The PhD workshop in Budapest welcomes PhD students at any stage of their PhD, as well as students who just completed their PhD at the time of the workshop. Both scientific program and themes will be defined in more details in the next months by the Scientific Committee. The workshop accepts two different types of submissions. In the “finished papers” submission, students present the papers that have been selected for this format (20 minutes for each presentation), and the discussion will be opened by a discussant (10 minutes for each paper) - papers will be distributed in advance. This a ”classic type” of full paper submission considered by most conferences. In the “paper proposals” submissions, the time allocated for each presentation and discussion is 15 minutes. These types of submissions include a broad idea and basic research concept, presented in 5 minutes, followed by a 10 minutes discussion.

Q Open makes progress
Open access journal Q Open is making progress:
• We have been informed by Scopus that they have accepted Q Open for indexing. This is an important first step in being included in the major indexes and achieving an impact factor.
• We have a new manuscript transfer arrangement with the ERAE. Manuscripts submitted to the ERAE, but considered a better fit with the objectives of Q Open can now transferred directly for consideration for publication.
• Q Open is also well on track to reach key-performance indicators on growth in the number of manuscripts and in the turn-around time for review.
Finally, we need further support from you.
Q Open invites EAAE members who have written a paper for the EAAE congress in Rennes to submit the paper to the journal. We hope to publish many of the papers before the end of the year. See our website for submission details: https://academic.oup.com/qopen
