Some of you might remember my concerns about the new $25 submission fee for the 2018 International Conference on Creationism. Well, we came up with a pretty good idea for CBS members to get around that. At the CBS Executive Council meeting, we decided to pay the registration fees for up to twenty CBS members submitting papers to the ICC. You can find all the details at the Creation Biology Society website.
To be completely up front with everyone, I want to explain exactly how this is going to work. The Executive Council will be choosing which papers are going to have their submission fees paid, and EC members are eligible to have their own submission fees paid. We talked about excluding EC members from consideration, but we decided it would look weird to have other papers sponsored but not our own. Besides, it's just $25, and I don't think it's that big a deal. I prefer to think of it as a means of encouraging quality submissions to ICC.
So I hope everyone will get to work on important and innovative submissions for ICC 2018! Don't let that submission fee discourage you.
