More spam from a fake academic conference organizer

This morning I find myself invited to yet another fake academic conference (or "spamference"), this one in Hong Kong on something or other*, by fake academic conference organizer Higher Education Forum. These emails from fake conferences and journals are like the spam fake viagra emails and Nigerian letters from a decade or two ago---and that tells us that this too shall pass, with something else taking up its niche in the scam spam universe.

* The spam email helpfully tells me:  Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to, communication, culture, economics, education, finance, law, management, politics, psychology, and society.
