Professionals involved in all aspects of goat production, processing and value chains from all over the world will have the opportunity to gain new knowledge, share experiences and explore the exciting city of Antalya and its surroundings.

The theme for the conference is “Contributions of caprine agrosylvopastoral production systems to society and the environment: different strategies for developing goat value chains to face global change", including a range of production systems with a focus on research and evidence for practice, and the contribution to delivery of quality goat products. Our keynote and invited speakers come from around the world, representing the very best in their fields of expertise. Additionally we will have presentations, both oral and poster, from colleagues in practice, education, management and research. Poster sessions are organized to provide a forum for continued and extensive coverage of the topics addressed in the conference and provide the opportunity for young scientists to present their work.

Learning from the past and planning for the future, the 12 th ICG will provide us with an excellent opportunity to share our experiences and projects. In addition to the outstanding scientific program being offered, we encourage delegates to enjoy the famous cultural heritage and natural beauty of Turkey with our social and cultural events.

How to Reach Antalya

+ + By Private Car

Host City Antalya


Antalya, the Turkish Riviera is the most stunning part of Turkey's Mediterranean coast. It is typical of Turkey, a thriving modern city, with a historic heart in the centre of Kaleiçi within the old city walls. This area has seen something of a renaissance in recent years, with many of the wooden Ottoman mansions being restored and turned into boutique hotels. No cars are allowed in the narrow streets of the old town so it is a good place to soak up the atmosphere around the charming harbour; + The symbol of Antalya

The most popular Historic Sites of Antalya Region:

Aspendos: Just 50 km east of Antalya, Aspendos was an important centre of trade during Roman times. Today, the most impressive aspect of Aspendos is her stunning theatre, which was built in approx. 162 AD. It seats 15,000 and has been beautifully preserved. Each year it hosts the Aspendos Opera and Ballet Festival which takes place in June and July and gives you the opportunity to see performances of classics in a magnificent setting. The aqueduct, which supplied water to the city is also still relatively intact and is an impressive sight.

Phaselis: The three harbours of this Lycian port city were once a major commercial centre. In the shelter of Mount Tahtalı, it is a popular stopping off point for yachts, and its clear waters and sandy beaches are popular with sun-seekers. The remains are mostly Roman and include a theatre, baths, aqueducts, Hadrian's Gate, an agora and an acropolis.

Perge: Just 18 kms from Antalya, Perge was an important city in Pamphylia and was visited by St.Paul during his missionary journeys. Today, the city gate flanked by lofty towers, theatre and baths are of interest.

Demre: Also known as Kale, the ancient city of Myra, is mostly famous for its connection with St. Nicholas, who was bishop here in the 4th century. His church is the focus of the annual ceremony which takes place to commemorate him on or around his feast day of 6th December. It is well worth seeing the Roman theatre which remains here, overlooked by spectacular rock tombs, dating from the 4th century BC.

Eating Out in Antalya;

Food and Drink in Antalya Turkish Cuisine ranks among the best in the world alongside French and Cantonese. The vast Ottoman Empire which stretched from the gates of Vienna to the S.tip of the Arabian peninsula lent Turkish cuisine its richness and diversity. A few words here just to give you an idea...

Meze Turkish people traditionally begin their dinner with meze (similar to antipasti or tapas) such as vegetables either stuffed or prepared in olive oil, spicy salsas, yoghurts and dips which are mopped up with crusty Turkish baguettes, deep fried seafood and the list goes on. Some people find that a selection of meze is plenty for their main meal.

Main Meals The Turks are famous for their spicy kebabs of which there are a great many varieties. Fresh fish such as red mullet, sea bass or bream tends to be served simply either grilled or pan-fried. Earth-baked leg of lamb melts in the mouth and the various meat stews and casseroles will leave you asking for more.

Desserts & Pastries Wafer-thin pastry soaked in syrup and layered with ground pistachio nuts is the famous Turkish sweetmeat not to miss. Deep fried dough balls in syrup ( lokma) and Turkish style rice pudding (sütlaç) are all samples of desserts available in most any Turkish restaurant. Many Turks however stick to a platter of sliced fresh fruits and berries after their meal. Fruit in Turkey really does taste better!

Drinks Raki is the national alcoholic drink. Everyone drinks it. It has a strong taste of aniseed and when mixed with water takes on a milky hue. Turkish beers and lagers are excellent as are the wines on offer which come mainly from the vineyards around Ankara and Tekirdag by the sea of Marmara. The big soft drinks companies (Pepsi Co. and Coca-Cola) all produce in Turkey. Fruit juice is widely available. Also try ayran which is made up of plain yoghurt whisked in with spring water and a pinch of salt. It is surprisingly refreshing on a hot summer's day.

Wining & Dining in Antalya Whether you are looking for a traditional Turkish restaurant, an Italian Bistro, a pub, bar or cafe Antalya can come up with something to fit the bill. The city is roughly divided into sections which have their own atmosphere and their own cafes, bars, bistros and restaurants.

Kaleiçi (old town within the Roman city walls) has its own unique blend of bars which cater to the young crowd. Further down you will find the Yat Limani (yacht habour) which lives up to its name with up-market fish restaurants, bars and clubs to dance the night away. The area of Isiklar is packed with stylish yet relaxed European-style cafes, bars and bistros frequented mostly by locals. For a taste of a typical Antalyan fish house where the food is simple but tasty even if the surroundings are somewhat primitive go no further than the Halk Pazari or Peoples Market. Amongst the clatter and noise and smells of the sea you will have a genuine Turkish experience.

Shopping Out in Antalya;

There is a wealth of handicrafts available to the discerning shopper. Traditional items such as the world famous hand made kilims (rugs) in bold colours, beautifully hand-painted ceramics, copper and brassware and ornate Meerschaum pipes make charming souvenirs and gifts.

Excellent quality gold, silver and leather goods are to be had at prices considerably less than outside Turkey. Busy street markets (the most central one takes place on Wednesdays between Isiklar street and the Talya Hotel) are packed full of stallholders jostling to sell you their best tasting fruit and freshest vegetables. Aromatic spices and herbs such as cinnammon, saffron, paprika and mint entice the senses. For more stylish boutiques Antalya can offer excellent quality fashion clothes and accessories for a fraction of the price in Europe. Look no further than Ataturk Street, Konyaalti street, or the recently opened shopping mall called Migros 5M (situated on the Konyaalti Beach side of town). Carpets and rugs are very much part of the Turkish tradition. The Yörüks, who are semi nomadic, live throughout the winter on the plains. They hand produce carpets using vegetable dyes and wool from their own sheep.
