1. Does the ‘Conference Fee’ include hotel accommodation also?

No. The ‘conference fee’ includes two continental lunches, four coffee breaks, conference proceedings in a CD, participation certificate, free publications of paper in one of our journals, local Chennai City tour and a folder. Hotel accommodation will be arranged by the delegates, on their own.

2. Where shall we stay in Chennai? Can you suggest a ‘budget hotel’ near the conference venue?

Located in the heart of Chennai, Hotel Royal Regency is within a 10-minute walk of Ripon Building and St. Andrew's Kirk. You can access the below link to get details of hotels near the conference venue – Click Here A google search or www.hotels.com would be quite helpful to identify a good hotel based on your budget.

3. Do you provide any funding support to the participants?

Sorry! We do not have provisions to make any funding support to the participants. Participants have to make their own funding arrangements to attend the conference.

4. Do I need a visa to visit India?

Visitors to India must obtain a visa from an Indian diplomatic mission unless they come from one of the visa-exempt countries or a country whose citizens may obtain a visa online. Kindly access the below link for Visa Policy of India - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_policy_of_India.

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 delegates from different parts of the world to network and know contemporary research works in different disciplines. Conferences provide great opportunities to know the emerging trends and the funding opportunities available. Also, it helps in fostering good relationship with fellow delegates so that joint and inter-disciplinary research works can be undertaken.
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. No problem.

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’. You will get a certificate clearly mentioning that your paper was presented in-absentia.

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, your abstract alone will be published 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. All other delegates will pay their conference registration fee on or before the deadlines as mentioned in the conference website.

9. In which journal will my paper be published?

We publish six journals and they are available in our website i.e., www.globalbizresearch.org. In general, the authors will suggest the journal in which their paper should be published. However, you may also request us to suggest the journal from our publications. Based on the area of the paper, we would publish it in our journals provided you have improved the paper based on the feedback/suggestions/comments given by the anonymous reviewers.

10. Can I directly opt for publishing the paper without presenting the paper at the conference or without participation?

Yes. In such cases, you will pay only the publication fee of US$100.
