Register now to participate!
After closing of the abstract submission period for the upcoming EMES international conference, we were nicely surprised to receive more than 400 abstracts for paper, panel and poster sessions. A closer look at the submitting authors showed that there are over 100 PhDs among them, something that feels quite positively after the open commitment of EMES to this community.
In the opinion of one of the reviewers “it’s very good to anticipate so many participants but also the quality seems to be very high. As I saw from my abstracts they are from a very broad range of themes and really interesting. Also we can see that the field is maturing theoretically. And this is very good. It is going to be a brilliant conference.
