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.

About Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia is Located just north of the equator, Malaysia borders Thailand, Indonesia and Brunei, and has maritime boundaries with Indonesia, Singapore and the Philippines. Malaysia’s population is around 30.573 million in at present. Malaysia is a bubbling, bustling melting pot of races and religions where Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other ethnic groups live together in peace and harmony. Multiculturalism has not only made Malaysia a gastronomical paradise, it has also made Malaysia home to hundreds of colorful festivals. Malaysians love celebrating and socializing; the people are warm and friendly. Kuala Lumpur is the federal capital and most populous city in Malaysia. There are number of frequent flights to and from all major international airports of the world.

Considered the ‘heart and soul’ of Malaysia is the capital city of Kuala Lumpur, fondly referred to as KL by most regular visitors. The city has managed to preserve its rich history, having once been a tin-mining centre in the 1850s. KL aptly fits the title of ‘Malaysia: Truly Asia’ with its Asian cyber city, towering hi-tech buildings, skyscrapers, historic temples and mosques, shopping malls and glitzy hotels. The minute you enter the vivacious city you are greeted with a futuristic vibe, reflecting the economic boom of the sovereign nation-state.

The gleaming Petronas Twin Towers represent the rich culture of Malaysia with its museums, shops and eateries, while the line of stalls offering products of every description from leather, handicrafts, artistry to the customary ‘Dunhill’ watches attract locals and tourists alike looking for worthy bargains. The bustling Chinatown will leave you spoilt for choice with its attractive goods, while the National Museum with its interesting collections and beautiful Batu Caves will give you a glimpse of Kuala Lumpur’s cultural diversity. With all these attractions and many more, Kuala Lumpur is an alluring example of where old meets new, and vintage meets contemporary.

Much like its food, the people lend the city a distinct culture that sets it apart from other Asian cities. Wherever you go, you can hear the breathless chatter of ethnic Malays, Chinese Muslims, Indians and Punjabis. English is widely spoken throughout the city.

Let your hair down at a ritzy lounge, shop all day at one of the magnificent malls or test your bargaining skills at the quaint cluster of makeshift shops in the heart of the city. There is no end to the things you can do here. Climb the giddying heights of the Menara Kuala Lumpur Observation Deck after snacking on some local specialties in Petaling Street. The view encapsulates the feel of one of the greatest cities in Asia, and there is no denying it.

Shopping: From high-end fashion in the cool comfort of modern shopping malls, to the thrill of picking up antiques and curios in local markets, Kuala Lumpur offers a fun-filled shopping experience. Test your bargaining skills at the night markets where you can buy cheap knock-off 'Rollexx Watches' and 'Praada Bags'. The once-a-year Mega Sale Carnival is the icing on the cake, with tempting discounts and promotions to woo shoppers.

Breathtaking Views: Breathe in the surrounding beauty of this futuristic city from the top of the Petronas Twin Towers and Menara Kuala Lumpur Observation Deck.

Food: The choice of cuisines available in Kuala Lumpur speaks volumes about the rich cultural heritage of Malaysia’s capital city. From ubiquitous road-side stalls to fine dining, the city offers Chinese, Indian, Continental, Malaysian and Japanese cuisine.

Rich Cultural Heritage: Kuala Lumpur plays host to colourful festivals and cultural celebrations that flourish all year round. The city’s multi-ethnic population observes their religious, cultural and national celebrations in an atmosphere of mutual respect and tolerance.

Great interaction and professional networking took place on every occasion. You can take advantage of these benefits by participating in a conference that will assist you to enhance your research career.

Privacy Statement

The primary purpose of collecting the personal information requested on this form is to process your registration. In registering for this event, relevant details may be incorporated into a delegate list for the benefit of all delegates (name, email and organisation only) and may be made available to parties directly related to this event.


Registration fees DO NOT include insurance of any kind. It is strongly recommended that all delegates arrange their own travel and medical insurance prior to attending the event. The insurance policy should include loss of airfares for any reason; medical expenses; loss or damage to personal property; and any additional expenses and repatriation, should travel arrangements alter.

Role of a Session Chair

  1. Introduction

    At the start of the session, briefly introduce yourself and explain the timing system to the audience, and as often during the session as you think necessary.

  2. Start on Time

    Start the session on time - announce the first presenter and the name of the paper, and start the timer.

  3. Check the Microphone

    If a microphone has been provided, then please ensure that this is working.

  4. Stick to the Schedule

    Please adhere to the time schedule listed in the schedule so that simultaneous sessions are as closely synchronized as possible. Many attendees move from session to session in order to hear specific presentations.

  5. Allotted Times

    The normal allotted time for every presentation is 20 minutes (15 minutes to present; 5 minutes for Q & A). During the 15 minutes presentation time, after the first 12 minutes there will be one bell just to alert the presenter that only three minutes are left and then after 15 minutes the final bell will be rung.

    Presenters must be asked to stop when their allotted time is up in a courteous but firm manner. Keep in mind that the session must end on time, and that the last speaker has just as much right to an audience as does the first speaker.

  6. Absent Presenter(s)
    Should a presenter fail to appear, call the next presenter and so on. 

  7. Session Problems

    If any problems arise that you are unable to handle while continuing to chair the session, either go, or immediately send, someone to the registration desk to alert the Meetings Manager of the problem.
