Organization of the e-Conference

Two phases of the e-Conference realization will be applied.

The first phase will be realized as the e-Pre-Conference Discussion (from 17 to 20 December 2018), and this phase will be followed by the posting at the COAS website different textual forms sent by the e-Conference participants, such as discussions, analyses, critics, comments, suggestions, proposals, etc., regarding exposed abstracts. All textual forms will be reviewed and posted at the COAS website by the e-Conference moderators, appointed by the Scientific Committee.

The second phase is the e-Conference Discussion, and it will be realized at the e-Conference day (21 December 2018), from 00 to 24 (GMT+01:00). This discussion will be realized in the same way as the e-Pre-Conference discussion, regarding the full texts exposed at the COAS website.

All accepted abstracts will be exposed at the COAS website, from the beginning of the e-Pre-Conference Discussion (17 December 2018, GMT+01:00), till the moment of online publishing, or publishing in one of the COAS Open Journals. Each full text will be exposed at the COAS website, at the beginning of the e-Conference Discussion (21 December 2018, GMT+01:00), till the moment of online publishing, or publishing in one of the COAS Open Journals.

The accepted abstracts and full texts will be published in the e-Conference Proceedings, with regular ISBN number, or in the one of COAS Open Journals (authors choose the option). The e-Conference Proceedings will be published online, 5-10 days after realization of the e-Conference in an open access mode, and submitted for indexing in different international databases. The key conclusions from the e-Pre- and the e-Conference discussions will be summarized and also published as part of the e-Conference Proceedings, by decision of the Scientific Committee.

The abstracts and full texts are necessary to be prepared according to the Guide for Authors, which is applied as propositions for the manuscripts submitted for the COAS Open Journals.

Reviewing Process

All submitted abstracts/full texts will go through two reviewing processes: (1) double-blind (at least two reviewers), and (2) non-blind (two members of the Scientific Committee). Final decision for the presenting and publishing depends of the two kinds of reviews, thus a paper should be recommended by non-blind reviewers and blind reviewers, in order to be accepted for presentation at the conference and to be published in the e-Conference Proceedings.
