II International Scientific and Practical Conference on Digital Economy (ISCDE 2020) was held in Yekaterinburg, Russia on November 5-6, 2020. This conference was organized by Almaty University of Power Engineering and Telecommunications named after G. Daukeev (Almaty, Kazakhstan) and Institute of Digital Economics (Yekaterinburg) and was held in the Vysotskiy business center on the 50th floor. Over 120 participants have joined the discussion. About 49 participants have submitted and presented their paper. It was attended by civil servants, academicians of the Russian Academy of Sciences, researchers, entrepreneurs, government agencies and politicians, scientists and graduate students.
ISCDE 2020 is a good opportunity for the exchange of experience, modern knowledge and achievements in the study of the consequences of the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. The conference is designed to maintain a high scientific level of scientific discussion on the digital economy and management trends, methods for their study and development, involving qualified experts in this process - representatives of science, business and government.
ISCDE 2020 received 301 manuscripts. And 119 applications were accepted by our reviewers. By submitting a paper to ISCDE 2020, the authors agreed to the review process and understand that papers undergo a peer-review process.
Manuscripts would be reviewed by appropriately qualified experts in the field selected by the Conference Committee, who would give detailed comments and-if the submission gets accepted-the authors submitted a revised version that considers this feedback. All papers were reviewed using a double-blind review process: authors declare their names and affiliations in the manuscript for the reviewers to see, but reviewers did not know each other's identities, nor did the authors receive information about who has reviewed their manuscript. The Committees invested great efforts in reviewing the papers submitted to the conference and organizing the sessions to enable the participants to gain maximum benefit.
We would like to express our high appreciation to the organizers, members of the program committees and reviewers of ISCDE 2020 for their hard work. Without their participation, it would be impossible to hold ISCDE 2020 successfully and ensure high quality of papers of the conference proceedings. We also would like to express our gratitude to the unbelievable number of authors for contributing their research results to the Conference.
Special thanks go to Atlantis Press. We also hope to meet again in the upcoming conferences.
