12th Annual Days of BHAAAS in B&H

Mostar, June 25th – June 28th, 2020

Gymnasium Mostar

The procedure for submission of abstracts/papers is different for medical versus technical symposia. All abstracts (medical symposia and social sciences and humanities symposium) and papers must be written in English.

The presentations can be delivered in either English or in Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian regardless of the symposium, although we encourage presentations in English so that the attendees from other countries can follow them. All abstract/papers submitters must register for the conference.

We strongly encourage interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary presentations. We also encourage submissions from young researchers and professionals, and especially from women.
