Hybrid conference:

Q: What is a Hybrid Conference?

A hybrid conference is an event that combines both in-person and virtual elements, allowing participants to engage either face-to-face at a physical location or remotely through digital platforms. This format offers flexibility, accommodating those who can attend in person while also including those who, due to geographical, health, or other constraints, prefer or need to participate online. As a result, hybrid conferences can reach a wider audience and provide diverse ways of interaction, merging the traditional conference experience with the advantages of digital accessibility.


Q:Is the conference of this year going to be held online or in person?

The conference this year is going to be held in a hybrid format, meaning both online and in-person options will be available for participants. Attendees can choose to either join face-to-face at the physical location or remotely through digital platforms.


Q:Where will the venue of the conference be for in-person presentations?

The venue for in-person presentations at the conference will be at Alanya University, Alanya, Antalya, Turkey.


Q:Will this year’s conference be held just online via Zoom or face-to-face in Istanbul?

The conference will be in a hybrid model, which means both options will be available. You can decide to come to the conference to give your presentation face-to-face, or you will have also a chance to deliver your presentation online.  


Q: Is there a preferred topic and duration for the conference?

Please find the conference scope and Sub-Sessions from here: https://iccaua.com/page/home


Q:What is the difference between an In-person presentation and an online presentation at a conference?

In-person and online presentations at a conference differ in several key ways:

  1. Location: In-person presentations take place at a physical conference venue, while online presentations are held over the Internet using platforms like Zoom.
  2. Accessibility: Online presentations can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection, making them more accessible to a wider audience. In-person presentations are limited to the conference venue and attendees who are physically present.
  3. Technology: Online presentations often require the use of technology, such as laptops, cameras, and microphones. In-person presentations may also require technology, such as a projector and sound system, but these are typically provided by the conference venue.
  4. Cost: Attending an in-person conference can be more expensive due to the cost of travel, accommodation, and registration fees. Online conferences may be more affordable or even free, as attendees do not have to bear the cost of travel and accommodation.

Both in-person and online presentations have their own unique advantages and disadvantages, and the best format depends on the goals of the conference, the preferences of the attendees, and the budget and resources available.


Suggested journals after the conference:

Q: If we decline to submit the paper to the suggested journal, will it still be included in the conference proceedings?

By choosing not to publish in the suggested journal, your paper will be automatically published in the conference's full book proceedings of the conference also ICCAUA conference's journal proceedings. See the journal of the conference from here


Q: If your committee chooses our article for publication in a book chapter or any of your sponsored journals, would I be allowed to change the journal to my preferred journal?"

Unfortunately, no. The reason your article was selected for a specific journal or book chapter is that the editor of that particular publication expressed interest in your article. As a result, we cannot alter the decision and change the journal name.


Q: If the publication is rejected by the journal, what will be the fate of our written paper?  If your paper is rejected (with a probability of 4 percent, as per our experience), it will be automatically published in both the conference's full book proceedings and also ICCAUA conference's journal proceedings. See the journal of the conference from here


Q: After the full texts, we have sent are published as Proceedings, how will they be published in the specified journals?

Till the conference day, we will just publish the conference Abstract book proceedings. A day after the conference editors will select the articles for their own journals ( it may take two weeks) then we will publish the remaining full papers of the conference in the conference's full book proceedings. This is the best professional strategy to publish articles in scientific journals. 


Q: I was wondering if I agree to accept my paper to be reviewed and published in the journal of X and withdraw it from publishing in the conference proceedings book, will there be any chance my paper be rejected after their 'reviewing process'?

if you agree to accept your paper to be reviewed and published in our journal and subsequently withdraw it from publishing in the conference proceedings book, the chances of your paper being rejected after our reviewing process in the journal are very low. Our reviewing process is designed to ensure quality and relevance, and once your paper has been accepted, it is highly likely to be published in our journal. However, in the unlikely event that your paper does not meet the specific criteria or guidelines during our reviewing process, and if we are unable to proceed with its publication in our journal, we will make sure that your article is included in the conference full book proceedings as originally planned.


