About the conference

The annual conference is a place for researchers, academics, and practitioners alike to come together and share their knowledge, research and best practices.  The conference is open to all areas of business and management, including but not limited to:  Business, Management, Accounting, Marketing, Finance, Human Resource Management, Information Technology Management, Operations Management, Information Systems, Economics, Electronic Commerce, etc.

Journal Publication

Full papers accepted for the conference will be published in a special issue of The International Journal of Innovations in Business (indexed and listed in most major indices).  In the past CIBMP conferences have been sponsored by various journals including The International Journal of Online Marketing and the International Journal of Finance and Management, both of which published papers from the conference.

Doctoral Symposium

Doctoral researchers (PhD scholars) are strongly encouraged to attend and participate in the doctoral symposium which is being held concurrently.  The doctoral symposium offers PhD scholars the opportunity to share their research or ideas with other likeminded individuals and get feedback.  You can submit an abstract of your research.  The research can be in any stage of the process.  You will benefit from getting feedback on your work, meeting other students who may be doing similar work and the opportunity to network with people from all across the globe.

Quick paper selection process

All papers are blind peer reviewed.  However, we endeavor to get back to you in the shortest possible time frame.  The conference works on a first come, first reserve basis.  Once a paper has been submitted, it will be sent off to reviewers.  If the paper passes the criteria for selection, i.e. it gets enough marks from the reviewers, a notification will be sent immediately.  Hence, there is no need to wait for deadlines, and you as the author will get a reply in a short period of time, allowing you to make appropriate arrangements for your travel, etc.

Online presentations

For those speakers who are unable to attend the conference physically, you can still have your paper published!  We will allow you to make an online presentation.  You can send us your presentation and/or a video, which will then be uploaded to the site.  This will allow you to have a paper published, and get feedback!  Please contact us if you have any issues in getting to London, and would like to arrange an online presentation.  You can get in touch with us at

Volunteer to be a reviewer / session chair

Organize a special session

If you would like to arrange a special session on a particular topic of interest then you will need to submit a proposal for this.  The special session can be any topic, however you need to justify its relevant to the conference.  You should also specify the proposed speakers within this session.  Please note, if you wish to submit a proposal for a special session, you will be responsible for arranging the speakers for this session.
