2019 International Conference on Business and Economics (ICBE2019) and
16th International Conference of KODISA

Yeosu City, South Korea, July 8- 10, 2019


The conference offers keynote speeches, formal paper symposia, case study presentations, special sessions, and industry leadership and public policy panel discussions as well as doctoral research seminars. Academics, policy makers, business leaders, professionals, and doctorate students can choose from a wide range of programs.

To revisit the theme of Yeosu 2012 Expo: The Living Ocean and Coast: Diversity of Resources and Sustainable Development, ICBE2019 aims to help shed light on humankind’s knowledge and advancement of technology concerning the ocean and coast and identify ways to resolve challenges facing the ocean. Industrial activities have damaged the marine ecosystem and subsequently reduced fish stocks. As a result, the ocean faces severe crisis. A damaged marine ecosystem, global warming and natural disasters are not limited to a certain country or region, but are issues that have global implications. Our economies and societies must break away from their current fossil fuel-based economies to minimize damage to both people and the environment. The theme argues that individuals, businesses, countries and the global community must realize that marine resources are limited and should not be subject to careless use, but that they are the fundamentals for the sound development of our future society, and people and ecosystems must be considered on the same level.

In addition, since ICBE Proceedings’ inclusion in Web of Science CPCI, we have received large demand for some extension of the scope of the conference submission, including new Business, Social Sciences, and Multidisciplinary research and the methodology of Case Study Research, Short Communications, Research Notes, Qualitative Research, Conceptual Research, which require non-quantitative research methods and non-econometrics and/or statistical analysis.  In this regard, ICBE2019 Conference will invite selectively some non-quantitative/non-econometric papers if those articles satisfactorily meet the required quality and standards of ICBE Proceedings.
