Workshop on Scholarly Publications


Dissemination of research findings is an essential part of the scientific research process.  Hence, it is of utmost importance for a researcher who is writing a full paper with the aim of publishing in a reputable journal or in a reputable proceeding.  Furthermore, getting a paper published in a reputable peer-reviewed journal or proceeding is an important milestone for researchers.

Through the publication workshop we intend to disseminate knowledge on writing scientific papers and scholarly publications to assist future researchers.  All conference participants are welcome to participate in this workshop.

Date: 20th September 2019
Time: 3.50 p.m – 5.30 p.m

Panel Discussion on


Community Empowerment through Research and Innovation

The global crisis has made it clear that most of the challenges we face today have taken on an increasingly social dimension. Among the most prominent are the fight against unemployment, ageing and climate change. Increasing unemployment is often linked to increased crime and social exclusion, with long-lasting consequences not only for those losing their jobs, but also for their children who have fewer opportunities in society.

At a time when resources are limited, new solutions must be found. Community empowerment is needed not only for involving communities in decision-making, but also implies community ownership, advocacy, and action that explicitly aim to achieve social and political change. Communities around the world have the right to excellent research support and that a participatory research process can support many aspects of community organizing and advocacy campaigns to achieve access to basic needs, healthy environments, a thriving economy, and social justice.

This panel offers you an opportunity to learn from them, exchange your own ideas and participate in dialog with the panelists and international audience.
