YSF Venue and Travel


The 16th YSF will be held at the KoruMar De Luxe Hotel (Gazi Beğendi Mevkii, Kuşadası / Aydın, 09400), where all participants of the 16th YSF will stay during the YSF and the FEBS Congress. The hotel is 8−10 minutes by shuttle bus from the FEBS Congress venue (see below). 

The KoruMar De Luxe Hotel is superbly located close to the sea, and it presents a high standard of accommodation. With six meeting halls, the hotel is suitable for international conferences, seminars and meetings. The YSF meeting hall is the largest hall and has a sea view. From the KoruMar De Luxe Hotel, YSF participants will also have easy access to the area’s most famous sights such as the ancient city of Ephesus, the House of the Virgin Mary, the village of Şirince and Pigeon Island.

YSF participants do not need to book a room or pay accommodation fees. The YSF Organizing Committee will take care of the accommodation.
