The conference is an excellent platform for networking, nurturing meaningful interactions between young researchers, seasoned experts, and stakeholders.

Antalya and Türkiye, with its rich heritage in saline water landscapes and breathtaking beauty, also offers an excellent opportunity for salt lake researchers to connect, showcase their work, and strengthen ties with the academic community.

Your participation, insights, and contributions will undoubtedly enrich the conference, and we can't wait to welcome you to ICSLR'24. We appreciate your continued interest in our conference series and eagerly anticipate your presence.

Host City


Antalya, the Turkish Riviera is the most stunning part of Türkiye's Mediterranean coast. It is typical of Türkiye, a thriving modern city, with a historic heart in the center of Kaleiçi within the old city walls. Antalya has a backdrop of stunning mountain scenery, and the city is set high on cliffs, with many of its grandest hotels overlooking the sea on the outskirts of the town.

The most popular Historic Sites of the Antalya Region:

Aspendos: Just 50 km east of Antalya, Aspendos was an important center of trade during Roman times. Today, the most impressive aspect of Aspendos is her stunning theatre, which was built in approx. 162 AD. It seats 15,000 and has been beautifully preserved. Each year it hosts the Aspendos Opera and Ballet Festival which takes place in June and July and gives you the opportunity to see performances of classics in a magnificent setting. The aqueduct, which supplied water to the city, is still relatively intact and is an impressive sight.

Perge: Just 18 km from Antalya, Perge was an important city in Pamphylia and was visited by St. Paul during his missionary journeys. Today, the city gate flanked by lofty towers, theatre and baths is of interest.

Phaselis: The three harbors of this Lycian port city were once major commercial centers. In the shelter of Mount Tahtalı, it is a popular stopping point for yachts, and its clear waters and sandy beaches are popular with sun-seekers. The remains are mostly Roman and include a theatre, baths, aqueducts, Hadrian's Gate, an agora, and an acropolis.

Demre: Also known as Kale, the ancient city of Myra, is primarily famous for its connection with St. Nicholas, who was bishop here in the 4th century. His church is the focus of the annual ceremony which takes place to commemorate him on or around his feast day of 6th December. It is well worth seeing the Roman theatre which remains here, overlooked by spectacular rock tombs, dating from the 4th century BC.
