Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Turkish Catalysis Society and the organizing committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 7th Anatolian School of Catalysis (ASC-7) to be held at Izmir Institute of Technology on 1-5 September 2024. This event upholds the tradition initiated by the Turkish Catalysis Society in Ankara (ASC-1, 2006) followed by school series held in 2008 (ASC-2, İzmir), 2010 (ASC-3, Malatya) 2017 (ASC-4, Izmir), 2019 (ASC-5, Izmir), and 2022 (ASC-6, Izmir). The title of the ASC-7 is “Tale of Catalysis from Past to Future: Lectures from Masters of Catalysis”. 

The ASC-7 focuses on catalysis fundamentals and applications along with recent advances regarding catalyst synthesis, characterization, testing, and industrial catalytic processes. The school provides the opportunity to acquire a more profound understanding of various aspects of the catalysis field and enables researchers to connect with globally recognized experts from academia and industry. This opportunity allows them to gain insights from these experts' experiences and expand their professional network, fostering potential collaborations in the future. The ASC-7 covers the following topics: fundamentals of homogeneous, heterogeneous, bio-, electro-, photocatalysis, catalytic reaction engineering, advanced catalyst synthesis methods, in-situ and synchrotron characterization, sustainable and green catalytic processes, and industrial catalysis research. The school is designed for early career researchers, graduate students, and professionals working in industry, who require deepening their insights into catalytic processes. The ASC-7 consists of invited lectures, industrial talks, and poster contributions. The posters will be selected by the scientific committee, based on the innovative aspect and scientific level.

We hope that everyone will benefit from the ASC-7. Our aspiration is that ASC-7 will serve as an adaptable platform for both structured and informal exchanges with colleagues from both academia and industry, igniting fresh perspectives on research and collaborative endeavors.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to you in advance for your kind interest in our school, your attendance, and your valuable contributions. 

We are looking forward to seeing you at the 7th Anatolian School of Catalysis.

  How to get to IZTECH?

General Information
The İzmir Institute of Technology (IZTECH) is a Turkish state university established in 1992 to offer higher education and carry out research in the fields of science and technology. The medium of instruction at our institute is English. We are currently the only internationally distinguished advanced technical university in Turkey. We established graduate programs in 1994 in the center of İzmir and began admitting students to undergraduate programs in 1998. The campus relocated from the city center to the seaside town of Urla, İzmir in 1999. Our institute owns approximately 8,600 acres of land, 32 acres of which are currently dedicated to education and research. Within Turkey, our university is known as “İzmir Yüksek Teknoloji Enstitüsü,” abbreviated as “İYTE.” Our international name is İzmir Institute of Technology, or “IZTECH” for short. IZTECH is divided into three faculties and one graduate school.

The Graduate School

Education and research are carried out in 18 undergraduate programs, 27 master’s programs and 19 doctoral programs. 9 of the master’s programs and 3 of the doctoral programs are interdisciplinary. We have a total of around 6769 students, 5298 of which are undergraduates.

Education and research at İZTECH conform to international standards. Our student-centered, project-based education methods aim to help students become modern researchers, inventors, and entrepreneurs who embrace teamwork and produce innovative technology. Our graduates are highly respected both nationally and internationally and are admitted to top universities abroad for postgraduate studies. In addition, we provide laboratories with the latest technology to help students advance in their respective fields.

İZTECH currently hosts 444 ongoing research projects funded by various institutions, including the European Union, the Turkish State Planning Organization (DPT), the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK), and the Turkish Industry Theses Support Program (SANTEZ). These projects enrich the international scientific community through original research and design. Another on-campus institution that supports our mission to contribute to the fields of science and technology is the “İzmir Technology Development Zone,” called Teknopark, which has become synonymous with the institute itself. About 181 technology companies operate within Teknopark. Our students participate in research and complete internships with these companies in their fields of interest. This helps them to establish connections and jump-start their entrepreneurial careers. Post-graduation, students can open their own companies within or outside of Teknopark thanks to their hands-on experience.





Urla is a charming spot along Turkey's Aegean coast. It's a place where beautiful beaches, a lively town center, and a rich cultural history blend seamlessly.

Urla's food scene is a delight, featuring fresh seafood, local produce, and fragrant herbs that bring Aegean flavors to life. The area's wines, part of the Urla Wine Route, are something special, too.

Whether you're lounging at Urla Beach or strolling through downtown Urla's historic streets, something is captivating about experiencing the local culture.

Urla, nestled in Turkey's Izmir province, is a haven for those seeking authentic Aegean experiences.
