update THE INC conference
  • publication: 9 april 2020

THE-INC2020 Conference to go fully online.

With all the cancellations and postponements of academic conferences, StendenHMS are very pleased to be able to announce that the THE-INC conference WILL go ahead in June. However, given the Dutch government restrictions due to Covid19, the conference will be conducted totally online. This has meant a change in the programme, as a Gala Dinner with only one attendee is not a lot of fun! Here is what we are planning:

The THE-INC2020 conference will run on two days - 10 and 11 June 2020. All 100 accepted papers will be presented, and our Keynotes from Professors Don Getz, Fevzi Okumus and Marina Novelli will still be presented. We will have Q&A sessions, best paper awards, and the opportunity to publish your papers in special issues of the supporting journals. We will not unfortunately have a drinks reception, coffee breaks, lunches or a gala dinner. As a result the conference fee will be reduced to Euro 100 per person. This will cover our conference organising costs, and the additional costs of ICT specialists to run our conference through ZOOM software.  We will still have a conference bag and will post those out to every paid-up delegate. We will shortly be sending out presentation submission details and instructions for logging on to present/attend sessions. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us through the conference website https://theinc2020.wordpress.com/ and we will get back to you as soon as we have the answers to your queries. 

Regards and stay safe.
