Call for Papers

FEMIB is sponsored by INSTICC – Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication


We live in a fast-paced and interconnected world, in which different focuses in businesses are related and dependent on each other. Four emerging areas of business: Finance, Economics, Management and IT Business (FEMIB) are essential for each country, organization, society and individual as follows. Finance is important to the individual, corporate and national wealth, profits and long-term future. Economics can help us understand how the past and current status of the regional, national and global financial performance. Management allows organizations, governments, decision-makers to make their projects and services more structured, efficient, productive and competitive. IT business stands for new trends of development, opportunities and innovation. We believe that only doing well in these four areas, this can ensure each organization, decision-maker, investor, government and country to achieve long-term success and collaboration. Our aim and objective are to bring scientists, practitioners and decision-makers of these four areas together to foster a strong and well-connected community. We welcome innovative ideas, concepts, services, techniques, research outputs and business practices.
