The 40th Annual Meeting is October 26th and 27th, 2017 at the Days Inn Penn State in State College, PA.

The Northeastern Association of Business, Economics and Technology invites papers for presentation at its Annual Meeting. The meeting provides an opportunity to present new research and discuss a variety of current issues in business, economics and IT. This is your chance to get involved with a dynamic, regional academic organization. Faculty Submissions can be based on either complete or incomplete scholarly work, workshops or discussion panels.

NABET is politically non-partisan. Please do not submit papers that focus on political, religious, gender, or other societal and cultural issues. Such papers will be deemed inappropriate for the NABET Conference.

NABET Conference Rules:

  1. The author of an “Accepted” submission (Acceptance by the reviewers is based on subject and content of the Abstract) agrees to present his/her paper at the NABET Conference.
  2. Each author may submit up to two Abstracts representing two separate papers (presentations).  Authors will not be permitted to present more than two papers.
  3. Each paper must be presented by the lead author or coauthor(s) who are acknowledged on the paper.  Surrogates will not be permitted to present papers, only the author(s) will be allowed to present their paper.
  4. If none of the authors attends the conference, the paper will not be presented, and acknowledgement of the paper and the authors will be removed from the Official Conference Program.
  5. Any and all papers that are presented at the Conference will have the right to be published in the peer-reviewed Conference Proceedings.  An author shall have the right to decline publication in the Proceedings.
  6. Any and all accepted Abstracts will be published in the Conference Proceedings, unless the author(s) fail to present the paper at the Conference, or if the author(s) expressly decline publication of the Abstract in the Proceedings.
  7. Undergraduate students may not attend the NABET Conference.  Undergraduate students may not be lead authors of any paper which is submitted to the NABET Conference.
  8. Even if an undergraduate student is acknowledged as a coauthor of a paper (where a faculty is the lead author), he/she may not attend the NABET Conference.  In this case, the paper must be presented by the faculty who is the lead author.
  9. A graduate student may attend the NABET Conference and present his/her paper, as long as the Abstract has had a successful peer-review and has been accepted by the NABET Conference Team.

10. All authors of accepted Abstracts must complete the registration process and pay the conference fee (via the NABET website) in order to attend the conference and present his/her work. Even though an Abstract may have been accepted for presentation, if an author has not completed registration nor paid the conference fee on or before October 10, 2017, that paper and acknowledgement of the author(s) will not appear in the Conference Program.  If such an author pays the conference fee after October 10th, but before October 27th, he/she will be scheduled to present the paper at a session on Friday afternoon, October 27th.  Acknowledgement of that presentation will appear in the Official Conference Program (to be published in November, 2017).

11.  If an author has registered and paid the conference fee, and does not present his/her paper, he/she will be deemed a “no-show” and acknowledgement of that paper will not appear in the Official Conference Program.  In such a case, the conference fee will be forfeit; a refund will not be issued.
