National Conference on Agriculture and Rural Management: Prospects and Emerging Issues


Dear Sir/ Ma'am,

It is my great honor to intimate you about the National Conference on "AGRICULTURE AND RURAL MANAGEMENT: PROSPECTS AND EMERGING ISSUES" organized by St Xavier's College, Jaipur in association with The Indian Econometric Society (TIES) during November 3-4, 2017.  We humbly invite you, your colleagues and students on behalf of the Organizing Committee in the conference.

India has been predominantly an agriculture-based economy, where more than half of its workforce depends on agriculture for their living. While the share of agriculture in gross domestic product has substantially declined over the years, a similar but rather slow decline has been seen in dependence of workforce on the agricultural sector, resulting in a slow growth in the incomes of those dependent on agriculture for their livelihoods. The present National level conference aims to find out solutions to augment India's national efforts to address the issues about agriculture and rural sector through holistic and multi-sectoral approaches. The conference objective is to provide a platform for a cross section of researchers with varied disciplines contributing applied and analytical papers, which need not necessarily, include econometric modeling.  The aim of the conference is also to connect thoughts and experiences on Agriculture & Rural Development and to publish the selected papers in an edited volume.

The Conference will feature presentations, invited lectures, discussions and knowledge sessions on the key developments in the field of Agriculture and Rural Development.



Important Dates:

Submission of Full Paper: September 20, 2017

Intimation of acceptance: October 15, 2017

Deadline for Registration: October 20, 2017

Submission at: ecodept.xaviersjpr@gmail.com

The Asian Conference on Education and International Development 2018

Dear Colleague,

We invite your participation in The Asian Conference for Education and International Development 2018 (ACEID2018). Every year, we strive to explore the nexus between educational policies, practices and theories, along with development of the global world towards sustainability and positive change. This year's conference theme is "Surviving and Thriving: Education in Times of Change". Whether we are looking at how education has changed or will change, or how education has changed or will change us, we understand that change affects us all. As administrators, teacher educators, teachers, educational policy leaders, students or community members, we all come face-to-face with change, often on a daily basis.

We know that change is not only about test scores or proficiency going up; it is also about lasting change in one's life and life choices, and, looking beyond ourselves as individuals, in the larger society that we live in. Thus, we invite you to contribute to this 2018 conference on educating for positive change in our lives and in the world at large. At the conference, we hope to examine change in ways that are important to us as individuals, as well as the challenges, complexities and constraints of educating for change. Our goal is to offer wide-ranging conversations from a multitude of disciplines, including all areas of education, community development, the arts and business.

Please join us to help unpack how to educate for change, to share your research, to contribute to international development, and to engage in important conversations around social sustainability in an ever-changing world.

We hope to see you in Kobe, March 26–28, 2018.

Our best regards,

– The ACEID2018 Organising Committee
