The reports will be delivered by invited prominent Bulgarian scientists and teachers. The reports will pass a preliminary scrutiny and admittance by the Organizing Committee. The posters should differ in form from the reports for oral presentation. They have to be in line with the topic of the Conference, to contain less text and more illustrations.
