Call for Papers
The first Global Concave of Young Scholars of Indian Education presents a unique opportunity for young scholars (doctoral and post-doctoral researchers and early-career faculty) working on any aspect of Indian education in universities and research institutes in India and abroad to come together, to share and to showcase their research, to network and to publish across boundaries of nations and disciplines. The young scholars will also have the benefit of critique and advice from senior, renowned scholars who shall be invited to give special lectures, to comment on the current status of educational research, to suggest directions for future research, and to discuss the selected papers. Those under 35 years of age are particularly encouraged to apply.

Submission of Proposals and Papers
Given the wide canvas of research on Indian education, the theme for the conclave is open-ended. Papers are invited on any aspect of Indian education. The papers may explore theoretical and ideological orientations, empirical realities, issues of method, design and disciplinary boundaries. They could focus exclusively on Indian education or present comparisons with other countries. In the first instance, abstracts of 300-500 words (including statement of the problem, research strategy and findings) along with contact information, designation, institutional affiliation, disciplinary background and one page CV should be submitted by email to nuepa.conclave@nuepa.org and nuepa.conclave@gmail.com by 25 August 2010. Successful candidates shall be informed by 15 September 2010. Full research papers shall be solicited from the successful candidates by 15 November 2010. All abstract and paper submissions should be formatted in Times New Roman font, size 12, and spaced 1.5 lines. Both abstracts and papers shall be subject to a process of peer review. Papers that lend themselves to publication will be selected for submission as a special issue in an internationally reputed peer-reviewed journal.

Financial Support
A limited number of bursaries towards travel and accommodation expenses will also be provided. Those interested in availing of the bursaries are requested to apply for the same along with their full paper. Those being awarded bursaries shall be informed by 30 November 2010. However, all candidates are advised to explore alternate funding arrangements as it may not be possible to accommodate all the requests for bursaries.
