The Global Conference on Innovations in Management will take place in London, UK on July 21-22, 2011. The conference is dedicated to research and best practice within the business and management areas, both within the public as well as the private sector. The call for papers is now open. The conference offers researchers a chance to present their work in all areas of business and management as well as having their work published in both the conference proceedings and a referred journal. The conference also offers participants an excellent learning opportunity.
About the Conference
The global conference is a place for researchers, academics, public sector workers and practitioners alike to come together and share their knowledge, research and best practices. The conference is open to all areas of business and management, including but not limited to: Marketing, Finance, Human Resource Management, Public Sector Management, Information Technology Management, Information Systems, Economics, etc.
CIBMP has teemed up with a number of journals for various conferences. In our last conference, two journals sponsored special issues for the CIBMP. The International Journal of Online Marketing and the International Journal of Finance and Management published over 30 papers in two special issues.
Similarly for the Global Conference 2011 we have teamed up with the International Journal of “Innovatory Marketing” and to International Journal of Finance and Management publish special issues. Each journal will have their own selection criteria. It is recommended that you visit the sites of these journals to get more info. Also, please note that CIBMP itself does not run these journals, nor do we manage them. If you have questions related to these journals, please contact them directly.
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 email@example.com.
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 like-minded 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 ‘meet the editors’ 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:
· Final date for abstract submission: May 31, 2011
(We encourage you to submit your abstract as early as possible to get your feedback about paper acceptance)
· Early bird registration ends on April 30, 2011
· Last date for registration: July 1, 2011
· Conference dates, July 21-22, 2011
