We would like to invite young scientists to participate in the XI Copernican International Young Scientists Conference (Formerly, Kopernikańskie Seminarium Doktoranckie - KSD).

CYISCon is offering young scientists opportunity to present the results of their research and find scientific connection among young scholars from international community.
