Dear WAO members, parents and other guests…


Free registration is provided for all participants in our WAO-BIAC2 summer meeting.


This has been possible with the great contributions of Izmir Democracy University and the support of supporting organizations. We would like to express our gratitude to Professor Bedriye Tunçsiper, the rector of Izmir Democracy University, for this. We would also like to thank our devoted scientists who made presentations at this congress without any charge.


We are very happy that we were able to achieve this in this difficult year, thanks to the beautiful people who supported us. In our community, a meeting with such a rich speaker participation has never been held for free.Please let as many people as possible take advantage of this opportunity. Notify everyone you want to attend, let them know they can register for free.
