The FMSCICOM 2022 conference served primarily as a lively forum for providing feedback to PhD students. They presented the outputs of their research and scientific approaches not only in front of the expert committee, but especially in front of all visitors. All of them can give the students their insights and valuable comments. The members of the committee this year were Lenka Komárková, Agnieszka Bem from Wroclaw University of Economics and Business in Poland, Mojmír Sabolovič and Tomáš Kincl.

Every year, the conference also includes an evaluation of the papers and presentations of individual PhD students who participate in the conference. This year, all presenting students were evaluated comprehensively and the traditional choice of the three best ones was changed. The awards this year went to Petr Šimáček for the potential of his research, Lucie Klattová for the scientific merit and Zdena Hrušková for the overall highest level of oral presentation.

The conference ended with an informal social evening during which the students had the opportunity to network with all the guests and discuss their research issues.