Q:  If I wish to choose for publication of my paper with one of the publishing partners (Journal)  that you have mentioned on the conference website, then what is the process?

If you wish to opt for publication of your paper with one of the publishing partners mentioned on the conference website, the process typically involves a few steps based on the provided information:

  1. Submission and Review: Initially, your paper would undergo a review process. This could either be directly through the conference's arrangement with its publishing partners or through your independent submission to the suggested journal, depending on the specific protocols of the conference.
  2. Editorial Interest: The decision to publish your paper in a specific journal or as a book chapter is influenced by the interest expressed by the editor of that publication. If your committee chooses your article for publication in one of the sponsored journals or as a book chapter, it indicates that the editor found your work aligning with their publication's scope.
  3. Fixed Publication Outlet: Once your paper is selected for a particular journal or book chapter, you would not be able to change the publication outlet to a preferred journal. This decision is based on the editorial interest and alignment with the publication's scope.
  4. Proceedings Inclusion: If you agree to have your paper reviewed for publication in the designated journal and decide to withdraw it from the conference proceedings book, it will undergo a reviewing process. The likelihood of rejection after this process is very low, given the designed quality and relevance checks. However, in the rare event that your paper is not published in the journal due to not meeting specific criteria or guidelines during the review process, it will be included in the conference's full book proceedings.
  5. Automatic Inclusion in Proceedings: If, for any reason, your paper is not published in the chosen journal (with a stated low probability of rejection), it will automatically be included in both the conference's full book proceedings and the ICCAUA conference's journal proceedings.


Q: If I select to go for one of the publishing partners (Journals or book chapters), then what is the paper publication in the conference proceedings handled?

If you opt to publish your paper with one of the conference's publishing partners and withdraw it from the conference's full book proceedings, a form will be sent to you to confirm and accept this exclusion. In this case, your paper will undergo a review process for publication in the chosen journal or book chapter, and upon acceptance, it will not be included in the conference's full book proceedings, as your agreement to the exclusion will be confirmed through the form you receive and submit.



Q:Time to finalize the registration process: According to the policy of our conference you can register directly as soon as you receive your preliminary acceptance letter.


Q: I received my preliminary acceptance letter, should i wait until the final acceptance of my full  paper to register? Or i can register online now?

Our policy allows for registration post-abstract approval to streamline the process, ensuring time efficiency. Based on the preliminary acceptance letter you are eligible to register to the conference. Full paper evaluations and any necessary communications will follow during the proceeding’s publication phase.


Q: Can I be informed about my full paper's acceptance or rejectionto publish in the conference full book proceedings before paying the conference registration fees due to financial constraints? I have just received preliminary acceptance letter for my abstract not for full paper.

Like other international conferences, our selection process is grounded in a preliminary review and acceptance of abstracts. This means that if your abstract has been reviewed and you have received a preliminary acceptance letter for your abstract, you are eligible to proceed with the conference registration. Following this, we are committed to ensuring the publication of your full paper in the conference's full book proceedings. Should there be any unforeseen issues arising during the publication process regarding your full paper for any revision, rest assured that we will communicate with you promptly to resolve these matters.  


Q: If I have submitted 2 papers, do I have to pay and register for one ticket or two for each article?

For two articles there is no discount. You may need to register twice.  If you have submitted three papers, the third one may be eligible for a discount.


 Q: We are three authors (in one article) . Do we have to pay and register for one ticket or three?

Regardless of the number of authors in one article, you need to register just one per each article.

Q: I submitted two abstracts and all received the acceptance letter. should I buy two tickets or one?

For two articles there is no discount. But the third one will receive 50 percent discount.


Q: We want to know how to complete our registration for the conference and how to pay the registration fees.

You may use the following link to start the registration process. https://iccaua.com/page/registration-fee


Q: I think this preliminary acceptance letter is just for my abstract. But, I want to publish the full text in the conference full book proceedings. If I pay the fee and register now, is there also the possibility that only the abstract will be published? or my full paper will also be published?

Your registration upon the preliminary acceptance letter of your abstract will guarantee that your full paper will be published in both conference full book proceedings as well as your abstract in the abstract book proceedings. During the process, our editorial team will support you in case of see any problems with your full paper.


