The Second World Universities Forum will be held in Mumbai, India, 15-17 January 2009.
The World Universities Forum was created in the belief that academe must better engage today’s most crucial questions, and that higher education itself must be included as part of the wider discussion of global change. The Forum encourages the participation of university executives, administrators, scholars and research students, as well as journalists, policy makers, business and political leaders, and others who understand that the importance of the university extends well beyond campus.
All presenters may choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed Journal of the World Universities Forum. If you are unable to attend the Forum in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for review and possible publication in the Journal, and provide access to the online edition of the Journal.
The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 08 May 2008. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks of submission. Full details of the Conference, including an online proposal submission form, are to be found at the Conference website – http://UniversitiesForum.com
