Academic Conferences International (ACI) is based near Reading, South Oxfordshire in the UK with a North American office in Montreal, Canada. ACI operates on a world-wide basis, holding conferences in Continental Europe, North and South America, the Middle East and Africa. The primary service provided by ACI is the management of academic conferences on behalf of universities and other higher education institutions. Once a call for papers has closed they arrange for them to be checked for appropriateness and then send selected authors a notification inviting them to submit a full paper. On receipt of full papers they distribute them out to members of the programme committee for double blind reviewing. They receive the reviewers’ comments and pass them onto the authors. Once a paper has been accepted for publication and presentation at the conference they prepare and publish the conference proceedings, both in electronic and paper form.
