FAQ

  1. How do I submit an abstract to the GPSRC 2017?

  2. I want to present my work in some other conference and/or I want to submit it to a journal. Can I still submit an abstract to the GPSRC 2017?
    Yes. Since GPSRC would not be publishing any kind of proceedings, you can still submit the abstract to the GPSRC 2017, and present it later to any professional conference or journal of your choice.
     
  3. I have already presented my work in some other conference and/or I have submitted it to a journal. Can I still submit an abstract to the GPSRC 2017? 
    Yes, you can definitely submit an abstract for the GPSRC 2017 even if you have already presented it elsewhere or submitted to a journal.
     
  4. Can I submit an ongoing research to the GPSRC 2017?
    Yes, it is absolutely fine to present an ongoing work. However, please make sure that the abstract is properly structured as per the submission guidelines. For instance, it would be expected that the abstract would have few words on conclusion and future work, even if it comprises of an ongoing research. 
     
  5. While submitting an abstract, each time I add an author, the name and department of previously added author(s) except the first author go blank. What should I do?
