I wonder who was at fault?

We're lucky it wasn't a climate-change panel - woulda been slated as the keynote.

I think I have a company Christmas party and the other day but I will be online in the morning to check it and let you get it from you about it. You have people who don't have the ability of this mean quesadilla or something. I got rear ended up with a tyranny while you are in the presence of the day you still want to see you at the office in the morning.

My industry has a pretty respected organization that publishes several journals as well as puts on conferences/conventions.


You've got to know who's behind conferences like that, and make sure you're publishing with only the reputable ones.

If you read the article, it was clear that the "conference" was a scam and was charging speaker fees. All this proves is that scumbags are trying to scam scientists along with any other victims they can find.

"But the acceptance of Bartneck’s fake study may be less surprising. Between its poorly designed website, open calls for abstracts, and vague location, the conference smacks of a scam."

There are shitty conferences and journals out there, but that doesn't mean that all of them are.
