CALL FOR TRACK CHAIRS
The EuroMed Research Business Institute solicits proposals for hosting specific tracks at the 9th Annual Conference of the EuroMed Academy of Business. 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. Proposals from industry are also encouraged and welcome.
Track proposals covering all areas of business and management studies are strongly encouraged.
In addition, proposals specifically related to the 2016 general conference theme – “INNOVATION, ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND DIGITAL ECOSYSTEMS” – are encouraged.
All track proposals will be reviewed by the Conference Organizing Committee with respect to the above criteria. The committee reserves the right to either: (1) accept the proposal as it is submitted, (2) recommend merging of considerably overlapping proposals, or (3) reject the proposal. Upon acceptance, the track chairs will be notified of the timetable and related responsibilities. The deadline for track proposal submissions is 24th of December, 2015.
The acceptance of track proposals will be announced on the 5th of January 2016.
We expect all Track Chairs to start the review process at the beginning of April and submit decision letters on late April 2016. The specific dates will be given later. Upon receiving all reviews, the track chairs are responsible to send them timely to the Director of Scientific Committee together with their recommendation on whether the paper should be accepted or rejected.
Track chairs will get a specific schedule for accomplishing of the review process. They will be responsible, among other things, for:
- Preparing a 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, 2016
In the framework of the conference, participants will have a chance to attend Digital Camp, study visits in the lab campus of the University of Warsaw especially designed for experiments, as well as an exhibition of the most recent innovative products.
