Review Process

All submissions will be evaluated through a blind review process. Authors will be notified of a decision on or near 30th April, 2019.

 

Further Considerations

Upon acceptance, a minimum of one author is expected to fully attend the WASM conference and deliver the presentation according to the scheduled day and time. The WASM organization and the conference organizer may have other requirements that must be met by an author. Should an author not comply with the requirements, the scientific program chair or conference organizer reserves the right to remove the presentation from the conference schedule.

All accepted abstracts have the potential to be included in the WASM conference abstracts book if all of the submission requirements have been met. Authors are also invited to submit a whole paper to the scientific program chair for review and possible inclusion in a WASM Series book of research papers to be published by the Taylor & Francis Group publishers.

 

Scientific Committee

Dear researchers,

We expect to be receiving a high number of submissions of challenging papers that will generate engaging discussions that will lead to new research and new academic and professional opportunities.

Our Committee is ready and looking forward to read your works.
