Submission Guidelines 

Authors are invited to submit abstracts of their work for consideration at the conference. Please submit a 2-page single spaced (including text, diagrams, tables and references) abstract of your research study by October 11, 2018.
Abstracts will be evaluated based on their potential research contribution and the ability to stimulate interest and discussion at the conference. If your abstract is accepted for presentation at the conference, it will be published in a Book of Abstracts. The Book of Abstracts contains a brief (300 words) summary of each of the researches to be presented at the conference. Conference on the Digital Economy (CODE) does not take any copyright on this. The purpose of the Book of Abstracts is to circulate your work amongst key practitioners in India. 
Your research study should be sufficiently complete by the time of the conference to enable a stimulating presentation and meaningful discussion. At least one co-author of an accepted abstract for the conference must pre-register on or before November 4, 2018 for its continued inclusion in the programme.
