Poster Presentations

A poster session is a graphic presentation of an author’s research. Authors illustrate their study findings by displaying graphs, photos, diagrams, and a small amount of text on poster boards. A good format to follow is: Title and author(s); a brief introduction; experimental details, if novel; results and conclusion.

We recommend A1 size poster in portrait. Organizers will provide participants with all the necessary equipment to hang the posters.

Oral Presentations

The lecturers are kindly asked to deliver material of the lecture (electronic version) to the Organising committee during registration. The materials of oral presentations will be distributed to all the participants after the conference.

Full papers after review can be published in journal “Materials Science – Medžiagotyra” (indexed in Clarivate Analytics Web of Science, impact factor 0.45  (2017), 5 – year impact factor 0.563 (Journal Citation Reports Web of Science)). The papers prepared according to the requirements of the journal should be submitted using Open Journal System of “Materials Science-Medžiagotyra” and printed copy of the paper should be handed during the conference to the secretary of the organizing committee. The submission should be done before 12th of August 2019. Information for authors in English.

Palanga is an international seacoast resort for active recreation and rehabilitation treatment also offering a wide range of entertainments. It became a famous resort in early XXth century and presently is one of the largest resorts and tourism centres of Lithuania. As a recreation place, it has already operated for a century and a half. People come here to escape from their daily urbanized routines and gain strength from natural resources: the sun, sea water and fresh pine-forests’ air. There also are many things to see in Palanga: from the wonderful white sand beaches and variety of remarkable landscapes to Museum of Amber, Botanical Gardens, Birutė’s hill and Church of Saint Marie. It is also a fine plan to have a great night out with your friends in one of the bars and nightclubs, of which the town now has plenty.
Palanga has its own small airport with the international flights from Latvia, Norway and Denmark. One can also use Vilnius international airport – still the most convenient way to enter Lithuania. More detailed information about Lithuania and Palanga can be found on the websites:
