Abstract

This preface diccusses academic conferences are the cornerstone of academic research. They provide an opportunity for the participants to present their latest work or review their subject and to meet others with similar interests. Conferences promote the sharing of knowledge, debate and collaboration and often inspire new directions of research. They allow young researchers to see the great and the good of their field in action and provide the opportunity for their entrance into the academic limelight. It is unfortunate, therefore, that conferences these days are becoming large annual or bi-annual multi-event productions which are not only expensive but are also often run on a significant profit-making basis.
