Second Circular

January 2007

Dear Colleagues, dear Friends,

As it is possible to send ones wishes until the end of January according to the French tradition, I wish you a Happy New Year 2007!

Chers collègues, chers amis,

Profitant de la tradition française, selon laquelle il est possible de présenter ses vœux jusqu'à la fin du mois de janvier, je vous souhaite une Bonne et Heureuse Année 2007!


1.) Our apologies for the delay of the Second Circular. The deadline for a paper submission to our conference has already been closed. We have the pleasure to inform you that, up to now, we have more than 162 paper applicants, participating from more than 24 different countries. Paper applicants and their countries are as follows: Greece (44), Italy (22), Germany (20), Turkey (19), France (17), USA (10), Great Britain (5), Austria (5), Rumania (5), Switzerland (3), Israel (2), Russia (2), Jordan (2), Canada (1), Sweden (1), Spain (1), South Africa (1), Poland (1), Bulgaria (1), Ukraine (1), Albania (1), Egypt (1), Tunisia (1) and Algeria (1). Due to the high number of participators we need to organize three separate sessions for poster presentations. The scientific committee will establish a provisional Conference program in February 2006 and inform you with the Third Circular whether your paper will be presented as an oral or poster presentation.

It is still possible to apply to the Conference as an observer. Please fill in the form, enclosed to here and send it back before May 1, 2007.

2.) Kindly reminding you of the details of the paper proposal, please check the Conference website with your personal information:


If you find any error in our web site, would you please submit your corrections to us? We would urge you to regularly check our website for updates on the conference information.


If, in case you encounter any technical difficulties on the web, please feel free to e-mail us.

3.) For those who did not submit their abstract yet, we urge to send their abstracts as soon as possible. Currently we are in the preparation of the Abstract Booklet for our web site <http://web.deu.edu.tr/terracottas/abstracts.html> as well as for the publication in Instrumentum 25. Greek and Turkish abstracts were already translated into French and English. If you would like to make adjustments to your abstract to make it more cohesive with the themes/sessions of the Conference, we kindly ask you to check your own abstract on the web site and to send us your corrections and/or revisions by e-mail, so we can include them in the publication.

4.) 29th Turkish Symposium of Archaeological Excavations, Surveys and Archaeometry will likely take place at the last week of May 2007, in Kocaeli that is ca. 1000 km northeast of Izmir. For those who are planning to travel to our conference after the Symposium we are ready to help for the route description.

5.) To register to the Conference we would like to ask you to arrive to Izmir on 1st of June, 2007, preferably before 6:00 pm. Beginning from 6:00 pm until 11:00 pm our encounters for the conference registration will be open at the Burgundy Hall (“Bordo Salon”) of the Rectorate Building (DESEM) of the Dokuz Eylul University in Izmir. A map for the building will be provided with the Third Circular, but also on our web site soon. We will also supply you with mobile phone numbers so that you could contact us right after your arrival to Izmir. A list of the student assistants with mobile phone numbers working in our “Technical Assistance” team will be put in our web site soon (<http://web.deu.edu.tr/terracottas/organizers.html>. Our assistants speak English, French, German, Turkish and Arabic. Dr. Ergün LAFLI and Dr. Michel FEUGÈRE will also be available through mobile phones through the whole entire of the conference for your inquiries.

6.) To make your hotel reservations please let us know your arrival and departure dates to Izmir and if you need any hotel reservations. With the Third Circular we will offer you a list of hotels with different prices. You should then inform us what the best for yourself is.

7.) We are trying to obtain free dinners & cocktails to our participators. As a first step we have received an offer from the French Cultural Center in Izmir that is going to sponsor the dinner and cocktail of the first Conference evening. We need more cooperation for finding possible sponsors, such as Italian or German Cultural Centers and Consulates in Izmir. Do you have any other ideas? Please share it with us…

8.) As it was suggested by Dr. Vincenza IORIO (Naples), It is our intention to inaugurate an association for the study of Greek and Roman coroplastic studies during the Conference. The name of the Association, as suggested by Prof. MULLER, could be, exempli gratia,"Diphilos. Association pour l'étude de la corophathie grecque et romaine". Do you have any ideas about such an international academic organization that you would like to inform us? Please share it with us…

9.) For any further inquiries, the quickest way to reach to us is the telephone:

+90.232.412 87 24.

