This is the 10th event of the International Conference on Management (ICoM) conference series which was started in 2011 with the idea to bring together scientists, researchers, PhD students and the representatives of the business sector to exchange and share their experiences and research results about contemporary management and social issues.

Nowadays, sustainability is a key question of our life, all over the world. Sustainability is related to the natural environment, economy and society. In the recent years, sustainable economy, sustainable society and sustainable development became one of the key management objectives and the subject of multidisciplinary scientific researches. That´s why the topic of the last year´s conference was focused on people, profit, planet concept. However, other topics will be also welcome. This year we would like to open the question of zero waste concept as a part of circular economy. The whole conference will be organized as a zero waste event. Due to the persistent situation with the COVID pandemic, the entire conference will take place in an online environment.

The aim of the conference is to provide opportunity for scientists and professionals from various areas of knowledge and disciplines to meet each other, to share their experiences, research results and theoretical studies and to build and strengthen international cooperation for improving the quality of scientific research. An additional goal of the conference is build a bridge between experienced researchers with the young researchers and PhD students to start new relationships and research networks to work together the next generations.
