General Chair’s Message

Dear ASHRAE members of RAL,

On behalf of RAL CRC 2015 Organising Committee, I am delighted to invite all RAL members, RAL officers, ASHRAE President and Staff to attend the RAL Chapters Regional Conference of 2015 which will be held in Istanbul -Turkey between the 2nd – 4th of October, 2015.

Istanbul, a transcontinental city spanning across Europe and Asia, is the historical, cultural and economic hub of both Turkey and the world.  With a population of 15 million, İstanbul is the largest metropolitan area in both Europe and the Middle East.

The Bosphorus strait, passing through the heart of İstanbul and beautifully outlining both continents, holds a ciritical position for international navigation as the only connection between the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara.  I hope you will take advantage of the many opportunities to enjoy the beauty of Istanbul and its surroundings during your trip.

Taking place in one of the fastest growing cities of the World, the ASHRAE Turkish Chapter is proud to announce that the RAL CRC 2015 will be held under the theme of “Urban Transformation and Energy Efficiency”. There will be many contributions to the program from distinguished technical professionals from around the world.  Additionally, attendees will have many opportunities to meet with the most prestigious engineers and scientists of the HVAC-R sector while concurrently being able to take in the breathtaking beauty of Istanbul.

As the fastest growing chapter in RAL, The ASHRAE Turkish Chapter will be honored with your presence in this memorable event. We are planning an unforgettable and unique program which we hope will inspire many  CRC meetings to come. Therefore, I look forward to greeting you at the RAL CRC 2015 Istanbul.

With my warmest regards,

Prof. Dr. M. Barış ÖZERDEM

ASHRAE Turkish Chapter President
