After each series of the presentations the audience and the participants had a possibility to discuss them. The topic sections were moderated by the lecturers from the Institute of Art History. Fifteen-minute presentations referred to history of art in its classical sense, treated as a chronicle of separate historic-artistic phenomena, history of architecture and building or painters, sculptors and architects’ oeuvre.

There were also papers on art theory and related to it phenomena. Another numerous group of doctoral students introduced papers on contemporary art and current events in art and culture.
