Venue and Accommodation

The summer school will be held at the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Physics (ITAP) in Turunç, near the Mediterranean resort town of Marmaris in the south-western corner of the Republic of Turkey. The student participants will be lodged in double to triple en-suite guestrooms at ITAP.

All participants are expected to be at ITAP during the entire duration of the summer school, that is from the early morning of Monday 27 June to the early evening of Friday 1 July. Arrival on Sunday 26 June and departure on Saturday 2 July are thus strongly requested: the booked rooms will be available for the extra two nights.


It is your responsibility to make sure you have any required visa (check the country-specific visa requirements) and travel documents to enter the Republic of Turkey. An invitation letter, which can help you through visa acquisition, will be sent to participants on request, but only if your citizenship does not qualify for getting a visa at the Turkish border gates (as this is a trivial procedure); if you face further difficulties, do not hesitate to contact us.

Travel to Turkey

If possible, book a flight to the nearby Dalaman Airport, if not to Bodrum-Milas Airport or Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport; these airports are mostly serviced by charter flights (from all over Europe), hence book early if you only want a seat but no hotel. Otherwise, aim at Ankara Esenboga Airport, Istanbul Atatürk Airport, or Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport. Another option is to take the daily morning ferry from the nearby Greek island of Rhodos to Marmaris.

Travel inside Turkey

Details on how to reach ITAP from the various border gates will be sent in due time to the participants. We hope to organise a shuttle service from/to the most popular entry gates.
