5th International Scientific Conference
Abstract: The Proceedings of 5th International Scientific Conference organized by University of Maribor, Faculty of Economics and Business entitled »Is It Time for a Total Reset?« comprises four sections. Economics is covered by convergence trends in human development indicators in EU, characteristics of savings in North Macedonia, response of households to Covid-19 epidemic and its effect on food and beverages industry. The second part is devoted to management and it presents a case study of market entry of emerging small enterprises, circular economy in case of secondary use of raw materials in Poland, a simplification of administrative procedures in Italy, and most common approaches to motivating employees in public administration. The digitalization section includes general presentations of digitalization and its challenges in marketing and education. The fourth part displays effects of Covid-19 epidemic to legal order, to teaching business English and to EU strategy for growth, competitiveness and sustainable development.
Keywords: economics, management, digitalization, education, law

32nd Bled eConference Humanizing Technology for a Sustainable Society
2019, proceedings of peer-reviewed scientific conference contributions (international and foreign conferences)
Abstract: Bled eConference, organized by University of Maribor, Faculty of Organizational Sciences, has been shaping electronic interactions since 1988. Bled eConference is the oldest, most traditional and well renowned conference in the field with more than 30 years of tradition. The theme of this year’s 32nd conference is dedicated to “Humanizing Technology for a Sustainable Society”. In 2018, European Commission emphasized that in the future, competitiveness will be dependent on the ability to move towards sustainability, resource-efficiency and the ability to exploit the advantages of digital technologies. In the context of digital society, implementation of digital technologies to achieve higher efficiency and competitive advantage is insufficient. Society calls for different economy models; more responsible, righteous and less exploitative. In this year’s conference, we address various aspects of these challenges and provide directions and guidelines for organizations to meet and overcome these challenges on their way towards successful digital transformation. Themes covered in the papers of these proceedings are focused on: digital transformation; business model innovation; blockchain and social media; big data, data science, and decision support systems; e-health, digital wellness and wellbeing; new applications and organizational models; and novel approaches and cases in education in digital economy.
Keywords: digital transformation, digital technology, innovation, digitalization, sustainability

Maritime issues in digital ageSanja Bauk
, 2018, scientific monograph
Abstract: This book is a collection of research studies in the cross-section of maritime studies, information and communication technologies, and operations research. It contains a “layer” of topics that are more technical, and a “layer” of topics that are more managerial and business oriented. The fields of research are related to the author’s quite diverse interests in certain periods of time, and her success in applying for some research grants.
The manuscript can serve as valuable material for educational and research purposes. This is especially important if we keep in mind that digitalization in maritime sector lags behind other business and industry sectors.
Keywords: process digitalization, maritime transport, operational research, ports, information communication technology

, 2005, original scientific article
Abstract: Due to the appearance of numerically controlled machine tools the conventional copying from physical model has almost lost its importance. Instead, the model of numerical copying is widely used. Until recently, geometry could be copied predominantly in the touching manner and the manufacture of copied - measured shapes on CNC machine tools mainly did not pose o problem. However, because of the introduction of optical copying of geometrical data it is possible to copy the shapes which, sometimes, cannot be made by conventional machining processes (small radii of curvature, negative angles, etc.). The paper describes how these problems can be solved with layered technology processes within a very short time.

Holistic strategy of public action and visual digitalization in convergent environmentMario Plenković

, 2010, original scientific article
Abstract: Basic operative terms of visual phenomenology are analyzed to develop a holistic strategy for public action within the new culture of communicating inthe global context. New arenas of visual communication are observed as a sociocultural process of adjusting visual technology. Creating a new strategy for public action will enhance daily life and understanding between all citizens, about questions concerning human development and society in general.A theoretical discussion is conducted through diachronic and synchronic analysis of visual communication content. The main goal is to establish a new communicative paradigm for a holistic strategy of public action. Observing visual digitalization, the authors develop a holistic strategy for public action, not only in the technical sense of the transmission and adjustment of analog signal into digital signal. The future of visual communication is a powerful source for creating images, the transmission of pictures via images, and the description or manipulation of reputation, dominance, subjection, and media exhaustion within the convergent environment. The authors identify technical and sociocultural questions regarding visual communication from the perspective of the usage of new information and communication technologies (ICT). The holistic public action strategy seeks to preserve cultural identity within the context of global communication.
