We are looking forward to this special edition of the Scientific-Technical Conference MATBUD’2020 to be held at Cracow University of Technology, Poland. This year the event will be organised within the framework of the International Academic Partnership project financed by the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA):
The goal of the project is to develop long-lasting solutions in the field of scientific cooperation, to be implemented as part of International Academic Partnerships. The conference will host partner organisations from 23 research units worldwide, who will actively participate in the sessions and present the results of their research on sustainable materials and technologies.
Please follow the updates at the www.matbud.edu.pl as all the information and the news related to the conference will be available there. Moreover, the registration and paper submission are to be done using the webpage, which also provides the access to the reviewing system. All conference-related correspondence should be send to the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prospective authors are invited to submit original papers which have not been considered for publication elsewhere. Submissions are subjected to the peer-review process by members of the Scientific Committee and evaluated on their originality, significance, interest, relevance and quality of presentation. To ensure high visibility, all accepted papers will be published in an open-access format as free to read and download. Every document will be identified, enabling cross-referencing (DOI).
Similarly, to previous editions, the MATBUD'2020 Conference Proceedings will be submitted for the indexation in main scientific databases (Web of Science, Scopus).
Please rest assured that like in the past eight editions (in 1996, 1998, 2000, 2003, 2007, 2011, 2015 and 2018) we will make every effort to ensure that this conference edition at least meets the same high scientific and organisational standards as the previous ones.
Hoping that you will find our conference interesting, we are looking forward to receiving your contributions to this special edition of MATBUD conference.
