All papers will be sent to National seminar for compilation and record.

Out of the papers presented, each region will nominate one speaker for the national seminar. The national seminar will have two to three additional speakers to present their papers. National seminar will select two papers for sending to the international seminar. Authors of these papers shall get some financial support to travel and present their papers.
