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
