High quality papers may be invited to be submitted to the IJIEM - International Journal of Industrial Engineering and Management (ISSN 2217-2661). The authors of selected papers will be invited after the conference conclusion and their papers will be subject to a normal IJIEM submission and review process. Authors of conference papers will also be eligible to publish their work in a special edition of the ​journal Businesses (ISSN electronic 2673-7116) at a discounted fee.

Please submit papers for the FUTURE-BME 2024 CONFERENCE via EasyChair platform.


Propositions regarding papers/proceedings

All submitted papers will be peer reviewed by the reviewers drawn from the scientific committee or external reviewers depending on the topic, title and the subject matter of the paper.  
Paper publication does not require presentation at the conference venue. 
Publication of one paper prior requires payment of one registration fee, regardless of the number of authors (is there one author or two/three co-authors). In case there are more than three coauthors, for each additional coauthor, 20 € will be added to the overall registration fee amount.
The official language of the conference is English. Papers may be written and presented in English.

Registration and peer review process

Abstracts are submitted on the website using Easy Chair System – email submissions are not accepted. The abstract should summarize the contents of the paper in short terms, i.e. up to 250 words. The document with its content is not attached to the submission of the abstract, but the text of the abstract is entered directly through the Easy Chair System. The complete instructions can be viewed in this file
Each abstract is reviewed in a double-blind peer review process. The double-blind review process ensure that both authors and reviewers remain anonymous during the peer review process. Authors do not know who conducted their reviews, reviewers do not know whose abstract/paper they are reviewing. 
Each abstract is subject to a review process. Authors will be notified using Easy Chair System if their abstract has been accepted. There is no second review of abstracts that have been accepted “with modification”. The modification of the abstract takes place when the full paper is submitted. 
Full papers are submitted for double-blind peer review after successful acceptance of a conference abstract. Please be sure that the submitted paper is in accordance with the available template. The only thing that should be left out of the attached template, in this step, is to list the names of the author and co-author. The paper should have between 5 and 8 pages. If a full paper exceeds 8 pages (A4 size), each additional page will be subject to a charge.
Peer reviewers provide a critical assessment of the paper, and may recommend improvements. Although the author may choose not to take this advice, it is highly recommended that the author address any issues, explaining why their research process or conclusions are correct. The complete instructions can be viewed in this file .
