ICOMIR -2021 is an academic international congress covering various social sciences and multi disciplinary fields focusing on migration related issues in order to discuss the complex dynamics of human mobility around the globe. The Conference is a forum for discussion where researchers, young and senior academics working in the field of migration are encouraged to exchange their knowledge, experiences and be able to create new networks for future research and projects in an online environment. Congress attendees will have the chance to benefit from scientific exchange through online meetings with colleagues from different academic backgrounds.

The official languages of the congress are English and Turkish. Oral presentations will be conducted in English or Turkish. All the presentations accepted by the scientific committee and presented at the congress will be published in the book of abstracts. On the other hand, full texts of the presentations evaluated and selected according to double blind peer reviews by the scientific committe will be either published in the full text conference proceedings with an ISBN number (to be published by the end of May) or in a separate ebook printed by an international publisher (meeting the criteria both for academic incentive and associate professorship applications in Turkey) as a book chapter (to be published in 1-15 August).

We hope you will enjoy the congress and we are looking forward to welcoming you in May!
