5. Can the paper be presented without participating in the conference?

In general, we do not encourage this practice. One of the primary objectives of attending academic research conferences is to meet and connect with academicians/leading researchers/industry practitioners/institutional heads/decision-makers of funding agencies from different parts of the world. By attending conferences, you would keep abreast of contemporary research works in different disciplines including inter-disciplinary research. Conferences provide great opportunities to know the emerging trends and the funding opportunities available for academic community. However, in case the delegate has some practical issues or difficulties to attend the conference in person, for instance, difficulties in obtaining visas, you may present your paper in-absentia.

6. Who will present my paper ‘In-absentia’?

Either the Conference Chair or Conference Director or any other senior professors will present your paper ‘In-absentia’. Please note that on presenting your paper in-absentia, you would get a certificate to that effect. A scanned copy of the certificate will be emailed to you followed by a hard copy of the certificate to your mailing address.

7. I want the abstract of my research paper to be published in the conference proceedings and not the full paper. Is it possible?

Yes. If you would like to publish only the abstract, you may do so. In such cases, please be informed that your abstract alone will be published in the conference proceedings. You may also opt not to publish your abstract in the conference proceedings.

8. I would like to pay the conference ‘registration fee’ on the spot. Is it possible?

No. Delegates should remit the conference registration fee on or before the deadline. However, if you are a delegate from Iran, the conference committee permits Iranian Delegates to pay the fee on the spot provided you submit your confirmed flight ticket and hotel booking details, in advance. On confirmation by the conference chair or director, you can pay the conference registration fee on the spot.
