ICABE organizers invite anyone who wishes to present a paper to submit an abstract in English as early as possible online. Final paper must be submitted by September 21st 2017 at the latest to be assigned to an interviewer for evaluation before the conference. Selected papers will be published in one of the journals participated in the conference or in the collective volume dedicate to the main theme of the conference (Journals and collective volume in Scopus) online submission form.
Submitting a Paper
The abstract should be about 200-300 words. All fields of specialization within business and economics will be taken into consideration. You will receive a notification by e-mail once your paper is accepted (or rejected). By submitting an abstract, you also agree to contribute to the discussions and/or to their session Chair and Discussants within your area of specialization. The web form provides an opportunity to identify your areas of specialization. A participant may not present more than two papers. Consequently, you cannot register more than two papers for presentation unless a third paper is presented by a co-author who also is registered to participate in the conference.
Besides the abstract registration, full-length papers can be submitted either by providing a web link to a corresponding PDF file on the registration form, or by uploading a PDF file to the ICABE server by following the link on the bottom of the registration confirmation page. Paper/hard copy submissions will not be accepted. In all cases, presenters are required to provide to their session chair and discussant a copy of their paper (preferably electronically) at least 2 weeks prior to the conference.
Please note that in order to attend or present a paper, you must register for the conference. Registration is made online through the conference website or by a bank deposit. We strongly encourage those contributing papers to become members of the International Strategic Management Association. You may join the ISMA and register after you find out whether your paper is accepted for presentation. In any case, do not delay too long since late registration involves a higher fee.
Presenting a Paper
Paper sessions will consist of three to four presentations in a 90 minute session divided equally among the presenters. Workshop presenters will be given the full 90 minute session. Panel sessions will last 90 minutes and it is to the presenters’ choice how that time will be split among panelists.
The equipment available for the presentations will be:
Laptop Computer (Please see notes below regarding the laptops) *
LCD Data Projector (with screen)
Overhead Transparency Projector (must provide own transparencies)
* The laptops will accept CD-ROMs, and USB “Flash” drives. However, they ARE NOT equipped with floppy disk drives. If you have your presentation on a floppy disk, please visit the registration desk and we will transfer the files onto a CD-ROM or USB Flash Drive for you with a minimum charge. Microsoft PowerPoint, Word, and Excel are installed on each laptop for your convenience. We will not be able to install any special software that your presentation may require. However, if you brought your own laptop, you may use it instead of the one that is provided.
