MathVillage_SirinceTR The venue of the workshop is the Nesin Foundation Mathematics Village. It is located 1-2 km away from the historical town Şirince (read it as Shee-rin-jay). The town is some 70 km distance to Izmir, which is the 3rd largest city in Turkey.

We will arrange a shuttle service from/to the Izmir Airport for the arrival and departure days. The current shuttle plan is

  • September 14th (Sunday), from the Izmir airport to the Math Village
    • at 12.45 and at 19.15
  • September 21st (Sunday), from the Math Village to the Izmir airport
    • at 13.00 and at 15.00

In case they do not match to your arrival time or point, you can use public transportation:  See this link for a more detailed explanation regarding how to reach the math village from Izmir. Summarizing the important & recommended points:

  • Izmir -> Selcuk -> Sirince -> the Math Village
    • Izmir -> Selcuk (75 km)
      • If you are coming from the city center of Izmir, go to the main bus station, there are regular buses from Izmir to Selcuk from 7.00 AM till 21.00 PM every 30-40 minutes.
      • If you are coming from the Izmir airport, you do need to go the main bus station, the Gaziemir-Selcuk buses (or minibuses) stop near the airport.
