Industry Sectors


Academic Conferences – CLEMS has organised a diverse range of academic research conferences which provide an open forum where the top researchers in a particular field come together, present their latest findings, and debate the issues surrounding their subject. Delegates in attendance gain unprecedented access to top-level research and can keep abreast of the latest developments.

Abstract Management, Call for Papers, Peer Review – CLEMS has extensive experience in assisting Organising Committees with the development and completion of their conference programs. Our fully integrated abstract collection system is a web based application which allows organizations to centralise the process of collecting, distributing, reviewing and managing abstracts and papers for conferences, meetings and other special events.

By providing an on-line, centralized location for the collection, management and review of abstracts and papers, authors, editors and reviewers can improve the speed of communication, reduce costs and offer a better service to their customers, members and delegates. This gives conference administrators and organizing committees flexibility and speed to collect and review conference submissions from anywhere in the world.
