The EKISTICS 2013 Ankara Meeting was held between 7 - 11th, June 2013 in Ankara/Turkey, at both Middle East Technical University (METU) and Hacettepe University Beytepe Campus.
At the METU sessions, following the opening speech by Prof.Dr. Ahmet Acar (Rector of METU), Prof.Dr. Guven Arif Sargm (Vice-President of the Chamber of Architects of Turkey) and Dr. Omit Ozcan (Vice President of Chamber of City Planners of Turkey) made remarkable presentations on the main theme of the Meeting with special reference to the recent events that the Turkish society experienced in June 2013.
The sessions at Hacettepe University Beytepe Campus started with an open­ ing address by Prof.Dr. Reyyan Başaran on behalf of Prof.Dr. Murat Tuncer, Rector of Hacettepe University. The exhibition prepared and presented at the end of Hacettepe sessions by the Departments of Graphic Design and Ceramics at the Faculty of Fine Arts on the very theme of the meeting was impressive. The exhibition broadened, illuminated and visualised the theme of the Meeting. During all the sessions exciting discussions were made on the papers that were presented.
The papers presented are classified under the following sub-themes: i) ur­banization, urban life and cities, communality and security, ii) urban and re­gional disparities and degradation, urban transformations, socio-spatial ex­clusion, urban renewal projects, iii) urbanity, crime, social alienation, security and gender problems, iv) socio spatial contexts, socialization and security, v) global national geopolitical context, vi) security, ecological issues, security and sustainability, and finally, vii) disaster security, planning and design.
At the Doxiadis Lecture, Prof.Dr. Baykan Günay, from METU Department of City and Regional Planning, made an impressive presentation on the Spatial History of the Capital Ankara. Following the lecture, a city tour for the purpose of exhibiting the traces of planning activities from the Early Republican period to recent urban development in Ankara was guided by Assoc. Prof.Dr. Çağatay Keskinok.
The aim of the EKISTICS 2013 Meeting was to synthesize the contributions of different disciplines varying from planning to design, from architecture to ur­banism, from geography to sociology, to urban policy and management stud­ies, from engineering to human studies and to public health etc., in an overall understanding of the science of human settlements, within the agenda of the problematic issues of security and poverty. We hope that the EKISTICS 2013 Ankara Meeting has made significant contributions to the Science of Human Settlements in relation to the main theme of the Meeting.
