Characteristics of "Predatory" Conferences and Warning Signs

Characteristics of "predatory" conferences

"Predatory" conferences exploit and profit from researchers who try to present their research at international conferences. The "predatory" conferences are characterized by careless organization and low academic quality without peer review of the research submitted for examination. Conference organizers make money by charging extremely high registration fees. Sometimes, after registration and payment, the conference is "cancelled" but the registration fee is not refunded.

If one or more warning signs are found, the conference should be considered "predatory"
