Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This is the third SI dedicated to the Scientific Conferences of the Doctoral Schools from “Dunărea de Jos” University of Galaţi; the first two concerned the 9th and 10th editions in 2021 and 2022.

We are seeking submissions for the 11th edition of the Scientific Conference of the Doctoral Schools from “Dunărea de Jos” University of Galaţi. The objective of the 2023 Conference is to provide a common forum for perspectives and challenges in doctoral research, allowing researchers to convene and share state-of-the-art developments in their field. At this conference, our institution aims to promote excellence and set up partnerships and collaborative relationships through the exchange of knowledge and expertise.

As in the previous editions, the conference invites oral and poster presentations in sections related to the main domains of doctoral research at UDJG. Workshops, exhibition stands, and social activities are also included, all with the aim of developing and improving the network of the doctoral schools.

Recommended topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

  1. Advanced research in mechanical and industrial engineering;
  2. Progress in food science and bio-resources engineering;
  3. Advances in engineering and management in agriculture and rural development;
  4. Advanced research in electrical/electronic engineering, system engineering and information technologies;
  5. Future of eco-nanotechnologies, functional materials and coatings chemistry;
  6. Electrochemistry in life sciences.

All the papers presented at the conference and accepted for publication in this Special Issue will receive a 50% discount on the APC.
