The symposium "UNIVERSITARIA SIMPRO" International Symposium is a multidisciplinary one, with eleven scientific sections covering all topics related directly or indirectly to the mining, environment, mechanical, electrical, safety and systems engineering, economics, social sciences and humanities, but is not restricted to these ones.


The Symposium will be held under the theme of QUALITY AND INNOVATION IN EDUCATION, RESEARCH AND INDUSTRY - THE SUCCESS TRIANGLE FOR A SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL DEVELOPMENT and would strive to maintain a balance between research and applications. Topics include, but are not limited to the following:

  1. Advances in safety science and occupational risk management

  2. Challenges in mining, mineral processing, surveying and civil engineering

  3. Sustainable environmental engineering and protection
  4. Innovational challenges in electrical engineering and energetic technology

  5. Developments in systems control, information technology and cybersecurity

  6. Industrial, mechanical and transportation engineering

  7. Applied mathematics, informatics and physics

  8. Recent trends in business, economics, law and public administration

  9. Contemporary approaches in quality assurance, management and marketing

  10. Achievements in humanities and social sciences

  11. Education research, sustainable development and interdisciplinary studies

We invite original paper submissions that describe novel ideas and technologies, applications, experiments and empirical studies, or design techniques within topics of the conference. Full papers should make substantial, novel and relevant contributions to the field.


The benefits of attending are considerable for established academics and new scientists alike. Apart from the academic benefits, one should also consider the consistent social and cultural program that is always associated with UNIVERSITARIA SIMPRO events. Attractive destinations and quality venues ensure an enjoyable stay to all participants. The multinational composition of the attendees often stimulates the initiation of fruitful conversations. The overall experience is always fulfilling. Although this web site is designed to answer any questions you might have regarding the event, feel free to contact us if you have any inquiries.

Reviewing process: High content quality is of utmost importance. Each paper will be reviewed by one reviewer. The review and selection process that scientific committee/editors will conduct for the submissions and papers is single blind review process. Symposium organizers/editors agree to uphold the publishing ethics standards. Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement is based, in large part, on existing Elsevier policies and COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.

Publication ethics: The prevention of publication malpractice is the responsibility of every author, editor, reviewer, publisher and institution. The relevant duties and expectations of editors, reviewers and authors of the proceedings are set out in the PUBLICATION ETHICS section.