Q: Our abstract received a “preliminary acceptance letter”. However, we could not see our name in the list of “finalized registered authors list”.

 After receiving the “preliminary acceptance letter” from us, you may need to finalize your registration and payment process. Then we will add your name to our list and website in our next update.


Q: Do we have to pay the fee before the full text is approved?

Yes, our policy is working like that. We are checking the abstract to see whether the methodology, title and outcome of your study are working or not. If yes, we are not waiting for the full paper to be received due to the matter of time. During the publication of the full book proceedings, we will let you know if there is any other problem to solve.


Q: We are 3 authors and all of us would like to join in person in the conference so do we pay for the registration once or each separately? Or is there a separate “visitor ticket”?

You may need to register just one time per each manuscript ID. The number of authors does not affect the registration fee. Just be aware that from our organization's point of view to hold the conference smoothly with this one registration fee there will be a possibility for one person from your team to participate face-to-face during the conference day (there is no limit for online participation). It means that there will be a “visitor ticket”. If you are three authors in one article, the other two co-authors will pay a "participation fee" by the time you register for your manuscript. The “visitor ticket” for this conference is 20 euros.  


Q: Do we have to pay the fee before the full text is approved?

Any time after two anonymous reviewers of our conference approve the originality of your abstract, you will be able to register and pay the registration fee. So, the answer is yes.

*I have sent two proposals for papers with different co-authors. I would like to know if I only pay for one registration or if each first author of the paper should also register for the event? 

For the two articles, we don't have a discount policy. it means that even if the first author of the two articles were the same we can not apply for the discount. If you have 3 articles with the same first author your third one will receive 50 percent discount. 



*Since three individuals are involved in the paper and one person will be presenting at the conference on behalf of three members, can we register that individual only?

Yes. The number of authors does not affect the registration fee. You would register just one time for one article even if you were 3 or 4 authors in one paper.


Q: I wanted to ask you about the author and co-author payment limitations. If I have paid for a paper presentation as a co-author, can I present another paper as an author? And vice versa?

It is possible for you to present both articles as long as your name appears in both of them and you have already completed the registration process. please keep in mind that based on our policy at least one author per article should participate to present on behalf of the other co-authors.


Q: If participants register this year, are they eligible to submit papers for the subsequent ICCAUA conference in the upcoming years as well? 

If participants register for this year's ICCAUA conference, their registration fee applies only for the current year. While we allow postponing participation to the next year, please note that the fee covers only one article per year. Thus, submitting papers in the upcoming years requires a new registration. 


Q: Would you please give me some information on the associated costs for paper publication, and whether there are any supplementary fees beyond registration and publishing? 

Your registration fee for the ICCAUA conference includes all publication costs for your article in both the abstract book proceedings and the full paper proceedings and participation in the conference. From the following link, you may see how we will spend the registration fee. 


Q: I’m inquiring about the payment fees. My card is in dollars, not euros. Does the site automatically convert the amount when I enter my card number, or do I need to use a card with a euro credit?

 I'm pleased to inform you that you can proceed with your payment using your card that is denominated in dollars. Our payment system, in conjunction with your bank, is equipped to automatically handle the currency conversion to euros. Therefore, there is no need for you to use a different card with a euro credit.    


Q: Can the corresponding author register for the conference and the other author present at the conference?

I'm pleased to provide clarification on the participation options available for you and your co-authors:

  1. Online Participation: If you and your co-authors prefer to participate online, only one registration is required. This means that the corresponding author can register for the conference, and all co-authors will be able to participate online without additional registrations. This approach is designed to facilitate seamless participation for teams preferring the convenience of online attendance.
  2. In-Person Participation: For those wishing to attend the conference in person, it is essential to note that in-person participation requires one registration per attendee due to the logistics and resources involved in accommodating participants on-site. Consequently, if one author registers for in-person attendance, they will be the primary delegate attending face-to-face. If other co-authors also wish to join in person, they may do so by registering as a spouse or guest, which incurs a significantly reduced fee compared to the standard registration. This option allows for flexibility and ensures that all interested co-authors have the opportunity to experience the conference environment directly, albeit with different registration categories.


