Frequently asked questions
How much is the registration fee?
You can find a list of the registration fees here: https://www.uni-bamberg.de/turkologie/studium/veranstaltungen/turkologentag-2018/registration/
Registration is much cheaper for GTOT members, so you might want to consider becoming a member.
Is the conference venue accessible for wheelchairs?
Yes, but not all entrances are barrier-free, so sometimes you will need to take detours or may need some guidance, which we will be happy to provide. Information about the venue (in German only) is available here: bafbs/informationen/baulich-technische-gegebenheiten/sortierung-der-universitaetsgebaeude/feldkirchenstrasse-21/
Most local buses (a bus stop is right in front of the venue) are barrier-free.
I have special dietary needs/habits. Can I get special food at the conference venue?
Vegetarian and vegan food is available at the cafeteria. Allergenes are generally listed, but we can not guarantee that all food and drinks served there are free of allergenes. Helal food is not a big problem in Bamberg, while kosher food is not available.
Prior to the application: If my paper is accepted, is there any funding available for travel expenses, accomodation etc. ?
Unfortunately no. Please look into funding opportunities offered by your home university or your country.
Prior to the application: I will need a visa for Germany. Once my paper is accepted, will I get an invitation letter?
Yes. Please indicate on your application that you will need a visa. If your paper is accepted, we will send you a letter indicating that you are accepted to the conference. Once you have that letter, please make sure to apply quickly to the nearest German Consulate.
Prior to the application: Can I present a paper in a language other than Turkish, English or German?
Prior to the application: I am still a student/graduate student. Can I apply for the conference?
Yes, you can, provided that your paper is research-focused.
Prior to the application: I need confirmation of my partipication for my home university. Can you provide me with such a letter?
Yes, such a letter will be provided along with your name tag, conference program etc.
Prior to registration: How can I transfer the registration fee from abroad?
Within the EU, you should should be able to transfer the money using our IBAN. If you transfer from a non-EU country, you will probably be charged an extra of about 30 Euro. Please make sure to ask your bank about this and add that amount to the transferred sum- otherwise, the bank will deduct it from your registration fee, which will thus remain incomplete.
Prior to registration: Can I transfer the fee via Paypal or Credit Card?
