In order to give everyone a chance to speak, we anticipate that one speech should last 15 minutes. 


How many people can submit a paper together? 

Papers can be delivered individually, in pairs or in larger groups. We do not impose limits on the size of such groups, but due to the time constraints of the session they should not be very large. When filling out the submission form, please list all authors after the decimal point. 


Can I submit a paper that I have already given before as part of another conference? 

No, as part of the 13th KMS, we only accept papers that have not yet been presented. However, we are not in a position to verify whether a paper has been presented before, so we rely on trust that those sending in their submissions respect the rules and practices of practicing science.

Do I have to pay an entry fee when submitting an abstract? 

No, we do not charge a registration fee to those who have filled out the application form. There is a fee for participation in KMS, but the fee applies to those whose paper has qualified for the conference. 


Is there a fee for participation in the KMS? 

Participation is paid by those presenting papers. The amount of the conference fee is PLN 110.


When and how should the conference fee be paid?

The conference fee should be paid when the paper is qualified for the conference. Once the abstract is accepted, we will send all the necessary information, such as the bank account number and the deadline for accepting payments. The fee will be paid by wire transfer only. 


What is guaranteed to the speaker in exchange for payment of the conference fee? 

In return, the speaker will receive a gift set, conference materials, priority registration for additional events (such as workshops), a coupon for lunch on the day of the paper presentation, a free drink during the integration, and discounts to selected hotels and hostels. 


We will deliver the paper in a pair or larger group. Does each of us have to pay the conference fee?  

If you are presenting a paper in a pair or larger group, the conference fee does not change and is 110 PLN per paper.
