I saw that this tourney is member of newly introduced "World Solving Cup" (WSC)
Since deadline for application is the 1st September it will be nice if someone explains what is the format of newly established WSC. It would be nice to know rules in advance. Here are some questions that I have:
1) I am assuming that there is some system of points earning during the various competitions
2) How the solving tournament earns the qualification that it's member of "World Solving Cup"
3) What is the time period for WSC (from ... to ...)
I also think that there should be rule that WSC tourneys should be announced at least two to three months in advance. Solvers should have time to plan their trips and book airplane tickets if needed and also to plan vacation. Otherwise if someone publish tourney with a short notice it'll favor solvers who lives close to the place of the competition.
I am assuming that the idea of WSC is to mimic World Cups in other sports and to make solving competitions more interesting.
Generally I think that this is a good idea but it will be nice that it's a transparent competition (knowing rules in advance). I think that one of the must have rule is that results of any tourney that is member of WSC should be published within 24 hours after tourney ended. Waiting for results weeks or months will ruin the idea of WSC.
I am assuming that Marko Klasinc is best person to give rules since he is WSC director.
Also I think that it would be beneficiary to have site dedicated to WSC (like we used to have solving chess site with solving results in the past).

First of all, it would be interesting to know which events belong to this world cup series? And when are they taking place?

Soon all the information the new system will appear on the WFCC website. Miodrag correctly says we need to have 2 months before the start, but for this tournament unofficial information was in my site already August 10, other suitable date was not, as of October 17 will be a tournament in Bern, and later in Montenegro the weather does not allow swimming in the sea in their spare time.