* Should both authors' names be included in the registration ticket holder column?

It's not necessary to include both authors' names in the ticket holder column during registration. Ensure that the manuscript number and title are clearly specified to link your registration to your submission properly.

  • Is a single registration ticket sufficient for both authors to participate?

For online participation, a single registration ticket suffices for both authors. However, if both authors wish to attend in person, the second author needs to register as a spouse or co-author. This secondary registration covers their expenses during the in-person presentation at the conference venue, albeit at a reduced rate.


* Is it required to have both names on the ticket, or just one author?

Just one name is necessary for the ticket, preferably that of the corresponding author.


* How should co-authors register for a conference if one is attending in person and the others are attending online, and the registration system only allows adding co-authors for in-person attendance?

When one of the authors registered as in-person attendance, there's no need for additional registration. Both co-authors will be able to access all available sessions of the conference free of charge without the need for separate registrations.


* I paid the fee for the online English session which was a mistake, as I wanted to pay for in-person registration in the English session. What can be done now?  


To resolve this issue, please proceed to register again, this time as a spouse or guest, and ensure that you include your manuscript number during this new registration process. This will allow us to correctly associate your in-person participation with your initial online registration fee. Rest assured, once we have both registrations linked through your manuscript number, we will make the necessary adjustments on our end to reflect your in-person attendance and ensure that any discrepancy in registration fees is addressed accordingly.


Full paper

Q: Do the Full paper submission is mandatory if I don't want it to be published?

Note:  For Oral Presentation, it is required you to prepare a PowerPoint presentation (based on the paper that has been accepted for presentation). Your presentation should be a maximum of 10 minutes.  

 Note: The number of authors does not affect the registration fee. You would pay just one time for one Article even if you were 3 or 4 authors in one paper.

Q: It was stated as not mandatory to submit full text for the conference, but it seems to be mandatory in the confirmation letter that came to the paper I sent. Can I participate without a full-text paper?

Yes, you can. According to the international rules developed by the Ministry of Education of each country participation with just publishing your abstract and presentation on your abstract will receive academic points.


Q: Will all abstracts accepted for oral presentation be published in full text?

Yes, all the abstracts accepted for oral presentation be published in full text in the abstract proceeding book. If your article is selected for publication in the journals and if you accept to publish it in that journal it will be excluded from the conference full book proceedings to keep the originality of your work. But any both circumstances at least your abstract will be published in the conference abstract book proceedings. 


Q: Why I am not able to send the full paper to you anytime as I wish?- You have already accepted my abstract for publication in the conference book.

Our conference, like many other international conferences, operates on an abstract-based acceptance-registration system. We recognize that authors may prefer to participate with just an abstract and a presentation of their findings, and we respect this choice. Therefore, we do not mandate the submission of full papers directly. Your full paper will definitely be considered for publication at our conference, considering the fact that your abstract has already been accepted for publication (if you registered already). Should it require any revisions, we will inform you promptly once the submission platform for full papers opens and you successfully submit to that platform.


 In-person presentation:

Q: Is it possible to make the presentation with PowerPoint?  



Q: we are required to bring our own laptop to the venue of the conference or just a USB flash drive is enough?

No need to bring a laptop with you, our event place will provide the necessary tools to ensure that you will be able to present successfully. Just put your presentation in both pdf and PowerPoint format on your USB and bring it to the venue.


Q: Can I provide the organizers with a USB containing the presentation?

Yes, providing a USB with your presentation is the best option on the conference day. This ensures that you have a backup of your presentation and helps facilitate smooth transitions between speakers.


Q: I am attending this conference face to face (in-person - I will be in the conference venue), do I still need to upload a presentation video?

No. Since you will present your full paper face to face (maximum 10 minutes), no need to prepare any video. 


Q: Can I prepare a PowerPoint presentation for the in-person conference?

Yes. In-person presenters will also have 10 minutes of assigned time to present at the conference venue, so you can definitely prepare a PowerPoint presentation. Make sure to bring your presentation on USB with you. We are not responsible for collecting presentations during the in-person event.


