Best Paper Awards

APIAR recognises outstanding contributions to research. There are two Best Papers awards for two streams. Best Papers are judged both on the merits of the written document and on the quality of their presentation at the conference. The awards serve to acknowledge the authors who receive them as leading researchers in Business Studies and Social Sciences. The awards also provide an incentive to authors to produce high-quality papers and present them in a lucid and compelling manner.

APIAR Best Paper Award recipients are selected through a two-prong process. The first step is a review of the full-length papers accepted for the conference. Review committee members of the conference rank these papers according to quality, relevance and originality, to determine the finalists for each award category. While selection as a finalist for an APIAR Best Paper Award is a notable achievement in itself, winners are then chosen from the finalists, according to the quality of their presentations. Presentation quality is judged according to the audience feedback collected at the conference.

About Bali

Bali is both an island and a province of Indonesia. The island is just south of the equator and is home to just over 4 million people. Surrounded by a coral reef, Bali is a lush, green island with some of the most beautiful white and black sand beaches in the world. The island is about 153 km from east to west and 112 km from north to south. The central mountains include an active volcano, Mount Agung. Bali’s ample rainfall and fertile soil create highly productive coffee, rice and vegetable crops.

Tourism is very important to Bali. Being so close to the equator, the climate is fairly stable all year. Daytime temperatures range from 20 to 33 degrees Centigrade in the lower altitudes. In the mountains, the temperatures are somewhat cooler. Most tourism is focused in the southern part of the island near beaches and larger towns. World-class hotels maintain a 65% occupancy rating but during the peak season, some hotels are fully booked. In 2012 Bali had over 2.8 million foreign and 5 million domestic tourist visits. The excellent beaches, international and local restaurants, and the friendliness of the people attract tourists to this beautiful island.

Tourists have a wide range of activities from which to choose. Many historic sites, nature trails, parks and gardens are available for exploring. Numerous day tours are available for visitors to explore the nature and local culture. These tours include escorted driving tours and eco-cycling throughout the island for the adventurous traveler. Popular attractions include Waterbom Bali (a water park), Sekumpul Waterfalls, Mayong Village Tracking (hiking trails), the Tanah Lot Temple, and Tirta Gangga. Many cultural experiences are also available for tourists. The Bali Theater and International Cooking Classes are very popular with international and regional visitors.

Sponsorship

Asia-Pacific Institute of Advanced Research (APIAR) always welcomes any kind of sponsorship. APIAR believes that it is a great opportunity for sponsors to enhance their visibility and to reach academics, researchers, consultants and members of the business community from around the world. In our second conference ‘1st International Conference on Advanced Business and Social Sciences (ICABSS-2016) ’ we are expecting delegates from around ten countries. APIAR strongly encourages potential sponsors to participate in ICABSS-2016 for the excellent exposure their organisations will receive. The number of contributions necessary to become a sponsor is negotiable.
