Venue of LASTE 2019
LASTE 2019 was organised in Izmir, one of Turkey’s most pleasant cities.
Located in the west of Turkey and on the Aegean shores, İzmir, the pearl of the Aegean, is the third largest city in Turkey.
Izmir owes its position as an economically and socially dynamic city to its location, climate and the fact that it has been a home to many different cultures and religions. Persians, Ancient Greeks, Assyrians, Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans are just a few of the dozens of different civilizations that the city has hosted throughout its long history.

The conference venue was Swiss Hotel. Swissotel Büyük Efes, Izmir is a five-star deluxe hotel located in the heart of the city’s commercial hub and overlooking the spectacular Kordon Promenade, on Turkey’s Aegean Sea.
The speeches and workshops were focussing mainly on the political issues in literature and translation, teaching languages in creative ways, translating religious texts and cultural notions, serving community though teaching and support, and many others.
During the conference days our guests could visit historical places of Izmir, enjoy its seacoast and explore the ancient city of Ephesus located near Izmir.
