Submissions

All submissions should be made electronically via EasyChair. It is mandatory that at least one author of all accepted papers register for, and present the paper at, the conference. As a reminder, papers are reviewed following a double-blind process; reviewers will not know who authored the papers, nor will authors know the names of their reviewers.

Extended Abstract

Prepare and submit an electronic document of Microsoft Word on extended abstract of your paper with a text of up to 1500 words (approximately 3 pages) for review; references do not count against the word limit. [Please note that submissions with text longer than 1500 words will not be reviewed]. The document should clearly state your research question, objective, methodology (not applicable for nonempirical papers), a summary of findings, and key contributions to the theory and the practice.

Remove the author identifying information from the document’s file properties. In Word, this can be done by using/clicking on the “Properties” feature (use Word’s Help resource for further details on how to use it). To assure a blind review, authors must avoid revealing their identities in the body or reference section of the paper. Further, do not include a front-page with author-identifying information. At the time of submission via EasyChair, the submitter will be asked to provide complete contact information for all authors including name, mailing address, phone number, and email. Please use the following link for submitting the electronic document (Mention link). Confirmation that your paper was submitted successfully will be sent via email to the submitter.

The last date for submission of abstracts is 25th October 2021.

Full Paper

Authors who are interested to participate in Best Paper Award and Best Paper Student Award, are requested to submit full papers for the review process. A paper is eligible for the best paper student award if the first author is a full-time student. This must be indicated in the submission process. Each author on each of the selected papers will receive a certificate or plaque with the name of the award, the name of the paper, and the names of the authors of the paper, to be awarded at the Conference.

While submitting the paper, authors must declare that the paper has not been published, under consideration for publication, or accepted for publication anywhere. Prepare and submit an electronic document of Microsoft Word of your paper with a text of up to 8000 words, with an abstract of 250 words, and 5 keywords. Copyrighted materials, including those taken from any website, should be identified, and the copyright holder’s explicit permission to reproduce it must be submitted separately. No changes will be allowed in the paper title, abstract, and authorship after the submission.

The last date for submission of the full paper is 25th October 2021.
