PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE

To submit a paper, you must first register at the conference planning website: https://www.conftool.pro/ibefa2017/ or go to the IBEFA website (www.ibefa.org) and follow the link to the paper submission site under the heading “Call for Papers – WEAI.” If you experience any submission difficulty, please contact Niki Maas (ibefa.conferences@gmail.com).

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Please note that there is no paper submission fee. However, at least one author from each accepted paper must be an IBEFA member as of March 15, 2017. Authors of (provisionally) accepted papers, who are not members, will be given the opportunity to join before the program is finalized.

The presenting author of an accepted paper must also register to attend the WEAI Conference. Because IBEFA is an allied society, registration is available at the WEAI member rate after joining IBEFA; for information see http://www.weai.org/AlliedSocieties.html.

The presenting author will be required to discuss a paper if asked to do so by the Program Chair. The overall quality of our conference is greatly enhanced when presenting authors also provide a high quality discussion of another scholar’s work.
