Call for Abstracts

An abstract is a concise version of your research presented in skeletal form, which focuses on the essentials of a larger idea or claim. It should be sufficient enough for reviewers to discern the nature and significance of your research, the fairness in your approach, and the nature of the results or progress to date

Four important elements of an abstract-

  1. The research focus (i.e. statement of the problem(s)/research issue(s) addressed); 
  2. The research methods used (experimental research, case studies, questionnaires, etc.); 
  3. The results/findings of the research; 
  4. The main conclusions and recommendations 

Abstracts are invited on any of the topics mentioned below

  1. Construction Management and Methods
