Submission Rules

Authors who want to submit a paper must be register as the first step.

As a consolidated IAC policy, each individual is limited to one personal appearance on the programme as a presenting author. This policy precludes acceptance of papers for more than one presentation. In other words, an author can submit and present only one paper. However a presenter can always be a non-presenting co-author on additional papers.

Authors are invited to submit full papers. The deadline for the submission of papers is 3 April 2012, 23:59 GMT.

A full paper is a complete scholarly research report that could reasonably be submitted for publication in a public working paper data base such as SSRN.

Papers will be subject to a double-blind review process by the Scientific Committee. So please do NOT include neither a cover page with your submission, nor any type of information that can identify you (no name, no address, no e-mail address, no acknowledgments or thanks). Information typically provided on a cover page will be entered on the on-line submission form.

Papers can only be submitted electronically via this website’s E-mail, iac.alzahra@yahoo.com. Abstracts will be included in the congress book, so they should not exceed 1.500 characters.

Papers received by postal mail, fax or in writing will not be considered.

Papers should be submitted in English or persian.

Confirmation of acceptance or rejection by the IAC will be given after 24 April 2012 and mailed to the corresponding address of the presenting author (unless another author is selected as a contact person).

The presenters of an accepted paper must register as a participant for the conference before 14 May 2012.

Please take into account that once a paper is included in the programme, the author should present it in the conference or officially notify the organizers of its withdrawal.
