The Organizing Committee of the XXXII. International Congress of IULTCS cordially welcomes all participating and attending scientists to this unique event that is set to take place on May 29-31, 2013. We would like to share with you our enthusiasm as the hosts of first IULTCS congress to take place in our part of the world, a world of borders and bridges, known as Eurasia.
The congress will cover the latest developments in a wide array of exciting and important topics that will be of interest to everyone engaged in the various aspects of leather processing science and technology as well as environmental control. We anticipate that the 2013 IULTCS Istanbul Congress will be a rewarding platform of exchange for Turkish participants and IULTCS members from all around the world. The event will not simply be a reiteration of past IULTCS meetings, but will also offer all participants and attendees a great opportunity to experience Istanbul's rich history, astonishing beauty and vibrant life.
You may access future updates and information regarding this upcoming event through our website, http://www.iultcs2013.org
We look forward to seeing you on May 29, 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey's most spectacular city.

INVITATION TO 32ND IULTCS ISTANBUL CONGRESS
I am proud to announce that seven years after the success of our first IULTCS regional event, Istanbul will be the host city for the 32nd IULTCS Congress in 2013. While the current priority of IULTCS is Valencia 2011, organized by our hosts AQEIC, I would like to inform you in advance that DETEK has already started preparations for Istanbul 2013.
DETEK has established the "Organization Committee" last year, which selected a professional agency, ZED Event Management and Consultancy. Then the committee decided the place and date of the congress. Taking into account the success of the last regional event, they have again chosen Istanbul for the 32nd Congress, a city which not only bridges two continents and hosts many cultures and but also is historically a city of leather manufacture. The date for the Congress was defined as 29th-31st May 2013, a date that won't affect any other significant international leather event and where the climate is generous for enjoying Istanbul.
The Congress venue is also already booked.
I am proud now to announce you that we at DETEK propose to build upon the many successes of our 2006 event and look forward to hosting you as we work together to ensure the safe future of the leather world. Turkish society is aware of the important role of IULTCS and will hence create the right platform to the Union for further improvements.
Our first task is of course to support AQEIC for our next congress in Valencia 2011. The success of this congress will pave the way to the success of Istanbul 2013.
