We’ll continue following our strategy regarding the publication of the conference proceedings where all the extended abstracts accepted for presentation at the conference will be published. The conference proceedings will be Open Access, which provides the best opportunities for the research to make the biggest impact on the academic community. You may find examples of the proceedings of the previous conferences here: "New Challenges in Corporate Governance: Theory and Practice" and "Corporate Governance: Examining Key Challenges and Perspectives".

All the papers presented at the conference may be also published in one of the special issues of the Virtus Interpress journals. These papers will be subject to a separate double-blind reviewing process after the conference.
