The International students’ symposium on logistics and international business (ISSLIB) has become a distinguished event.
Last year, we celebrated our 10th anniversary, but we had to organize a virtual event due to known reasons. We are convinced that this November, the situation with travelling restrictions will change and we meet in person.
This years’ symposium will take place in Istanbul. Our host is the School of Transportation and Logistics of Istanbul University.
This event gives students and professors a unique opportunity to share their knowledge and research with their peers and establish international connections, which will last a lifetime.
Through lectures of distinguished professors from different universities and presentations of students’ research, participants gain an insight into the trends and contemporary aspects of international business and logistics. Also, excursions to companies will allow participants to see the practical aspects of business and logistics.
Students attending the symposium should prepare papers about their research, either practical or theoretical. The papers will be published in the Journal of Transportation and Logistics. A template for papers is available on the symposium website.
Participation at the symposium is free of charge, but registration is compulsory.

There are 65.000 undergraduate and 14.500 graduate students.
Today, many enterprises have gone beyond borders and become multinational as a result of intense competition. Down from 1999, Turkey has been enlarging its logistics sector and has been in cooperation with over 40 countries.
