The conference’s International Scientific and Organisation Committee guarantees its quality. A number of conference proceedings have been published under its guidance, which are included in world-renowned databases, such as Web of Science of Clarivate Analytics. The best articles presented at the conference will be published after the review procedure in DANUBE – a scientific journal indexed in the databases SCOPUS, Erih PLUS, EconLit, EBSCO, ProQuest and many others.

The conference proceedings from 2021 and 2017 are already indexed in the Web of Science database, while the proceedings from the following years have also been accepted into the approval process and we are currently awaiting a decision on their inclusion.

Junior Section – opportunity for young researchers

Our conference supports the activities of PhD students and young researchers. For these participants, a special Junior Section will be created at the conference. In this section, we expect a generous attitude from all participants, a friendly and encouraging environment, and presentations followed by advice and recommendations for the future work of young scientists instead of questions. Participation in this section is particularly suitable for newcomers to the academic world, in the first period of their scientific life. If you are interested in participating in this session, please indicate this when registering.
