International Sopot Youth Conference "Where the World is Heading" 2020

Miejsce: Institute of Oceanology PAN, Sopot

The Sopot Science Association (SSA) welcomes contributions to the fifth edition of the International Conference entitled Where the World is Heading. This conference is the continuation of the Sopot Youth Forum. Since 2008 over 450 scientists from different countries have presented their work during the Conference.


Attention‼ Update‼

Due to the introduction of the epidemic emergency status, registration on KM 2020 is delayed until further notice. 
If you are interested, please follow the page due to changes in the event schedule.

Registeration will be open soon (up to the end of the February)


We invite young scientists or science enthusiasts, university students, Ph.D. students and young doctors to present their work, visions, opinions, and thoughts. The Sopot Youth Conference consists of two thematic blocks: humanities and social sciences and the second one-natural and physical sciences. Both oral (15 minutes) and poster presentations are welcome. In justified cases of foreign participants, the Scientific Committee may consider Skype presentations. Number of such cases will be limited.

Due to the multidisciplinary character of the Sopot Youth Conference abstracts and presentations should be prepared in an intelligible manner. The Conference language is English.

Our Conference Proceedings are registered, and have an ISBN, and thus can be cited.


Just like in previous editions this year the best presentations will be granted FINANCIAL AWARDS.
