  1. 13) I did not receive any acknowledgement from the bank regarding the registration payment. How can we know the payment is received at IIMK?

Please wait for 7 days to receive acknowledgment of payment towards registration. If you do not receive the acknowledgment even after 7 days, you may send us an email with the payment reference and we will confirm to you the status of your registration.

  1. 14) How were the manuscript decisions taken?

A panel of Pan-IIM reviewers were engaged. Each manuscript underwent double blind review by two reviewers who gave recommendations to accept as presentation, accept as poster or reject.

Theme: Globalizing Indian Thought

The main theme of the conference is Globalizing Indian Thought. This encompasses the influencing of international perspectives through insights found in Indian realities as well as enhancing Indian thought leadership through engagement with international best practices. Such a two-way exchange of ideas between Indian and international researchers will take the theme of the first conference (Emerging Issues in Indian Management) to its logical next level.
