Contributed Papers


Scholars interested in presenting papers are requested to follow the guidelines below:

  • A brief abstract (not exceeding 100 words) should be submitted online by November 15, 2013. The abstract should ideally be submitted by the author who intends to make presentation at the conference.

  • There is a cap of a maximum two abstracts from one author. By submitting an abstract, the author makes a good faith commitment to present his/her paper at the conference.

  • The abstract should clearly indicate the contribution made by the paper to the existing body of knowledge.

  • Names of authors, their addresses (postal and e-mail), and phone/fax numbers should also be indicated. Each abstract should have at least three keywords.

  • Notification of accepted papers will be sent within two weeks of receipt of the abstract. All abstracts will be peer-reviewed. Abstracts written in poor style, with grammatical problems, longer than 100 words, or that do not clearly indicate the contribution made to the body of knowledge cannot be accepted.

  • Papers adhering to prescribed requirements will be eligible for publication in the conference proceedings (in CD-ROM) subject to a page limitation. The proceedings will have an ISBN. The deadline for submission of complete papers for consideration for the proceeding is extended to November 25, 2013. Full paper can be accepted by December 7 with a late fee of Rs. 1,000. Authors are not required to submit complete papers unless they are submitting for publication in the proceedings.

  • After the conference, a Call for Papers will be sent to all contributors soliciting their papers for publication in a printed book form and will bear an ISBN. The papers will be selected on the basis of originality and significance of research contribution.

  • One of the authors must pre-register for the conference within seven days of acceptance of paper to ensure inclusion of the paper in the conference program. Without pre-registration, papers cannot be included in the conference program. This is done to minimize no-shows at the conference.
