VENUE

The 13th REHVA HVAC world Congress, CLIMA 2019, will be held in Romania, over the dates of May 26 to 29, 2019. The venue will be its capital Bucharest which is the 6th European town in population terms and the largest city of Romania. It is a beautiful and very alive Romanian cultural, industrial and financial center, offering historical or modern conference venues, very cosy hotels, appealing restaurants, robust infrastructure and a lot of quite unique places like traditional museums, recreational green areas and genuine "shopping arcades". Bucharest is known as the most prosperous city in Romania (the living level is over the EU average) and it is one of the main transportation hubs of Eastern Europe. So there will be no concern about your arrival at the congress location. We are convinced that all CLIMA participants will be charmed by Bucharest urban diversity and kindness of its inhabitants.

 

The location of the Congress itself will be the National Library of Romania, located on the shores of Dambovita River at No. 22 Unirii Boulevard (click here for map).

 

The most important chapter in the biography of the National Library of Romania can be considered to be the year 1955 when the Central State Library was founded (by D.G. No. 1193/25.06.1955). This library was to be the country's main public library, an institution created on modern library basis, complying with the specific duties of a national library according to UNESCO standards. According to most historians and researchers, the National Library of Romania finds its origins in one of the oldest and most representative libraries from Romania-the Saint Sava Highschool Library in Bucharest. This library opened its’ collections to the general public in 1838, when aproximatively 1000 French volumes were catalogued. After the Union from 1859, it achieves the status of a national library, alternatively being referred to as the national library and The Central Library. In 1864, by public Regulations Law, it is named the Central Library of the State, name and status kept until 1901, when it is disbanded and its collections are transferred to the Romanian Academy Library that receives the status of national library. During this period, only a single national function can be considered relevant for the library, namely, the heritage function. In 1955 the book fund is asigned to the new founded Central State Library, the main public library in Romania.

 

The new palace of the National Library of Romania (NLR) was open in April 2012 in a modern building started few years before 1989. Located 5-10 minutes by walking from the old city of Bucharest and its center, NLR has view over the Parliament Palace and over Dambovita river. It is a very modern place for study or for congresses, offering a useful area over 78000 sqm, gathering 16 large reading rooms, 6 conference halls, multipurpose areas (exhibition halls, auditoria, projections, bookshops, cafes), book depositories, offices, meeting rooms and technical areasThe coffee in the drinks machines is the cheapest in the city, and actually better than in many coffee bars !

TRAVEL

The visitor platform of Bucharest is serviced by two airports: Henri Coanda International Airport (Otopeni) and Aurel Vlaicu Airport (Baneasa). Depending on what kind of flight visitors opt for (charter, low-cost or business class), they can land at either of these airports, since the airport transfer services are just as reliable. Otopeni and Baneasa are administrated by the same company, CNAB (Compania Nationala de Aeroporturi Bucuresti, meaning the National Company of Airports of Bucharest).

IMPORTANT ! DO I NEED A ROMANIAN VISA ?

Citizens from the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) who wish to visit Romania can enter using any border checkpoint, if they can produce a valid identity document – passport or any other such document recognized by the Romanian state. EU/EEA citizens can enter the Romanian territory and stay, according to the right to freedom of movement and residence granted under Romanian law, in agreement with European regulations.

 

Citizens from certain states that are not EU/EEA Member States require an entry visa (https://www.mae.ro/en/node/2040). The Romanian visa is issued by Romanian diplomatic missions and consular offices.

Definition and Context 
Respecting intellectual property rights is a foundational principle of the Clima Codes of Ethics. Plagiarism, in which one misrepresents ideas, words, computer codes or other creative expression as one's own, is a clear violation of such ethical principles. Plagiarism can also represent a violation of copyright law, punishable by statute. Plagiarism manifests itself in a variety of forms, including verbatim copying, near-verbatim copying, or purposely paraphrasing portions of another author's paper;copying elements of another author's paper, such as equations or illustrations that are not common knowledge, or copying or purposely paraphrasing sentences without citing the source; and verbatim copying of portions of another author's paper with citing but not clearly differentiating what text has been copied (e.g., not applying quotation marks correctly) and/or not citing the source correctly. Self-plagiarism is a related issue. We define self-plagiarism as the verbatim or near-verbatim reuse of significant portions of one's own copyrighted work without citing the original source. Note that self-plagiarism does not apply to publications based on the author's own previously copyrighted work (e.g., appearing in a conference proceedings) where an explicit reference is made to the prior publication. Such reuse does not require quotation marks to delineate the reused text but does require that the source be cited.

All authors are deemed to be individually and collectively responsible for the content of papers published. Hence, it is the responsibility of each author to ensure that papers submitted attain the highest ethical standards with respect to plagiarism. Clima Congress Board place the investigation of each claim of plagiarism at the highest priority for resolution and action.

 

Notifying Clima of Alleged Plagiarism 
To inform us of alleged plagiarism, please use the contact email info@clima2019.org. The following is the minimum information required for Clima to initiate a plagiarism investigation: The names and contacts of the person(s) making the claim and their relationship to the allegation (e.g., author of plagiarized work, reviewer or editor of plagiarizing work). A citation to the original paper(s) (paper title, author, publication title, date of publication). A citation to the alleged plagiarizing paper. Indication of specific pages, sections, paragraphs in each work alleged as evidence of the plagiarism. In addition, Clima encourages the submission of the following additional information to aid in its investigation: Copies of all papers involved in the alleged plagiarism. Additional information regarding how to obtain involved papers that are unpublished (e.g., a technical report, an online posting).Any other information that would help to efficiently resolve the claim. Clima can only process plagiarism claims involving material published under Clima Copyright Agreement License.

 

Investigation 
Upon receipt of an allegation of plagiarism, Clima representatives will coordinate the investigation. Depending on the details of the claim, the investigation may include, but not be limited to, any or all of the following steps:

  • Manual and/or automated tests of content similarity.
  • Forming an ad hoc committee of experts in the field to review the claim.
  • Consulting with Clima legal counsel; and/or.
  • Communicating with the individuals involved on both sides.

Once the investigation has been completed, the Clima Congress Board will determine the penalties to be imposed depending on the type of plagiarism.

 

Confidentiality 
All aspects of an investigation will be treated with the utmost regard for confidentiality. The names and contacts of the person(s) making the claim and their relationship to the allegation (e.g., author of plagiarized work, reviewer or editor of plagiarizing work) will be kept confidential and used only for the purpose and duration of the investigation. However, in order to ensure timely and effective resolution, details of a claim will be circulated to individuals on a need-to-know basis. As part of the investigation, it may be necessary for Clima to contact current and/or past employers of the authors. Additionally, some institutions have specific requirements for their employees to disclose any pending legal/ethical matters.

During the investigation, under no circumstances will Clima disclose any individual author's name, paper titles, referees, ad hoc investigation committee members, or any other personal or specific information regarding a plagiarism claim to the public.

 

Results of an Investigation 
Once a decision has been reached, it will be communicated to all parties immediately by Clima. If plagiarism has been found, all parties will be informed of the penalties and the actions that will be taken. Upon notification, the investigative phase will be deemed to have ended, and there will be no further communication with any party by Clima unless there is an appeal made to the Clima Congress Board. All appeals must be made in writing no more than 30 days from the date of notification.
