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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. The conference will also organize a â€˜meet the editorsâ€™ event, where you will have the opportunity to meet with journal editors to find out what it takes to get your work published.
Although we can provide a relatively fast decision on your paper (within 7-14 days), we do have a limited number of spaces available for presenters. Therefore it is suggested that you send us your papers as soon as possible. Never-the-less the following are a list important dates for you to put down in your diaries:

(We encourage you to submit your abstract as early as possible to get your feedback about paper acceptance)
