Learning, which originates in a desire for knowledge, has always been fundamental in the shaping of social life. It has lost nothing of its importance with developments in technology. Under the influence of Information Technology (IT), learning has acquired new dimensions, discussed quite regularly on many levels.

The aim of this conference is to discuss future innovations in the field of learning. The conference will encourage a debate on strategies for the development of the most effective methods, techniques, and technologies that will serve humankind in the lifelong learning process. Human beings are, after all, centrally involved in learning, and its fundamental “raison d’être”. This year, to be different from other years, the special theme of the conference "Distance Education and Practices in Health Sector" has been selected.

"E-learning", which in itself is an innovation, promises to acquire even greater importance in the future. We are therefore calling for contributions (research papers* and posters) focusing on "e-learning", and examining the following issues through original research and exploration.

İstanbul University

Istanbul University is one of the oldest educational institutions in the world. There have been many changes in its face and constitution from 1453 to the present. It was founded firstly as a Madrasah. After a while, it was turned to a Darülfunun, House of Science, which was a basic version of a university. In the 10th year of the Republic, Ataturk made a university reform and then Istanbul University was officially established in August 1st, 1933 by the Grand National Assembly of Turkey (TBMM). Thus Istanbul University began to give education as "the first and only university" of Turkey.
