Can authors of co-authored papers apply for travel bursary?

If a paper is co-authored by two or more authors, all of them can apply for the bursary. Each author will have to individually upload their bursary application as a separate Word or PDF file while submitting the abstract. Bursary documents which have not been attached to the abstract submission system along will not be considered.

However, the bursary applications go through an extensive competitive process, and no more than one author for one paper will be offered a bursary.

I am unsure about the registration fee I have to pay. How do I decide?

The registration fee for Masters or PhD students is €20. All others (faculty members of universities, postdoctoral fellows, individual researchers as well as activists) have to pay the registration fee of €50.

I am an Independent Scholar/Researcher. What is the registration fee I have to pay?

All faculty members of universities, postdoctoral fellows, individual researchers and activists have to pay the registration fee of €50.

I am a Masters student. Can I send my abstract for consideration?

The conference is primarily aimed at doctoral students, independent researchers and faculty members of universities. However, Masters students are welcome to submit their abstracts. The decision on the acceptance of abstracts will be based solely on the merit of the abstracts.

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher. Can I apply for travel bursary?

The Ireland India Institute will provide a limited number of bursaries only to doctoral students enrolled in a university located in South Asia. If you are a postdoctoral scholar or a doctoral scholar enrolled in a university elsewhere, you cannot apply for this bursary.

I missed the deadline for registration. Is there any way I can still attend the conference?

The deadline for registration is final, unless an extension is decided by the Organizing Committee and announced on the III website.

The registration process is not accepting my debit card. What do I do?

Previous participants from South Asia have sometimes found it difficult to register using a Debit Card. If this happens to you, we suggest using a Credit Card as an alternative. If the issue is still not resolved, please mail us at india@dcu.ie.

I need a letter from the organisers for visa purposes. Who do I contact?

Once you have submitted your abstract, please wait for further communication from the conference organisers. A letter of invitation for visa purposes will be provided once your paper has been accepted and you have registered as a participant by paying the registration fee.

Will the conference proceedings be published?

Conference participants who are presenting their papers at the 2020 Conference and are interested in publishing it in a future issue of the Critical South Asian Studies are welcome to submit their papers for peer review. They are requested to follow the submission guidelines here.

Does the Ireland India Institute arrange transport and accommodation for the participants of the conference?

The Institute will not be able to arrange for transport or accommodation for any of the participants. However, a list of hostels and hotels close to the conference venue will be shared with registered participants at a later date.

I am a MA/PhD student. Can I apply for bursary?

The bursaries are primarily reserved for doctoral students registered in universities located in South Asia. However, we welcome abstracts and bursary applications from MA students as well. Exceptional submissions will be considered for bursary.