Q: Shall I bring my own laptop?

No need to bring your own laptop, as we will set up the required infrastructure to run the conference smoothly. We'll provide the necessary equipment for presentations. Just make sure to bring your presentation in USB.


Q: As for the in-person presentations, how will the presentations take place for authors registered in the gallery?

The conference organizers will schedule presentations in designated time slots, usually based on the thematic grouping of the papers. The schedule will be shared with the authors well in advance, allowing them to prepare and plan accordingly. Powerpoint Presentations typically last for a predetermined amount of time,  10 minutes, followed by a Q&A session. Authors are expected to give a concise overview of their work, including the research question, methodology, results, and implications. It is essential to adhere to the time limit to ensure a smooth conference schedule.


Online presentation

Q: Is it obligated to send a video presentation to your conference? If I send a prepared video presentation, should I present my article live online again in the conference sessions?

Authors should submit a video presentation as part of the policy of our conference. You will not present live; instead, we will play your prepared video during the conference. It is obligatory for all authors to send a video presentation. Once your presentation has been played, you should be available to participate in a question-and-answer session with the session chairs and other authors from your session.

This policy has been implemented primarily to ensure that presentations do not exceed the allotted time. Experience has shown that some authors may unintentionally extend their live presentations well beyond their allocated slot, sometimes up to 30 minutes, leading to significant delays in the conference schedule. By requiring authors to prepare a 10-minute video presentation in advance, we aim to enhance the overall quality and efficiency of the conference. Additionally, having a polished video presentation allows authors to retain a high-quality record of their presentation for future use.   

Q: For Online or in-person presentation what kind of content should be provided in my online powerpoint presentation of my full paper?

It is important to ensure that your presentation is clear, concise, and engaging. Use visuals to support your points and avoid using too much text on each slide. Practice your presentation ahead of time to ensure that you can deliver it confidently and effectively. For PowerPoint presentation of your full paper at this conference, you should consider including the following content:

  1. Title slide: This slide should include the title of your presentation, your name, your affiliation, and the conference name and date.
  2. Introduction: Use this slide to introduce the topic of your presentation and explain why it is important.
  3. Literature review: Provide a brief overview of the existing literature on your topic and explain how your paper contributes to the field.
  4. Research methodology: Describe the research methodology used in your study, including the data collection methods and analysis techniques.
  5. Results: Present the findings of your study, using graphs, charts, or tables to illustrate your data.
  6. Discussion: Interpret the results of your study and explain how they relate to the broader field of research.
  7. Conclusion: Summarize the main points of your presentation and highlight the significance of your findings.
  8. References: Include a list of references cited in your presentation.
  9. Acknowledgements: Use this slide to acknowledge any individuals or organizations that supported your research.
  10. Q&A slide: Include a slide at the end of your presentation to encourage questions and discussion from the audience.

 Final Acceptance Letter: You will receive your final acceptance. On the last day of the conference.


Q: The letter of acceptance I received says " Provisional". Is this because the payment was not made?
Yes. After your payment, the status of your acceptance will change to Final. We will send the final acceptance letter to all the authors a week before the conference.
Note: On the 5th of each month after registration, you will see your name and the title of your manuscript on our website.  Due to the workload we have nowadays, we will send you the “final acceptance letter approximately a week before the conference.

* Don’t you think we need to have our full paper accepted before registration?

It's common for numerous international conferences to require registration fees before receiving the full paper. This policy is in place because presenting abstracts is often sufficient for academic promotion, and it's also in line with the guidelines of many national ministries of education.

Rest assured, I will manage the necessary adjustments on my end to ensure that your latest title and abstract are correctly aligned with your registration details.

General Questions:

Q: My level of English is very average, it will be possible for me to do the text and the 10 min video, but is it possible to have someone for the translation (English/French or Arabic) during face-to-face discussions? Because I may find it difficult to clearly express my answers to any questions on the day of the conference.

Yes, if it is an online presentation, you will have a chance to bring a translator to support you online during the meeting. But if you would like to participate face-to-face in our conference venue you may need to register your translator as an extra participant.
