The 2021 iGeo - Istanbul, Turkey

Istanbul is a city of unparalleled social and cultural richness. It is as fascinating and historical as it is dynamic and modern. Serving as the capital of two mighty empires incessantly for sixteen centuries, Eastern Roman or Byzantine and Ottoman, and set squarely between two continents, Istanbul has cultures and traditions that blend East with West and Mediterranean with Anatolian. Each civilization that has made Istanbul its home has left its mark in sublime and splendid ways, and the result a city that gives one the feeling of universal history at every step. With a definitely multicultural touch and a vibrant atmosphere rooted deep in the past experience of humanity while facing toward the future, Istanbul is truly as much a crossroads of ideas and cultures today as ever.

The 2021 iGeo will be held in Istanbul from 11 to 15 August, 2021. The theme is “Bridging the Continents”. The event is organized by the TURKISH GEOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY and ISTANBUL TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY.
