Contributed Papers


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

  • 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) with ISBN subject to a page limitation. The deadline for submission of complete papers for consideration for the proceeding is February 15, 2015. Authors are not required to submit complete papers unless they are submitting for publication in the proceedings.
