We deplore, and we are saddened at, the atrocity in Istanbul last weekend,
as we deplore the Brussels bombings this week. But we note that the most
recent events in Turkey have not changed the travel advice from the vast
majority of governments.

Visitors to Turkey are advised to exercise a high degree of caution, and we
are going ahead with the PCST conference in this context. Participants
should note that the conference venue is in a quiet district of Istanbul.
It is easily reached from the airport, and over 3 kilometres from the
scenes of two recent attacks.

However, conference participants may have to miss some of the
'extra-curricular' activities often associated with attending a conference.
It is strongly advised, for example, not to gather in large groups in
locations that are especially popular with tourists.

Together with the conference hotel and the conference management company,
we aim to ensure the best-possible arrangements for a safe and successful

The conference programme is being updated continuously, with further
details being added. As you can see, we have a busy and stimulating
conference ahead of us. We look forward to seeing you there.

If you haven't you booked your accommodation yet, we suggest you to do so
quickly. There are still rooms available at the conference hotel at a
discounted rate.

Gultekin Cakmakci, chair, Local Organising Committee

Brian Trench, president, PCST Network.
