1. Deadline for Proposals (Posters)
By 1st of August, authors should submit a one-to-two-page proposal (poster) for their papers including the title, a short description of the topic(s) to be addressed, the approach that will be taken, and a survey of existing actuarial literature on the subject (title and abstract of a maximum of the five most relevant papers). Proposals, along with authors’ contact information, should be submitted via e-mail to the SSBM at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put "IBIS2022 Call for Papers" in the subject line.
2. Acceptance of Proposals
By 15th of August 2022, the Committee will make a decision on all proposals. The number of accepted proposals might be limited. The Committee will contact authors regarding their proposals.
3. Monitoring Progress
A Committee member will be assigned to work with each author to monitor the paper's progress and provide general guidance in completing the paper within the specified timelines. Interim drafts, based on a schedule proposed by the author, may be requested. By 15th of September 2022, a first draft of the completed paper (including an abstract of no more than 200 words) will be submitted to the assigned Committee member for review and comments. By 20th of September, all comments on the first draft will have been forwarded to the author.
4. Completion Date
By 1st of October 2022, the IBIS2022 Committee must receive the completed paper with a 200-word abstract and a presentation limited to 15 minutes in length. Authors should also provide the classifications for their papers. Each paper will be screened by the Committee to assure its quality of exposition and relevance to the call. The Committee may require further rewriting of the paper to bring it to an acceptable standard.
5. Approving the Completed Paper
By 5th of October 2022, all authors will have been notified as to the results of this screening process. Before that time, the Committee will try to give authors time to respond to comments from the screening process. Accepted papers will be published in the SSBM E-Proceedings and will be available on the SSBM Web Site prior to the research conference at which the papers will be presented. The Committee will determine which papers are published in the SSBM E-Proceedings. The Committee reserves the right to not publish a submission.
6. Presenting the Paper
Authors may be invited to present their papers at the IBIS 2022 Research Conference scheduled for 21st and 22nd of October 2022 in Zagreb, Croatia. Each invited author should make every effort to attend the Research Conference and present his/her paper. These authors will be contacted in advance of the meeting.
7. Prize Competition
All papers submitted and accepted in response to the call and meeting the minimum standards established by the Committee will be included in the IBIS Best Research Competition. A prize fund of 1.000€ is available for papers submitted in response to the call. If awarded, prizes will be presented to the author(s) at the IBIS 2022. There is also no guarantee that the total monetary fund, set at a level to recognize more than one paper, shall be exhausted. The criteria for evaluation will reflect:
o Originality of ideas;
o Clarity of presentation;
o Contribution to research field; and,
o Thorough treatment of those ideas.
8. Submission Guidelines
Papers must be no more than 10,000 words and should be prepared in accordance with the IBIS Research Paper Template and Harvard Citations Style, and the procedures in the SSBM E-Proceeding on the SSBM Web Site. Additional guidance for the preparation of technical papers for publication is provided in the Guides for the Submission of Papers on the SSBM Web Site. Authors will be required to execute a “Permission to Publish” form, which formally grants the SSBM permission to publish the paper. Authors are encouraged to submit working templates in spreadsheet form for models or methods discussed or developed in their papers and/or PowerPoint presentations incorporating the details of the paper's calculations. The spreadsheets and presentations will be posted on the SSBM Web Site along with the paper.
It is hoped that the authors will also submit their papers for publication in GBIS (Global Journal of Business and Integral Security) in accordance with its submission procedures. However, acceptance of a paper for this call does not guarantee its acceptance for publication in GBIS.
The Committee looks forward to receiving proposals in response to the call and is happy to respond to inquiries from interested parties.
Questions may be addressed to Committee/Chairperson via e-mail at email@example.com. Your participation in this effort to produce new papers will contribute to the written body of knowledge for the SSBM and to the success of the IBIS 2022 Call Paper Program.
