The objectives of the International scientific conference "TOURISM IN FUNCTION OF DEVELOPMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA - Тourism in the Era of Digital Transformation, which will be held from the 31st May to the 2nd June 2018 in Vrnjačka Banja, organized by the Faculty of Hotel Management and Tourism in Vrnjačka Banja, University of Kragujevac, refer to the consideration of various tourism-related aspects and impact of tourism, as one of the world-leading industries, to the development of the countries. The basic idea is to systematize the effects of tourism on the economic, political, demographic, social development by one multidisciplinary approach.

Due to the fact that the World Tourism Day 2018 will be marked under the title "Tourism and Digital Transformation" which is approved by the UNWTO, that the development of information society and communication technologies has led to the substantial changes in the way tourist activities are performed, that tourism service users are increasingly obtaining respective services online through a computer or organize their trip "on the go" by means of portable devices (smart phones, tablets), that the competitiveness of tourism service providers greatly depends on the use of modern technologies, through which travelers are given the opportunity to choose services in accordance with their habits and lifestyles (so-called personalized services), that digitization is one of the key factors for the development of a tourist sector as a whole, the specific objective of the 3rd International Scientific Conference is to consider the impact of modern technologies on tourism through a multidisciplinary approach, as well as to look at the prospects for the development of tourism in Serbia and other countries in the era of digital transformation.

In achieving aforementioned Conference objectives, we highly encourage contributions of tourismologists, economists, managers, lawyers, urban planners, sociologists, demographers, geographers, other eminent scientists from universities, institutes, colleges, including representatives of tourism organizations and local self-governments from Serbia and other countries. Organizer’s intention is to open debate on the role tourism plays in the economy of different countries, factors which influence tourism development, measures that need to be taken to adapt to those developments, challenges tourism industry is facing in the digital era, balance that needs to be made between the rights and obligations of the users and providers of tourism services in order to ensure competitiveness of business, etc. It is expected that discussion not only gives answer to many current questions, but also to encourage new ones, in order to improve the tourism-related theory and practice.
