No such thing per-SE from ICANN's side. Nevertheless, we can arrange to go
out together and enjoy Istanbul.

Someone has uploaded the Istanbul transportation map to the Dropbox in some
CodePoint folder. I moved it to the Istanbul meeting folder to be easier to
reach. <wlEmoticon-smile[1].png>


See you all there

Ive asked the hotel and below is the response.


The metro starts at 06:00 am <x-apple-data-detectors://0>  on Sundays. If
you are arriving in Ataturk Airport please take the metro until Aksaray and
from there you will need to go to the other metro lane to come to Osmanbey

Please find the link for the metro guide below.


Hope this would help.

Thank you Fahd for your reply,

So it looks it's the first time in Istanbul for many of those attending,
I found this link hich looks usefull:

Best options IMHO, that you either take a Taxi from the airport which cost
about 20 Euro, or take the HAVATAS Airport Shuttle Bus to Taksim (10TL) and
then a Taxi from there to the Hotel. Its only 1.2Km away from where the Bus

Thank you Hazem for your email.

In reply to your questions:

.         Yes, the meeting venue and the accommodation venue are the same
place; i.e. Ramada Plaza Istanbul (AKA Ramada Plaza Osmabey)

.         This is the first time for me in Istanbul, too. Thus, I'd suggest
you check the airport website at
http://www.ataturkairport.com/en-EN/Pages/Main.aspx for such information. I
am unable to do this as I am traveling back home today, and will not have
time to investigate this. Any volunteers to check this out?

Hope that helps.

Dear Fahd,

Just to be well directed , I couldn't find any info about where our meeting
will take place.  Is it in the same hotel we're staying at or at the ICANN

Another issue,  that would be much appreciated if you could tell us the best
way to reach the Hotel from the airport,  since that is my first visit to

Friends and Colleagues,

As we are preparing to attend the 2nd TF-AIDN F2F meeting in Istanbul next
week during June 8-12, here is some information that might be useful:

.         Our wiki space can be found

.         The agenda for the 5 days can be found
pi=v2> &modificationDate=1401903319000&api=v2>. We will start at 08.30
Istanbul time (UTC+3.00), and expect to end at 18.00 Istanbul time.

.         We have an Adobe Connect room at
https://icann.adobeconnect.com/meswg/. Those presenting remotely are kindly
requested to send me their slide-decks beforehand to be uploaded to Adobe

.         For those willing to join remotely, here are the remote
participation details:

Access number: 1.800.5506865 (USA Toll Free Number via Skype)

Please note that these dial-out details MIGHT get changed as I am seeking a
top-quality teleconference bridge that would not fail all those who join

As I am traveling back home on Friday, my access to email might be limited.
For any urgent matters, please do not hesitate to call me at 962.79.5111942.
If my phone is closed, I most probably would be air-borne.

I look forward to seeing those of you planning on being in Istanbul, and
looking forward for a productive meeting.

Thank you, and safe travels to those travelling.
