PRACTICAL INFORMATION


ACCOMMODATION
As capital of one of the member states of the European Union, Bucharest has an increasingly large and varied offer of accommodation, with rooms in mid-range hotels at 40-60 Euro/night and even some 4-star hotels under 100 euro/night. Hostels and dormitory accommodation is also possible, usually at less than 20 Euro/night.

TRAVEL
Bucharest is well connected to all major European business and holiday destinations through the Otopeni "Henri Coandă" international airport located at 20 km from the city centre, and it has a growing network of local transport facilities, including metro, night buses and tourist open double-decker sightseeing buses. Taxis are also widely available, including through smartphone applications in foreign languages (read more).


NETWORKING
Beyond the academic exchanges within the working sessions, we value, encourage and support the interaction of participants in less formal contexts such as the various coffee breaks and the welcome dinner, as it can strengthen the existent individual and institutional collaborations, it may help build new projects, and most importantly it can forge lifetime friendships.

BRAINSTORMING & PROJECT DRAFTING
If, beyond participating to the usual working sessions, you wish to take advantage of the opportunities presented by a large international conference such as SCOPE to draft or advance a collaborative project with other scholars and you need a room for this, please contact us at scope@fspub.unibuc.ro and we will try to accommodate your needs.

PUBLICATION OPPORTUNITIES
The best papers may be considered for publication with our publishing partners in collective volumes or special journal issues. Various international and local publishers will be also invited with booths at the event.

WiFi
Romania has some of the fastest internet connections in the world and WiFi is widely available (and most frequently free) in hotels, pubs, bars, terraces and many public spaces. During the conference, all participants will be able to use freely the 
WiFi networks of the University of Bucharest.

TECHNICAL INFRASTRUCTURE
The conference rooms where participants need to have digital presentations will have video projectors. Plugs are available for recharging batteries (220V, European/continental socket) in all conference rooms.

LANGUAGE & COMMUNICATION
The abstracts, the papers and the presentations should be primarily in the official language of the conference - English. Pre-organized panels or round tables in French can be also accepted. Papers can be submitted in French as well, but, for practical reasons, if the rest of the papers in the subject-matching panel are in English we kindly ask to prepare the presentation in English.
