EDMI 2020: Preface

Article Title : Preface: 2nd International Symposium on Economic Development and Management Innovation (EDMI 2020)

This proceeding includes original and peer-reviewed research papers from the 2nd International Symposium on Economic Development and Management Innovation (EDMI 2020), held online on June 20-21, 2020. The aim of EDMI 2020 is to provide a platform for accountants, financial industry practitioners, scholars, managers and graduate students from different cultural backgrounds to present and discuss research, developments and innovations in all fields of Economic Development and Management Innovation. It provides opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences, to establish business or research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration. EDMI 2020 received 291 manuscripts. And 57 submissions had been accepted by our reviewers and the Press. By submitting a paper to this EDMI, the authors agreed to the review process and understood that papers undergo a peer-review process. Manuscripts were reviewed by appropriately qualified experts in the field selected by the Conference Committee, who gave detailed comments and-if the submission was accepted the authors would submit a revised version that considered this feedback. All papers were reviewed using a double-blind review process: authors declared their names and affiliations in the manuscript for the reviewers to see, but reviewers did not know each other’s identities, nor did the authors receive information about who had reviewed their manuscript. The Committees of EDMI 2020 invested great efforts in reviewing the papers submitted to the conference and organizing the sessions to enable the participants to gain maximum benefit. Due to the COVID-19, the hotel in Hohhot cannot hold meetings with more than 30 people. Some of the committee members were from Wuhan City, and they need to isolate themselves for two weeks if they want to go to Hohhot to participate in the conference. And many authors who arranged to attend the conference contacted us there were unable to reach the conference site due to various reasons. We finally decided to hold the meeting online. Due to technical reasons, all posters were cancelled. And the allocated presentation time for oral contributions is easier to execute. It's just that online meetings may not be attractive enough compared to face-to-face meetings.

With our warmest regards,