10.) We would urge you to regularly check our website for updates on the conference information:



The Conference will be held on the Burgundy Hall (“Bordro Salon”) of the Rectorate Building (DESEM) of the Dokuz Eylul University in Izmir, Turkey. The address is:

Dokuz Eylül Üniversitesi Rektörlük Binası, DESEM Salonları,

Cumhuriyet Bulvarı, No: 144, Alsancak, TR-35210, Izmir, TURKEY.

Tel.: +90.232.412 10 85.

Web Site: <http://www.deu.edu.tr/DEUWeb/English/>.

The city of Izmir (population 3,220,000), third largest city of Turkey, is located in the eastern part of the Aegean Sea and serves as the largest city in the Turkish west. For more information on the city of Izmir and its amenities, please visit <http://www.izmirturizm.gov.tr/default.asp?L=EN>.

The Dokuz Eylul University of Izmir, founded in 1982, is the largest university among the Izmir’s five universities with approximately 33,000 students and is a comprehensive research institution. There are two Archaeological Departments in Izmir (both with archaeological collections) as well as two large Archaeological Museums.

The conference sessions will be held in the spacious meeting hall of the university’s Rectorate Hall, DESEM.

Please note that only very few people in Izmir speak any foreign languages. It is therefore recommended to learn some practical Turkish words for your convenience in Izmir.



For convenience, travellers may fly directly into Izmir. Almost all big flight companies serve the Izmir Adnan Menderes International Airport <http://www.adnanmenderesairport.com/izmiren/index.php>. It is also possible to fly into Istanbul, located 600 miles (ca. 1000 kms) from Izmir, which has a larger airport with more airline connections and is therefore often less expensive <
http://www.ataturkairport.com/eng/index.php; website is also in German>. There are several buses that connects the Istanbul with Izmir. If you plan to drive to Izmir from Istanbul by bus, the travel time is approximately 11 hours and costs ca. 30 ytl (ca. 17 €).

The lowest priced flights to Izmir Airport are Germanwings <http://www.germanwings.com/index.en.shtml> and Cyprus Turkish Airlines <http://www.kthy.net/kthyen/html/index.htm>. Other cheap flight companies to Izmir are Sun Express <http://www.sunexpress.com.tr/english/announcement_100126_0.html>, Hapag-Llyod <http://www.hapagfly.com/westsite/content/suchen_und_buchen/eng_001158.shtml>, Onur Air <http://www.onurair.com.tr/>, Atlasjet Airlines <http://www.atlasjet.com/en/default.asp>, Sky Airlines <http://www.skyairlines.net/eng/index.htm> and Ryan Air <http://www.ryanair.com/site/EN/>.

In Istanbul you will of course have more options in terms of airline companies and their prices. The Istanbul Atatürk Airport has a tube connection with the Central Bus Station in Esenler. From there it is very easy to find a bus to Izmir at anytime.

Main Charter Flight Companies to Izmir

Main charter flight companies to Izmir are Turkish Airlines, British Airways, Air France, Lufthansa, Swiss Air and KLM. Turkish is, however, the most comfortable one, and their prices are not too bad.

Flight Destinations of Turkish Airlines from Istanbul

From the Airport to the Downtown Izmir

Shuttle Service

There is a shuttle service (Havaş) that connects the Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport with downtown Izmir that leaves the Izmir airport every other hour. Go to the shuttle’s website for more information, schedules and fares: <http://www.havas.net/en/otobus_izmir.asp>.

Their phone number is: +90.232.444 04 87.

City departure spot: Alsancak: Büyük Efes Hotel (very close to the Conference Hall by walk). There is no passenger acceptance except the take-off departure points!

Departure Times: From the Airport: Shuttle service for all airlines arriving in domestic lines of Adnan Menderes Airport.

Alsancak Efes Hotel: 03:30-04:30-05:30-06:30-07:30-08:30-09:30-10:30-11:30-12:30-13:30-14:30-15:30 16:30-17:30-18:30-19:30-20:30-21:30-22:30-23:30.

Between 24.00 and 06.00 AM, ticket fees are increased as 25%.

To arrive to the Conference Hall you need to get off at Alsancak Efes Hotel (last station of the shuttle).

Money Exchange

There are private money exchange offices at the aiport; but also three banks and a post office. You can find the same on the same street with Alsancak Efes Hotel or in Çankaya (near Izmir Hilton). We recommend you to exchange your money at private offices.

Currently 2 New Turkish Liras (YTL=Yeni Türk Lirası) is about 1.08 € and US$ 1.4.

For money currencies: <http://www.xe.com/ucc/convert.cgi>.

