Abstract: “Bedesten / bedestan” (multidomed market halls) being the center of the commercial texture of a typical Ottoman Town used to serve for selling and purchasing of valuable goods and for their storage. Those masonry structures were built of stone or brick and they were very well protected outside. In all economically developed Ottoman towns one could always found a “bedesten” belonged to the vaqf (pious foundation). Being an important city from the XIIIth century on, in Konya too, a classical type “bedesten” with nine unit was built in Kanuni (Suleyman the Magnificent) Era in 1538 A.D. It was built and donated by Mevlana Kadri elebi in charge of “mufti” and “kad ”. However, basing on vaqf records, it is also stated by some historians that there could be another “Bedesten” which was built earlier in Konya as a socially and economically developed city located at the junction of important trading roads of the period. Just a few documents, such as some photographs and inscription panel of the “Bedesten” reached today and exhibited in Konya Mevlana Museum. It was demolished in 1898 and rebuilt as a school of industry. At present it is possessed by Konya Governorship. In this study, the architectural features of the “Bedesten” were described and a restitution scheme was proposed basing on the archival records, historic documents and photographs. A comparative analysis was also done by the examination of other “bedestens” with nine units found in other Ottoman towns.

Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences (NHESS) & Discussions (NHESSD) , 2012, DOI: 10.5194/nhess-12-295-2012
Abstract: Earthquakes registering magnitudes Md = 4.5 and 4.7 struck the city of Konya, Central Anatolia, on 10–11 September 2009, causing very slight damages. The earthquake epicenters were located at the east of Sille District along the Konya Fault Zone, a dip-slip fault. The nature and seismicity of the fault zone indicates that it is capable of producing earthquakes of moderate magnitudes. This paper summarizes the geologic data along the fault zone and documents groundwater conditions and analyzes borehole and geotechnical data of the Konya city. The residential area of the city covers an area of approximately 1150 square kilometers and consists almost entirely of flat land except for a small part of rugged land in the southwestern corner. Groundwater and geotechnical data were collected and analyzed to evaluate the liquefaction potential of deposits under the Konya city. This preliminary investigation indicates that areas for liquefaction are generally limited to the eastern and east central parts of the city.
Determinants of the innovating supply chain in Tunisian manufacturing firms

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to analyse the role played by two groups of factors in innovation activities: firm structural characteristics (size, R&D expenditures, age of firms, ownership and qualification of human capital) and market characteristics (market structure, sectors, exportation, networking and science-industry linkage). In order to achieve this goal, we use a sample of 586 Tunisian firms collected by the first CIS (Community Innovation Survey) done in Tunisia in 2005. The findings are as follow: first, the relationship between innovation and skill level is stronger for product innovation which is ‘new-to-the-market’ rather than ‘new-to-the-firm’ and process innovation. Firms require an adequate stock of technically qualified manpower. It is found that technically qualified manpower is needed to absorb new technologies, modify them, create and develop new products, particularly scientists and engineers. Second, R&D expenditures are important for product innovation. Third, forming co-operative arrangements with other firms or institutions still appear to be important for innovating firms. Networking is supposed to be primarily beneficial for small companies involved in related lines of businesses. In particular Science-Industry linkage is a significant determinant for product and process innovation. And finally, high levels of concentration in the market are the most conducive to process innovation.
