Considered the item of proposing to the General B6ody of ICA the names of the Sectional Chairpersons and Co-Chairpersons for the Seminar and Four Technical Sessions. It was felt by the EC that there is considerable scope for qualitatively strengthening the academic and professional inputs of the Technical and Seminar sessions. It was further felt that this can be possible only when persons of outstanding academic merit with adequate specialization in the area of technical subjects meant for Seminar/Technical sessions are requested to Chair such sessions. To ensure a proper direction and guidelines to the contributors, it was further recommended by the EC that the Chairmen for Technical/Seminar sessions should prepare a Status paper on the Subject of theme of Technical/Seminar Sessions highlighting the basic fundamental dimensions, ramifications, issues, problems and the areas which need to be covered by the contributors of the paper. Such a Status Paper should be sent latest by 15th Feb. of each Year to the office of the Managing Editor who will ensure that all such Status Papers are published in the Jan-March issue of the Indian Journal of Commerce for the benefit of the contributors who intend to submit their papers for the Annual Conference. The last date for the submission of papers for the Annual Conference shall be two months before the proposed dates of the Annual Conference. It was further recommended that the papers received for the Conference shall be categorised by the respective Chairperson into three categories :
(A) Top ten papers in view of academic and professional contents. These papers are to be presented in detail in the Sessions. Out of these papers five to seven papers shall be published in the Journal.
(B) Papers whose abstract shall be permitted to be presented in the Technical/Seminar Session.
(C) Papers which shall be deemed to have been read. The responsibility of ensuring that above mentioned parameters are
observed by the Chairpersons/Co-chairpersons of the Sessions lies with the Managing Editor of the Indian Journal of Commerce.
