Conference Guidelines

Before submitting for a Conference, please check:

  • The abstracts should be written in English and adhere to the template, which may be found in the “Call for Papers”.
  • All citations and references are formatted according to the Harvard style.

Discussion Forum

To facilitate interaction between conference participants and authors, each WEA Online Conference will have a designated Discussion Forum (DF). The Discussion Forum is online, and it includes all accepted papers and invited key-note addresses. WEA Members and visitors are strongly encouraged to comment on papers of interest to them. Whenever possible, conference leaders will also arrange for comments by designated discussants. All authors are also strongly encouraged to take part in the Discussion Forum by commenting on other papers. Comments are moderated prior to posting to ensure no libellous or hateful language is published.

Comments and replies are posted during the Discussion Forum period which normally lasts from four to six weeks. Leaders, in consultation with the Chair of the WEA Conferences, can extend the period to give the papers a fair chance of being commented on.

All papers and comments will be attributed and can be referenced. Authors and commentators will receive a conference participation certificate. We hope that this will encourage commentators to make novel points leading to possible development of the research topic.

The conference ends at the closing of the Discussion Forum.
