Fly to Oxford for a fake academic conference on climate change

Here's an attractive invitation to researchers from around the world: fly to Oxford England to discuss the environment, sustainability and climate change at a fake academic conference:
You are invited and encouraged to make a presentation and to provide a paper on a relevant aspect of the topic, however, your participation as a member of the Round Table is not contingent thereon. Those not presenting papers will be placed on a discussion panel. Papers presented at the Round Table may be subsequently submitted for publication in the Forum, a journal of the Oxford Round Table. Papers considered for publication in the Forum are evaluated by peer reviewers as to technical and substantive quality and for potential to make a significant contribution to new knowledge in the field. Papers and presentations regarding the following areas are of particular interest to the conference. However, these suggested areas of research and writing are not meant to be limitations and the conference programme is open to all substantive areas of formal and informal research in education.
(Since the conference is slated for May 2014, the organizers must be unusually efficient).

The Oxford Round Table is a US based and incorporated for-profit which has been multiply incorporated and dissolved and reincorporated in various states. It has no affiliation with Oxford University.
