Can I book the Swissotel outside of the conference days?

Yes.  The “book now” on the website takes you directly to the promotion code , which is only valid July 10-13. You can separately book other days on the Swissotel website.

What are the Tracks and what is the exact program of the conference?

As every year, the Marketing Science conference builds its Tracks from the submitted abstracts, and only posts the exact program in March. You can build your own “track” by submitting a special session proposal.

What are the limitations for abstract submissions?

As stated on the actual abstract submission page (after you log in), the abstract limit is 1800 characters (this includes blank spaces).

What are the registration fees?

The registration fee for the Doctoral Consortium is $125. For the main conference please check the attachment.

Can I pay the registration fee for the Conference early, and pay the Consortium fee later once I know I have been accepted?

Yes, if you pay the Conference fee before March 16 you can take advantage of the ‘early bird fee’. You can then pay the Consortium fee later, once you know you have been accepted. To attend the Consortium you must pay both the Conference fee and the Consortium fee by April 16.

Will there be transportation between my hotel to the Consortium venue?

There will be shuttles between the ‘Swissotel the Bosphorus’ and the Consortium venue. The schedule of the shuttles will be posted later. You can take a taxi from your hotel to the Swissotel and ride the shuttle to the Consortium venue from there.

How is the current situation in and around the conference venue (Swissotel the Bosphorus)?

The Swissotel is situated in a private park-like area of the city, together with the other recommended hotels, 2 km away from Taksim Square. The EMAC conference proceeded successfully Tuesday-Friday with more than 700 participants in the ITU Macka campus, which is closer to Taksim Square than the Swissotel is.

How is the current situation in old Istanbul?

Old Istanbul has not seen any protests, and we are fully confident that July won’t see any either. This neighborhood contains most tourist sites in Istanbul, and has many value-for-money hotels.
