  • Participate in our conference and publish your research directly through the conference proceedings and journals. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get your work out there!

All accepted papers will be peer reviewed and published in the conference proceeding to promote the prominent (and emerging) voices within your field of research.

Best Paper Awards

APIAR recognises outstanding contributions to research. There are four Best Papers awards for four 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, Education, ICT 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.
