organized on the occasion of the 40th anniversary
of the Faculty of Economics of Matej Bel University in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia,
under the aegis of Assoc. Prof. Ing. Vladimír Hiadlovský, PhD., the rector of the University
3 October 2017 – 4 October 2017
The conference ECONOMIC THEORY AND PRACTICE 2017 [ETAP 2017] is devoted to contemporary theoretical and practical issues of economics. The ambition of the conference is to gather representatives of academic community and economic practice in order to achieve a synergy. On one hand, the conference is intended to provide a mechanism of mutual dissemination of scientific knowledge among those for whom it may be beneficial in their decisions and everyday business; and on the other hand, it gives a special opportunity for those whose professional life is tied with economics to discuss the problems they face. The conference is designated to cover major fields of economics and might be attractive to scholars, researchers, corporate and government executives, managers, graduates or any professionals who have graduated from a study program in economics. The conference is divided into following sections:
- Business economics and management,
- Economic theory,
- Finance and banking,
- Public economics,
- Regional development and public administration,
The international scientific conference ECONOMIC THEORY AND PRACTICE 2017 [ETAP 2017] is organized by the Faculty of Economics of Matej Bel University in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia. The name of the conference is chosen very carefully because it immediately represents orientation on contemporary theoretical and practical issues of economics.
The conference will take place at the Faculty of Economics of Matej Bel University in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia, and will be held during two days between 3 Oct 2017 and 4 Oct 2017. The first conference day will be closely associated with celebration events of the 40th anniversary of the Faculty of Economics and the conference lectures and dealings in parallel sessions will be organized throughout the second conference day.
Papers presented at the conference may be later submitted for publication in the conference proceedings. Each paper must be first presented at the conference and its presentation is the initial proviso for being considered for the conference proceedings as it is expected that conference discussions during their presentation will stimulate new insights and may provide a number of recommendations to improve the quality of the paper. After a paper has been submitted, it will be first reviewed internally by the Scientific Committee and only then will be admitted for a blind peer review process. Only the papers that have passed the review process successfully and its academic impact is warranted will be included in the conference proceedings.
It is the ambition of the Scientific Committee to apply for inclusion of the conference proceedings into the Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI), a part of the Web of Science™ Core Collection database, maintained by Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters).

The acid test for suitability of a paper presented at the conference and submitted later for the conference proceedings is that it must be thematically related to current issues of economic theory or economic practice. Each paper should primarily fall into one of the following topics:
- Business management and marketing,
- Competitiveness and economic growth,
- Creative and smart development of places,
- Current challenges to Macroeconomics
- Current challenges to Microeconomics
- Effectiveness and innovations in public services,
- Finance, banking and investment,
- Financial issues of territorial units,
- Innovations as a factor of sustainable business development,
- Interdisciplinarity in economics,
- New challenges of regional development and public administration in the 21th century,
- Pension and public finance,
- Public economics and public policy,
- Small and medium entrepreneurship,
- Standardization and regulatory policies,
- Sustainable and competitive tourism development,
- Tourism destination management and governance,
- Volunteer tourism.
The conference is open anyone who is interested and will welcome also participants without active presentations. However, without active presentation a paper cannot be submitted for the conference proceedings.
