World Conference Update – 28th January 2019

Over the month of February the local conference team at Dublin City University (DCU) will be offering a number of webinars to help explain the conference themes, describe the different paper categories and provide advice and support on how to prepare a successful paper submission. If this is your first ICDE World Conference or you are a new and emerging researcher in the area, then participating in one of the following webinars should be of particular benefit. They will provide an opportunity to ask questions about the conference and help you to prepare a successful paper submission.

Each session will explore some of the conference sub-themes and will provide guidance on the kinds of submissions that might relate to each of these. In addition advice will be provide on how to submit good abstracts, such as the importance of having a good title, a clear abstract providing a summary of the presentation and an indication of how it relates to the conference sub-themes. The sessions will be engaging and interactive and participants will have the opportunity to explore the conference questions:
