Every two years the European Convention on Turkic, Ottoman and Turkish Studies “Turkologentag” takes place at a different university.

It is hosted by GTOT in conjunction with the Turkology / Ottoman Studies Department of the host university. The Turkologentag 2020 planned in collaboration with the Department of Slavic, Turkic and Circum-Baltic Studies at the Johannes Gutenberg-University in Mainz had to be cancelled due to the Covid19 pandemic. The next convention will be held in 2023 in Vienna/Austria.

You can find the programs of the last three conventions here: 2018 in Bamberg, 2016 in Hamburg and 2014 in Munich.

Forerunner of the Turkologentags was the German Turkologists Conference, which met six times between 1987 and 2005.
