It is definitely predatory. Lots of spelling mistakes in the description on the eventbrite page. Also the organiser is given as: "Mr. Metin", not professional. The biggest scam is that it is organized by the fake "Charles institute of European studies" (Google it!), which could easily be confused with the legitimate "Charlemagne Institute of European studies". Of course, the organizers want you to be confused. In fact, the eventbrite announcement of this conference uses the Charlemagne logo, despite the organizers being the Charles version. I thought it was just a spelling mistake, but it is a crude attempt to deceive potential participants.

Avoid this conference.
