The Sopot Science Association (SSA) welcomes contributions to the sixth edition of the International Sopot Youth Conference entitled Where the World is Heading. The conference is the continuation of the Sopot Youth Forum. Since 2008 over 500 scientists from many countries have presented their work during the event.




Online submissions is open from 8 April to 6 May 2022.

Register here: https://2022isyc.konfeo.com/


We invite young scientists or science enthusiasts, university students, Ph.D. students and young doctors to present their work, visions, opinions, and thoughts.

The Sopot Youth Conference consists of two thematic blocks: humanities and social sciences and the second one – natural and physical sciences. Both oral (15 minutes) and poster presentations are welcome.


Due to the uncertain COVID-19 situation worldwide, also the 2022 edition of the conference is planned to be held in an entirely online mode. 

This year, we are seeking presentations for special, interdisciplinary sessions dedicated to women and girls in science and the session organized by the GeoPlanet community. More information below!


Due to the multidisciplinary character of the Sopot Youth Conference abstracts and presentations should be prepared in an intelligible manner. The Conference language is English.

Our Conference Proceedings are registered, and have an ISBN, and thus can be cited.


Just like in previous editions this year the best presentations will be granted FINANCIAL AWARDS.

Women and girls in science panel discussion



The GeoPlanet session

Fact or Fake?

Do you have problems with some myths and fake information in your field of expertise? Do you have to challenge them in discussions? Please share such information with us. Tell us what do you mean by fact versus fake info. Tell us how/if you challenge these situations. Do you have any special methods for convincing people about science-based knowledge?

We welcome submissions from any scientific field aiming to tackle “scientific” myths and hence make a change in the perception of science in society.
