The idea of a student symposium was born in 2008 at a conference held in Celje, Slovenia. Young and committed lecturers thought about creating a joint event for students from different countries and faculties, who would gather in a relaxed atmosphere, present their papers, and exchange ideas and experiences.
The symposium offers young students from different nationalities and cultural backgrounds to gain first-hand experiences in presenting and discussing their projects’ results in front of an international audience. Besides the students’ presentations, there are lectures from professors of the partner universities and excursions to companies to get a deeper insight into the actual topics. There is also time for cultural sightseeing.
The symposium thus became a distinguished event that the Faculty of Logistics of the University of Maribor organizes every year in cooperation with foreign institutions, which means that the symposium moves to a different city every year.
