This collection has an international scientific committee and an editorial committee, in addition to an adviser.

Every year, this collection makes an open call to the academic community in general and not only to the members of CIDEHUS for publication purposes.

This is the 2018 call. The works, however, will almost assuredly only be published in 2019.
