The multidisciplinary Collaborative European Research Conference (CERC) is an annual event that takes place since 2011 when it was initiated by University partners across Europe. It brings together researchers from a wide range of disciplines in order to foster knowledge transfer, inter-disciplinary exchange and collaboration.

We invite researchers to submit short or full papers to attend the conference. We especially welcome early stage researchers to present new research topics.

In previous years, contributions came from computer science, biology, bioinformatics, business information systems, marketing, IT-security, civil engineering, education, psychology, multimedia, art, etc. Contributing students came from Ireland, Germany, United Kingdom, Norway, France, USA, etc. Accepted contributions will be published in digital proceedings with an ISSN number.

 

This year, we will invite IEEE Distinguish Lecturers to deliver Keynotes. Seven tracks have been confirmed to run in the conference, see Call for Papers.

An European research networking session will be held during the conference.
