The IATS'13 Symposium is designed to bring together leading international and interdisciplinary research communities, developers, and users of advanced technologies and to discuss theoretical and practical issues in all the field  of technologies. The symposium will provide a forum to present the results of the researches and developments and to highlight related activities from around the world.

7th International Advanced Technologies Symposium(IATS’13) will be held in Yildiz Technical University, İstanbul, Turkey, on 30 October - 1 November, 2013. I am pleased to invite you to submit paper(s) and encourage your colleagues to take part in this Symposium. The symposium is the seventh in a series on advanced technologies and related topics. In the last Symposium more than 500 papers and plenary lectures presented by eminent scientists made the symposium a very successful scientific event.

Participants from all countries of the world are welcome and submission of papers from groups is greatly appreciated since it is considered a valuable contribution to enrich different points of view as well as to communicate last achievements in the field. All topics and all the scientific/technological approaches in the various advanced technological fields are pertinent to this Symposium. The Scientific committee are composed of international experts in various disciplines. The technical program will consist of invited lectures by eminent specialists from all over the world, oral presentation of the contributed papers and posters of the work-in-progress.

The scientific committee will select contributions for formal and poster presentations. In evaluation, priority will be given to original papers. Papers in the form of literature review will be selected in limited numbers. Accepted papers will be published in the Symposium Proceedings. The website   is available for other details. Please forward this e-mail/poster to your colleagues and potential authors who might be interested in attending this symposium Thank you for your interest in participating in IATS-2013  and we look forward to meeting you in Yildiz Technical University in Istanbul which is located in the most beautiful areas of the world Deadline of abstract submission  can be seen from the website link

" There, God and humannature and art are together, they have created such a perfect place that it is valuable to see."  Lamartine's famous poetic lines reveal his love for Istanbul, describing the embracing of two continents, with one arm reaching out to Asia and the other to Europe. Istanbul's beauty lies in its ability to embrace its contradictions. Ancient and modernreligious and secularAsian and Europeanmystical and earthly all co-exist here. Mother of All Cities: With it's history dating back to 658 B.C., Istanbul has been in uninterrupted existance forming the cross-roads of creative exchange between Europe and Asia. This spectacular city with it's diverse identities has given rise to many legends and inspired countless works of art. Two Empires - Two Capitals: Istanbul has been the capital of the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, leaving behind a multicultural sediment of civilisations and faiths in the forms of aquaducts, cisterns, palaces, churches, sinagogs, mosques and above all, cultural tolerance and harmony. Istanbul in Numbers: Surface Area : 5.512 km Population : 15.000.000 (approximately) Modern Touristic Establishments and Conference Facilities Istanbul today is the focal point of industry, commerce and cultural life in Turkey.

Delegates can enjoy luxurous, comfortable and affordable accommodations and Istanbul's 3500 years of history as well as attending a high quality and productive meeting planned precisely from the plenary session to the closing ceremonies in facilities equipped with the latest technology. Under these circumstances, it would not be exaggeration to point out that delegates can naturally expect a remarkable event in a definitely outstanding city.
