Euroscicon is fake.

It's on Beall's list Beall says avoid Scicon

And he's not the only one: Euroscicon is part of the notorious OMICS group

Recently i was tasked by my Principal to organize for an academic conference where i expect academic staff within and without to participate in paper presentation. One of my first assignment was to think through possible theme and subtheme, i have also organised for a workshop on capacity building. Just wondering if this is predatory in nature? We are a national Polytechnic in Kenya. Advise
