InTraders International Conference on International Trade – 1st edition 10-12 May 2018
InTraders International Conference on International Trade - 1st edition 10-12 May 2018
From my point of view, as both conference secretary and author, the InTraders International Conference on International Trade (10-12 May 2018, Sakarya, Turkey) has been a real success.
The conference was at its first edition, so the challenges were even bigger. It was aimed to have participants from abroad (non Turkish) and also local ones; the foreign authors were more numerous than the Turkish authors, which stood up as a strength for this scientific event.
Countries like Pakistan, Kazahstan, Greece, Romania, Macedonia, Indonesia, Poland, Kosovo, Congo, Azerbaijan, Kirghizstan etc. were represented at the conference by enthusiastic researchers and professors, who shared their interesting and well documented papers belonging to different areas of study. Moreover, the conference had secretaries from different countries, proving that the openness of the conference had no boundaries.
The papers were presented in turkish or english within different sesions, which could be freely attended at Sakarya University’s Conference Hall.
The organisation was done to the smallest detail, as it follows:
- there were 2 days (10-11 May) dedicated to the registration and presentation of papers;
- one day for social activities (forest tour, lunch), visiting Sakarya and the city centre, gala dinner at Sapanca Lake
- Third activity was Istanbul Program. 8 people took place in Istanbul Program. InTraders managed Galata Tower, Hagia Sophia, Closed Bazaar, Egypt Bazaar, İstiklal Street, Taksim, Bosphorus Tour. It was nice memorable days.
These activities were meant to connect all the participants and be the milestone to further collaborations between researches, professors and universities.
The papers will be published in a journal and the abstracts in the Abstract E-book.
We combined business with pleasure and made the most out of InTraders International Conference.
All things being said, InTraders 2018 has made a big step towards continuity and significance as an international scientific event, given its 1st edition accomplishments.
The next scientific event is the International Student Conference, taking place in 4-6 October 2018, organised under the aegis of Sakarya University, Turkey with foreign partnerships. Further info www.intraders.org/student
I whole-heartedly invite you to apply for the Student Conference, if you are a master’s degree or PhD student, because it will be a worthwhile experience.
