June 23-25, 2020

According to the law on data protection, you have to register on the ACIEK platform every year, that means that the mail and password generated in previous conferences are not valid.


The situation of coronavirus is still uncertain and the virus hits many countries. Many authors concern if they can make the trip to ACIEK 2020. Our committee come out a contingency plan. If the virus situation does not allow you to attend the conference and present the paper, we can play your presentation video in the conference or we set up the facility for you to present your paper live from your location. Hence, no matter how the virus situation goes, we can still have all the paper presentations either on the spot or via Internet (either video or live).

As for the recommendation to the subsequent reviews for publication in a journal, we will proceed as usual. The recommendation will be made based on your paper quality and the way you present the paper will not affect the recommendation.

Hence, to facilitate the administration of the conference, we still encourage you to complete the registration as soon as possible. Should you have any question, please contact OKRE, cristina.bonet@okreobservatory.com