Taxis or Car Rentals

Taxis are also available at the airport or anywhere you go in Izmir; an usual rate from the airport to the downtown Izmir would be ca. 35 ytl (ca. 20 €). Car rental is available at both Izmir and Istanbul airports, a bit of too expensive in Turkey though.


The easiest way to travel between Greece and Turkey (or Italy and Turkey) is on a ferry from a Greek island to the Turkish mainland (or vice-versa). Ferries depart from at least six Greek islands to ten ports in Turkey. The busiest, most convenient Turkish ports are Bodrum, Marmaris, Kuşadası and Çeşme; those in Greece are Rhodes, Kos, Samos and Chios. The most uncertain and expensive ferry (for what you get) is and always has been the one between Lesvos (Mytileni) and Ayvalık.

A good travel agency can provide information on sailings and fares, and make reservations for you. They can also book ferries among the Greek islands, ferries between Turkey, Greece and Italy.

Here is a summary of frequencies and fares (port taxes NOT included!) Fares and port taxes are subject to change without notice. Port taxes can be surprisingly high—equal to 30% to 62% of the fare on some voyages (for example, the port tax on the voyage between Rhodes and Marmaris is US$24)!

The most reliable off-season service is Bodrum-Kos; second-most reliable is Marmaris-Rhodes.

Greek Island Port Turkish Port Frequency
Voyage Duration One-way Fare
Chios Çeşme Daily 1-1/4 hours US$32
Kos Bodrum Daily except
20 min. (hydrofoil) US$38
Kos Bodrum Daily 50 minutes (motorboat) US$32
Lesvos (Mytileni) Ayvalık 6 days a week? (uncertain) 80 minutes US$50
Rhodes Bodrum Monday & Saturday 2-1/4 hours (hydrofoil) US$63
Rhodes Fethiye May, June, Sept: 3 days a week

July, August: daily except Saturday

1-1/2 hours (hydrofoil) US$82
Rhodes Marmaris Daily 45 minutes (hydrofoil)

2-1/4 hours (motorboat)

Samos Kuşadası Daily 1-1/2 hours US$38

From Piraeus to Chios the sole ferry company is Miniotis Line. From Chios to Çeşme a ferry is available every day from the same company.

The largest Greek ferries database on the net with all Greek ferry companies schedules, connections and prices: <http://www.ferries.gr/>

Ferry between Italy and Turkey or Continental Europe and Turkey

You may also consider the ferries between Italy - Greece and Italy - Turkey as a convenient way of travelling with your car. Available connections are usually between Ancona-Çeşme, Brindisi-Çeşme, Ancona-Patras, Ancona-Igoumenitsa, Venice-Patras and Venice-Igoumenitsa.

You may obtain some information through <http://www.cemar.it/dest/ferries_turkey.htm>.

From Çeşme Harbour to Izmir

Çesme is 80 km northwest of Izmir and is the most western point of Turkish peninsula. It only is 8 miles away from Chios, but the ferry takes an hour for the travel between Chios and Çeşme. Between 6:00 AM to 9:30 PM there are always buses from Çeşme to Izmir. Bus station is very close to the harbour. It takes an hour from Çeşme to Izmir.

There are private money exchange offices around the harbour; but also banks.


Izmir is one of the major city with a large Turkish immigrant population from Balkan countries. Therefore there are several bus companies operating between Bulgaria, Greece and Roumania to Izmir. They are cheap, but uncomfortable.

Their web sites: Avar <http://www.avarturizm.com/>; Kamil Koç <http://www.kamilkoc.com.tr>, Has <http://www.hasturizm.com.tr>, Nilüfer <http://www.niluferturizm.com.tr>, and Varan <http://www.varan.com.tr>.

You can also use them in your domestic transportation in Turkey. Varan is the most comfortable one.

From Izmir Central Bus Terminal to Conference Hall or to Your Hotels

From the bus terminal of Izmir there are buses and dolmuş services to the downtown. To come to the Conference Hall you need to take buses or dolmuş to “Alsancak”. You can pay at the bus or dolmuş; no need to purchase a ticket previously. You could also take a taxi from the Central Bus Terminal to the downtwon which is a little of more expensive (ca. 50 ytl; ca. 27 €).

There are some banks in the Central Bus Terminal of Izmir. There are private money exchange offices in downtown; but also banks (see above).


You can obtain information concerning the visa requirements to Turkey: <http://www.turizm.net/turkey/tips/visa.html>

If you need an official invitation from us, please specify to which Turkish embassy/consulate (or your private address) we need to fax it (or post it) and which language you would prefer (English or Turkish).


