The 1st International Scientific and Practical Conference on Digital Economy (ISCDE 2019 - http://iscde2019.com/en/) was held on November 7-8, 2019, Chelyabinsk, Russia.

Over 120 participants have joined the discussion. About 45 participants have submitted and presented their paper.

ISCDE 2019 is a good opportunity to share experiences, modern knowledge and the achievements in the field of digital economy. The conference is designed to maintain a high scientific level of discussion about the digital economy and management trends, methods of its study and development, involving in this process qualified experts, representatives of science, business and government. The purpose of the conference is to discuss and predict future trends in the digital economy, exchange advanced knowledge in the field of digital management.
ISCDE 2019 received 472 manuscripts. And 187 applications were accepted by our reviewers. By submitting a paper to ISCDE 2019, 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 got accepted, the authors submitted a revised version that considered 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 2019 for their hard work. Without their participation, it would be impossible to hold ISCDE 2019 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.
