•    Fully physical sessions will not be accessible for the online participants.
•    Physical participants can participate in the virtual sessions using their own equipment (laptop, tablet or similar). While in the conference venue, they are requested to use headphones or earphones in order not to disturb conference participants in their proximity.
•    Plenary opening and closing sessions will be organized in the physical format, but live-streamed and accessible to online participants.

•    Preliminary conference programme is expected to be available on the conference website 2 weeks prior the conference. The final conference programme will be published by October 18, 2021.

the NISPAcee Journal has likewise had its crucial role to play already, when it comes to the conceptualisation of public-administration reforms in Central and Eastern Europe. And that role could become yet more significant in the future, as I feel it would be useful to work further on a conceptualisation of a public-administration model for the Central and Eastern European countries
