight from Istanbul with easy and frequent connections from the USA. Delegates may wish to use the occasion and setting as the focal point for a Mediterranean vacation. The conference will take place when spring leads into summer, at a time of ideal temperatures for comfortable outdoor activities and swimming. The five-star conference hotel, a luxury resort located directly on the beach, features a spa area with Turkish bath, a water park with slides and 2 championship golf courses. The perfect location of Antalya offers the oppourtunity to reach a number of quite popular historical and touristic spots. Our suggested post-conference tours include the destinations of Cappodocia - the Land Of The Fairy Chimneys, Pamukkale - The Cotton Castle, Ephesus - the Temple of Artemis, and Demre – the birthplace of St. Nicholas, along with the option of a blue cruise for a recreational voyage along the Turkish Riviera.

The conference program is being prepared by an International Program Committee (IPC) with outstanding prominent members so as to ensure that critical issues of vital concern and importance to governments and industries are presented, considered and discussed from all perspectives. In this context, many exiting plenary and dual plenary sessions on key current energy issues, featuring internationally established speakers and lively discussions, will be organized. As a novelty that provides linking to our regional events, a dual plenary session will be formed so as to use input from the regional conferences to elaborate further on the international implications of the U.S. energy renaissance. Concurrent sessions will be organized as Regular, Invited, Discussant or Collaborative Conversation ones. USAEE members interested in organizing a concurrent session are invited to contact the IPC by e-mail at ipc_chair@iaee2015.org

With its informal social functions, the conference will provide a unique opportunity for networking and enhancing communication amongst energy concerned professionals from business, government, academia and other circles worldwide. The rich social program will include unique arrangements like pre-conference tournaments and a beach party on the Mediterranean shore.

I and my colleagues, an experienced and enthusiastic team of outstanding prominent energy professionals in Turkey, are determined to make this conference a professionally most enriching and socially most memorable event - as we did in Istanbul in 2008. Please visit our website for all details and latest updates about the conference: www.iaee2015.org

On behalf of the organizing committee I wish you all a very warm welcome to Antalya and an exciting conference.
