The conference volume will be published by a renowned publisher in Romania, which guarantees its highly academic and graphic contents and will be handed to the participants on the occasion of the event. At the same time, the volume will be sent to the libraries of the participating faculties.

The papers should be written in Romanian or English. The papers sent for publication must be approved by the PhD scientific advisors. No formal proof will be required by the organizers in this regard, but they may contact at any time the PhD supervisor in order to ask details about the quality of the respective paper.
