6 11. WELCOME TO ISTANBUL Istanbul is a cosmopolitan city built on two continents. The most recent population census shows that it has a population of about 12 million people, from which almost 65% are inhabitants of the Asian side. Fulfilling the residential role of the city, it doesn't present a lot to see historically. In contrast, the European side is the commercial and cultural center, further divided into two districts (the Old City and the modern downtown) by a narrow channel of water called 'the Golden Horn'. Below you will find some helpful details to make your stay easier when you are in Istanbul. More info at 12. TECHNICAL PROGRAM The Symposium technical program as below will start on Monday March 9th and will be completed on March 11th. Posters will be displayed throughout the three days of the Symposium; however, on the mornings of the March 10th and 11th, special Posters hours have been allocated in order to enable the participants to view the posters freely and engage into communications with poster presenters.
