A Detailed Account of The International Conference on the Origins of Life and the Universe The International Conference on the Origin of Life and the Universe was held by the Technics & Science Research Foundation at the Conrad Istanbul Bosphorus Hotel’s Conference Hall on August 24, 2016. The event hosted scientists from the USA and Turkey as keynote speakers. With the attendance of academicians, researchers, students and businessmen from various countries, this important international conference took on a remarkable responsibility in accentuating the importance of science, presenting scientific truths and pronouncing the scientific data conveyed by the latest scientific developments.
The keynote speakers of the International Conference, which was held with more than 500 participants, were esteemed scientists who are experts in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology and astrophysics. They have authored countless books and addressed audiences at conferences and universities around the world.
Following the breakfast, the conference commenced with A Moment of Silence for Martyrs of 15th of July and the National Anthem. The opening speech was delivered by Altuğ Berker, the Former President of the Preservation of National Values.
