Turkish Migration Conference 2016will be hosted at the University of Vienna, from 12 to 15 July 2016.
On behalf of the Turkish Migration Conference Organizing Committee we cordially invite you to the 4th Symposium in the series which will take place in Vienna from July 12th to 15th, 2016. The Symposium will be a forum for discussion where experts, young researchers and students, practitioners and policy makers working in the field of migration are encouraged to exchange their knowledge.
The conference is focusing on migration in, through, from, and to Turkey and communities and populations linked to Turkey. The scientific programme will comprise invited talks, oral presentations as well as workshops. The conference will start with the Opening Plenary in the late afternoon of July 12th. We will announce the speakers for this lecture in due course, but surely distinguished scholars of the field will appear as was the case in previous conferences.
Conference venue will be the W29 building of the University of Vienna. The spacious courtyards and foyer in and around the University buildings will provide a pleasant surrounding for the exchange of knowledge between the parallel sessions.
The city centre of Vienna with its historical buildings, museums and exhibitions is within walking distance of the conference site.
We are expecting an interesting and highly motivating meeting and would be happy if you participated in this symposium.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Vienna!

About Turkish Migration Conferences
Turkish Migration Conferences were launched by Ibrahim Sirkeci of Regent's University London in 2012 when the first large scale well attended scholarly academic event on Turkish migration hosted by Regent's Centre for Transnational Studies in Regent's Park campus of Regent's University London, then known as Regent's College London. The first three conferences have been attended on average by over 200 participants coming from all around the world. The third conference was hosted by Charles University Prague from 25 to 27 June 2015.
Turkish Migration Conferences entertain a high profile academic gathering over the years bringing together eminent professors from the US and Europe including Philip Martin of University of California Davis (USA), Douglas Massey of Princeton University (USA), Caroline Brettell of Southern Methodist University (USA), Barry Chiswick of University of Illinois at Chicago (USA), Jeffrey Cohen of Ohio State University (USA), Ibrahim Sirkeci of Regent's University London (UK), Thomas Faist of Bielefeld University (Germany), Karen Phalet of KU Leuven (Belgium), Samim Akgonul of Strasbourg University (France), Joseph Szyliowicz of University of Denver (USA), Nedim Gursel of CNRS (France), and Gudrun Biffl of Krems University (Austria).
