Criteria and Procedure

The decision depends on objective scientific and technical criteria. Once your application is accepted, the ACE certificate and permission for the logo usage will be sent to your organization. Furthermore, your academic event will be added on our events list and would be made available to thousands of researchers worldwide. However, your academic event on our website certainly means an increase in your event`s visibility.
