The paper highlights the various aspects of the electronisation of judicial and extra-judicial dispute resolution in the Slovak Republic. The author concludes that arbitration as a form of dispute settlement process may take an electronic form in Slovakia, with the exception of issuing the arbitration decisions which must always take a paper form – for the sake of legal certainty. An alternative dispute resolution in consumer disputes, taking the form of mediation is a novelty in Slovakia and was only introduced in 2016, under the respective EU Regulation. This also foresaw an electronic platform to facilitate online cross-border consumer dispute resolution. Finally, the recently introduced new rules on civil judicial procedure in Slovakia (1st July 2016) also brought about some enhancements with regard to electronisation of dispute resolution. In addition to the possibilities of filing electronic submissions, hearings can also take place with the use of electronic means; public notices must be published on a website of a court or relevant authority and the delivery of court documents was also widely electronised based on a recent Act on e-Government.
A detailed petrographic and mineral-chemical study on metapelites from the Meliatic accretionary wedge complex (Bôrka Nappe, Western Carpathians, Slovak Republic) reveals the HP character of the samples using quantitative phase diagrams contoured with mineral composition, H2O mode isopleths and garnet-phengite thermometry. The presented PT pseudosections prove that small-scale differences in bulk rock composition are responsible for the variations in the mineral assemblages formed at the same PT conditions. The peak conditions indicate blueschist facies metamorphism (520–620 °C, 11–14 kbar) and are correlated with the 150–165 Ma subduction of the Mesozoic Meliata Oceanic branch of the Neotethys. Continuous decrease of P and T from peak conditions enabled the metapelitic rocks to preserve their HP assemblages. The presented HP conditions and retrograde PT path with decreasing P and T are characteristic of subduction zone tectonic settings which are in agreement with most of the geodynamic and tectonic reconstructions for the area.

The results of radiocesium activity of some foodstuffs imported to the Slovak Republic in the period from January 1988 to July 1995 are presented. The analysed samples were homogenized, packed into 0.451 Marinelli beakers and then measured by direct semiconductor, -spectrometry for 10 000–50 000 seconds. The levels of137Cs in various foodstuffs varied quite widely from Minimum Detectable Activity (MDA)=0.4 to 80.2 Bq/kg. Concentrations of137Cs in fish and fish products were in general higher than those in beef and pork.

Assessments of sewer systems are key tools in verification of sewer hydraulic capacity. Rain sewers and combined sewers are most susceptible regarding system overload and so while assessing them; proper choice of design rainfall is inevitable. The calculation of design rainfall is time-consuming and inefficient and that was the reason that leads to development of design rainfall analysis tool in order to minimize the length of the calculation process of design rainfall. The tool incorporates calculation of design rainfall depending on the specified area of interest within Slovakia and chosen periodicity, allows block rain, reduced block rain and synthetic rain to be calculated with the possibility of their mutual comparison, and also serves to generate background data for further use in form of portable document format and excel files.
