Submissions by non-academic institutions

Kindly note that there has been a revision in our submission policies and we will only be accepting proposals from non- academic institutions, who are track sponsors.

If a non- academic institution would like to present a paper at our conferences, they may do so through sponsorship of a whole session (3 presentation slots) at our conferences.

In this instance, if you would like to present a paper under Track 4, you may wish to consider a sponsorship for a session under Track 4 only.

Multiple submissions by academic institutions

All proposers of the said event are to abide to the following

  • Each approved presenter will only be scheduled to a single presentation slot in the program
  • Each institution is allowed up to three approved presentation slots, of which are to contain three different presenters.

The above policy has been put in place to ensure the delivery of a varied informative and well-tailored presentations by diverse prominent presenters of the global higher education sector.
