Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 29th Annual Conference of Doctoral Students was postponed and was held in Prague, at Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics from September 22 to September 24, 2020 as a virtual meeting. The traditional WDS Proceedings in your hands that is limited to physical studies is compiled from 20 student manuscripts finally accepted for publication in this hard year.

All submitted manuscripts were reviewed by two referees because we believe that it helps students to learn how to prepare the written presentation of their results in a foreign language and how to respond the referee's notices. They should take into account their comments and prepare a new submission including letters to referees where they explain their reaction. This is a standard publication procedure in scientific journals and we are offering an exercise that would be useful for students in future. Moreover, one of referees is a doctoral student, thus he/she can practise in the preparation of a review. Moreover, the subject of the paper under review is often slightly different from his/her field of research, so the student’s referees should investigate a new problem and another style of writing. They can see that a good and comprehensive review is sometimes a very difficult task. Therefore, a level of student's reports is often different — from a formal review only to precise reports with a number of comments and suggestions.

The second referee is selected from the experienced senior researchers and, in this year, their list includes over 40 % of foreign experts, because they feel the importance of such a method of teaching. We would like to express many thanks to all 50 referees for the understanding and great help. Their effort significantly contributed to a traditionally good quality of the Proceedings and you can find over 750 citations to articles in previous volumes in Web of Science and this number increases every year.

Editors thank to following referees: P. Barton, B. Bergmann, B. Bezdekova, M. Cada, T. Dohnal, M. Dovciak, V. Gabriel, S. Gerasimov, S. K. Hansen, M. Hejduk, K. Iłkiewicz, T. Jerabkova, P. Kacovsky, A. Khirnov, K. G. Klein, I. Kolmasova, O. Kopacek, L. Kripner, D. Kubaniova, A. Kuzminova, M. La Mantia, L. Leedjarv, H. Libenska, O. Lubynets, M. Milgrom, S. S. Mujumdar, F. Nemec, D. Nikitin, O. Parlag, G. Pi, P. Pleskunov, V. D. Pustovitov, S. Rednyk, P. Rubovic, M. Ryston, A. Salohub, K. Soustruznik, F. M. Teyssier, M. Tomes, D. Tsiklauri, K. Tuharin, G. Urbancova, J. Urbar, M. Vaidulych, E. Varga, R. Vladoiu, K. Vokurka, M. Wolf, Z. Yan, M. Zanaska, and M. Zofka.

Finally, we would like to express our thanks to all speakers and other participants for helping us to keep a fruitful and friendly atmosphere during the whole meeting as the photo from open-air joint poster session demonstrates. Last but not least, we would like to thank our colleagues and many cooperative students who assisted us greatly both prior to and through the conference.

Pleasant reading
