Eligibility: The application has to be forwarded by the guide of the postgraduate. It is mandatory for the postgraduate to himself/ herself present the paper. Pre-registration for the conference will be mandatory for the postgraduate whose abstract is selected for this session. 

Please note that the thesis or any part of the thesis should not have been published or presented in any conference before the last date of abstract submission (September 30, 2021).