Special discount rates for conference participants and attendees will be available at four or five hotels (including breakfast) with different prices and quality in downtown Izmir (Alsancak and Çankaya) that we currently negotiate. We will reserve a number of rooms at these four or five hotels around the conference building. These hotels are conveniently located within easy walking distance of the conference hall and other conference venues, but also to French, German, Italian, British, Greek Consulates and Cultural Centers. A number of fine restaurants are located within a very short walk from the hotel. A list of restaurants will be included in the packet of information that will be distributed upon registration. Lunches and dinner of the second Conference day will not be supported by the conference organization.

We will make the required hotel and travel reservations as soon as we know the exact number of participants. To make your hotel reservations please let us know your arrival and departure dates to Izmir and if you need any hotel reservations. With the Third Circular we will offer you a list of hotels with different prices. You should then inform us what is the best for yourself.

Approximate hotel prices per night will range between 20 to 60 €. It would, of course, be possible to find cheaper or more expensive options.


A participation fee of not less than 40,- € will be charged. The fee includes conference packages, coffee and refreshments at conference breaks, dinner and cocktail of the first and third conference day, name plates, rent for the conference hall and buses for our travel for the post-conference excursions and during the conference time,

But the fee doesn’t include your personal travel expenses to Izmir, your accommodation, the booklet of conference abstracts and the publication of the proceedings. In the Third Circular it will be more precise what the total amount of registration fee will be.

Please note that lunches and dinner of the second conference day should be arranged personally. Breakfasts will be provided by the hotels.

For the payment no credit card can be accepted.

Payment can be made as ytl (New Turkish Liras), euro, $US, or British pounds. Currencies will be available at the Registration Desk at Conference Hall.

Observers are also obliged to pay the same conference fee as the speakers, since they will be charged for the same matters.

A detailed list of all expenses with each prices and currencies will be distributed during the Conference.

If you intend to use PowerPoint or IPhoto, you may send a copy of your presentation on a CD to the Conference Organizer well in advance, or bring it on either CD or portable flash drive the first Conference day, so we may load your file into our host computers.

– Traditional slide projection: Traditional slide projection will also be available using Kodak carousels. Keep in mind that American slide frames do not always function in European/Turkish projection machines. We therefore request that, if you intend to use traditional slides, you bring the slides with you to load into empty carousels that we will provide. Papers utilizing traditional slides may have two projection screens.

Laser pointers will be provided.


For those who did not submit their abstract yet, we urge to send their abstracts as soon as possible. Currently we are in the preparation of the Abstract Booklet for our web site <http://web.deu.edu.tr/terracottas/abstracts.html> as well as abstracts for the publication at Instrumentum 25. The issue number 25 (July 2006) of the journal Instrumentum is planned as a special issue containing the Conference abstracts. Greek and Turkish abstracts were already translated into French and English. We kindly ask you to check your own abstract on the web site and to send us your corrections and/or revisions by e-mail, so we can include them in the publication.

Abstracts could be purchased by Dr. Michel FEUGÈRE from his book stand during the Conference.


Post-conference excursions are planned on June 5th-6th to the both archaeological museums of Izmir, the excavations at the Agora and in Old Smyrna, Ephesus and the Ephesus Museum. At these excursions there will be no common dinner or lunch. Lunch break will be 1:00-2:00 PM.

Transportation will be provided with buses that will be paid through registration fee.

In all of these places Dr. Ergün LAFLI will give an archaeological tour. To these sites it is hoped to obtain a free-entrance as we currently negotiate with the Local Cultural Directory in Izmir.


It is our intention to have five or more international archaeological publishers with their own book stands <http://web.deu.edu.tr/terracottas/publishers.html>. If you would like to sell and/or exchange your own publications, you are more than welcome to bring them with you. We need more publishers to these stands to have more scientific exchange among scholars.


We will submit guidelines for the preparation and submission of your paper for the Proceedings of the Terracottas Conference with the Third Conference Circular.


Although Turkey is situated in a geographical location where climatic conditions are quite temperate, the diverse nature of the landscape, and the existence in particular of the mountains that run parallel to the coasts, result in significant differences in climatic conditions from one region to the other. In Western Anatolia (Aegean region) where Izmir locates, there is a mild Mediterranean climate with average temperatures of 9° C in winter 29° C in summer. Average Temperature of Izmir during June is 25° C. At the beginning of June the sun will be warm and skies will be generally clear. We can expect warm temperatures, but some rain during these days as well.
