The 2018 International Multi-Disciplinary Conference Knowledge Sharing and Innovation Competitiveness for Responsive and Sustainable Development Host: Zambia Research and Development Centre – Information and Communications University Date: 22 – 24 August, 2018 Venue:  Radisson Blu hotel, Lusaka, Zambia

The First International Multi-Disciplinary Conference on “Knowledge Sharing and Innovation Competitiveness for Responsive and Sustainable Development” will bring together researchers, scholars, innovators and entrepreneurs from international and local universities and industry to showcase research and innovations.

This is an exceptional platform for researchers/academics/innovators/scientists/practitioners to discuss contemporary phenomena shaping human development from multiple vantage points. Many topics of the multi-disciplinary nature as a response to everyday challenges faced in both developing and developed world contexts will be discussed.

This conference will also provide an opportunity for graduating students to publish their Bachelors’, Masters’ and PhD research works (research papers), as journal publication is a prerequisite for graduation under the new academic standards. Encouraging tertiary and vocational institutions in research and innovation is a great recipe for a competitive world, and Zambia should take a centre stage in this cause.

Papers submitted to this conference will go through a Double-blinded review process with final proceedings with ISBN indexed in Google Scholar, Scopus and Thomson Reuters.
