  1. Dear Mladiinfo,

    Could you clarify , plz, what a publication sample in the application package should be like? How long, should it necessarily be an already published work?

    Thanks a lot.


    1. Natalya,

      I must admit, I don’t understand it either as there is no further specification, but assuming from this formulation: “Applicants may be asked to provide short presentations at the conference, or act as a discussant in panels.”, they may want to see what you are going to present about. However, this is only my assumption, so I encourage you to write directly to:

      I hope they will tell you more.


      Kristina, mladiinfo
