Call For Papers

This is your chance to speak at a major international conference and share your experience, best practices or your leading edge management research. This is an opportunity for employees, managers, CEOs, consultants to present and share best practices (perhaps for the first time at a major conference) and Academics to present a peer-reviewed conference paper and get them fast-tracked into leading journals.

We encourage you to submit a full Abstract (500 words) or a Paper (written article of a maximum of 8 pages). Those that meet the required standard (as assessed by an International Technical Committee) will be invited to give a presentation and can register for the Congress at discounted speaker rates.

Speaker places are limited and only those abstracts/papers that are considered to be of most value will be selected. Dependent on the quality of the Abstract/Paper and its fit with the Congress objectives you will be invited to give either a Full Presentation (between 20 to 30 minutes dependent on the final programme) or an Overview Presentation (between 5 to 10 minutes dependent on the final programme). There will also be an opportunity for questions and answers.

Abstracts/papers will only be published in the conference proceedings if one or more of the authors register to speak at the Congress.

The best papers will be considered for the Best Paper Award and fast-tracked for publication in one of the following international journals:

  • TQM Journal
  • Measuring Business Excellence Journal
  • International Journal of Quality & Reliability Management
  • International Benchmarking Journal
  • International Journal of TQM and Business Excellence

The winners of the Best Paper Award and other selected papers will be profiled in the Business Performance Improvement Resource,, with the author’s agreement.
Your paper should provide practical examples of benchmarking, best practices or the application of tools and techniques that assist organisations in their pursuit of excellence. Papers that show how excellence models and their core concepts can align to national objectives and building capabilities in the government and economy are welcomed.
