The EuroMed Research Business Institute solicits proposals for hosting specific tracks at the 8th Annual Conference of the EuroMed Academy of Business, taking place on September 16th-18th, 2015 at the University of Verona, Italy. Track proposals covering all areas of management studies are strongly encouraged. Proposals specifically related to the 2015 general conference theme – “INNOVATION, ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND SUSTAINABLE VALUE CHAIN IN A DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT” - are especially welcome. Proposals from industry are also encouraged and welcomed.
Please note that all papers and abstracts accepted will be published in the Book of Proceedings (with an ISBN number) which is included in Conference Proceedings Citation Index
— an integrated index within Web of Science
. This prestigious distinction is given only to the most significant, in terms of academic excellence, conferences-conventions worldwide.
Prospective track chairs should submit a short description of subjects that will be included in their track. The proposed track should not be too general, but also not overly specialized, thus being able to attract a wide audience of people sharing similar interests.
All track proposals will be reviewed by the Conference Organizing Committee with respect to the above criteria. The committee reserves the right to: (1) accept the proposal as it is, (2) recommend merging of similar proposals with a considerable overlap, or (3) reject the proposal. Upon acceptance of a proposal, the track chairs will be notified of the timetable and related responsibilities.
The deadline for track proposal submission is 19th of December, 2014.
All proposals should be submitted electronically (in Microsoft Word format) to Dr. Evangelos Tsoukatos (email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org)
The acceptance of track proposals will be announced on the 24th of December 2014.
Track chairs will get a specific schedule for accomplishment of the review process. They will be responsible, among other things, for:
- Preparation of list of reviewers.
- Distributing papers/abstracts to reviewers with guidelines and evaluation forms (these will be provided by the EuroMed Academy of Business)
- Making sure that the review forms are returned back to them on time
- Following the reviews, the track chairs are required to provide for each paper/abstract their own accept/reject recommendation
- Submitting all recommendations by late April, 2015
