"Nasreddin Hoca was hired to take ten donkeys to market.  He was careful to keep count of them often.  But, it was a long way to the market.  So, he decided to ride on the lead donkey.  He sat on it backwards, so he could keep count of his charges.  But when he counted them next, he was disappointed to see only nine."  (Thus, the seal of the city of Aksehir, Turkey.)
Dean of the Aksehir Campus of Selcuk University, Prof. Dr. Fehmi Karasioglu, with colleagues at the opening of the conference.
A troupe of folk dancers from the local high school performed a dance for the attendees, clacking spoons to set the rhythms.

Their costumes were beautiful.

And their synchronicity was a delight.

Prof. Alexandra Muțiu of Babeș-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania, was a keynote speaker.

That evening, a traditional Turkish dinner party was held.
