The 32nd IBIMA conference: 15-16 November 2018, Seville, Spain           

Seville is the capital of Southern Spain (Andalusia). The city is rich of history and various landmarks including for instance the Alcázar castle complex that goes back to the Moorish Almohad dynasty, and The Gothic Seville Cathedral which is the site of Christopher Columbus’s tomb. The city embraces a jovial culture full of festivals such as flamenco dancing.

Seville and all Andalusian region has a Mediterranean climate with hot summer and moderate temperature in winter. And this is an attraction for people that look for some warm weather compared to cold winters in Europe.  Throughout the year, the average temperature in Seville is above 19.2 °C (67 °F), and that makes it the warmest city in Europe.

This major international conference will address a range of important themes with respect to all major business fields.

The conference will include numerous papers and workshop presentations by academics and researchers from around the globe.  Conference participants are welcome to submit full papers, short papers, extended abstracts, paper drafts, or invited session proposals. Submitted papers will be fully refereed and published in electronic formats. Please refer to call for papers.

For those unable to attend the conference in person, virtual presentations are available. Virtual presentations allow participants to submit papers for refereeing and publication in the conference proceedings.   Virtual participants will receive a full copy of the conference proceedings in electronic format by regular mail or by online download.                   


If it takes long time to get travel request approved at your university and process VISA application, we recommend that you send your paper at the earliest possible date to allow us to receive the manuscript to reviewers and get reviews back in timely fashion.  The review cycle time tends to increase if you submit your paper right on the deadline date due to the large number of submissions around deadlines.

Interested academics and practitioners are invited to submit:

Research papers: complete papers (5000 words max.) with complete references section. 

Short papers: this could be research in progress, abstracts, ideas you would like to explore with audience at the conference, or draft of papers for possible co-authorship:  (max. 5 pages or 1500 words) 

IBIMA focuses on real-world business research.  All papers will be directed to the appropriate theme and/or track.  All accepted papers registered by author(s) will be published in the conference proceedings.

Virtual presentation is available if you are unable to attend conference activities in person. 

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and contribution.  It is IBIMA policy to make efforts to send complete papers to two reviewers for full blind peer review and to send a summary of review back to the author(s) .  Short papers/abstracts will be reviewed by a reviewer and/or the conference chair without sending review comments.  All review comments and suggestions should be addressed in the final submission.  Submitted Papers must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere

Conference proceedings will be published as an e-book on a USB (ISBN: 978-0-9998551-1-9) and will be sent after the conference to indexing at Web of Science and SCOPUS.

*IBIMA reserves the right to accept or reject any research/short paper proposal/submission. Reasons for rejection include, but are not limited to: topics not fitting the conference program main theme or panel subjects, insufficient space on the conference program, failure to meet professional obligations in prior IBIMA conferences (e.g., not completing a paper, not delivering a paper on time, failure to appear for a scheduled slot), failure to register for the conference, unprofessional conduct, or any other reason.

Accepted Papers

The following papers have been accepted for presentation in the 32nd IBIMA conference  and for inclusion in the conference proceedings. The list has two categories:  "Research papers" and "Short papers".

We have many papers that are still "under review". Accordingly this list is updated regularly.

We invited interested scholars, researchers, and managers to organize your own session(s) within the conference.  The special topic session is a unique opportunity that brings together researchers and audience from around the world to discuss a specific research question of interest and/or share research efforts with others who have worked in the same area.  These sessions could result in future joint research efforts, co-authorship of journal articles, and/or book publications.  Special topics session are highly beneficial if they are well organized.

The efforts of the Special Topics Sessions' Organizers will be recognized as follows:

  • The registration fee of the session organizer will be waived if at least 4 authors of invited papers register at the conference.
  • Session organizers names will appear on the conference proceedings as Associate Editors

You can submit a proposal to organize a special topics session, workshop, and/or tutorial.  Proposals to organize a special topic session should include the following information: name and address, e-mail of proposer, title of session, a 100-word description of the topic of the session, and a short description on how the session will be advertised.  Usually, session proposers solicit papers from colleagues and researchers whose work is known to the session proposer.  E-mail proposal to the conference chair. 

Each special topic session will have at least 4 papers. The session chairs will be responsible for all aspects of their sessions; including, soliciting papers, reviewing, selecting, etc.  The review process for invited sessions will strictly follow the review process for regular submission.  Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and contribution.  Each paper will be exposed to a full blind peer review by two reviewers in the topical area.  Final camera-ready papers will be reviewed by one reviewer. Papers must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.

Please e-mail conference Chair with your proposal.

Virtual Presentation

IBIMA has started the Virtual Presentations program in 2003.  The program has helped thousands of authors around the world to publish their research efforts in an international conference, get their papers internationally recognized and cited, and best of all enjoy having their papers indexed by top indexers in the world such as Scopus, Web of Science, Engineering Village,…etc.    

Virtual presentations program was carefully designed for those who are unable to attend the conference in person due to schedule conflict, teaching/research load, long flights to conference location, visa issues, or budget constraints but wish to participate with their research in this major international event. Virtual Presentations (with its reduced conference registration fee to almost 50% off regular fee) allows participants to submit papers for refereeing and publication in the conference proceedings, exactly the same procedures as regular papers.   Virtual participants will receive a full copy of the conference proceedings via regular mail on Official IBIMA  USB or via download.

Over the past 15 years, thousands of virtual presentations’ papers have been published and indexed at top indexers.

The review process for virtual presentations will strictly follow the review process for regular submissions.  Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and contribution.  

Each paper will be exposed to a full blind peer review in most cases. Short papers will be reviewed by the editor.  Summary of review feedback/reports will be sent back to the author(s) in most cases.  All comments and suggestions should be addressed in the final submission. Papers must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.

* Please note that a virtual presentation does not mean you are able to present remotely (e.g. Internet streaming or teleconferencing). 

32nd IBIMA Conference: 15-16 November 2018, Seville, Spain

  • Paper submission: CLOSED
  • Notification of Acceptance: Within 2-3 week from submission date (in most cases)


If it takes long time to get travel request approved at your university and process VISA application, we recommend that you send your paper at the earliest possible date to allow us to receive the manuscript to reviewers and get reviews back in timely fashion.  The review cycle time tends to increase if you submit your paper right on the deadline date due to the large number of submissions around deadlines.
