Paper Submission Guideline

Extended Abstract, competitive paper, poster presentation, word limit

We are inviting original extended abstracts written in English. The abstracts will be selected through a double-blind review process: reviews by members of the Scientific Committee and by ad hoc reviewers. The authors will be notified about the outcome of the review with instructions for conference fee payment. Some manuscripts may need to be revised for final acceptance.

Authors may choose to submit extended abstracts of either competitive papers or work in progress for oral presentation or poster presentation. After acceptance of extended abstracts, authors will have two options.

  1. Submit an abstract for publication in conference proceedings
  2. Submit a full paper for conference award and publication opportunities at the North South Business Review

For poster presentation a full paper is not required.

To be eligible for best paper award, a full paper submission is mandatory.
