10th International Conference on Management and Economics

 Main Session

Special Notice

Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 in the island, the organizers opted to host the ICME 2021 as a virtual conference, preserving as much of the synchronous online experience as possible. Although this may sound disappointing for some participants, we had to scramble, so that ensuring that the health of conference participants is not at stake. We were initially thinking of possibility of a hybrid approach; allowing for some local, in-person presenters and attendees while also accommodating those who wish to participate remotely. However, we finally decided to expand our virtual program to take about more than three-fourths of the conference online. Accordingly, ICME 2021 will only accommodate virtual presenters and participants due to COVID-19 having reached a state where there is no room for hosting an offline conference.
