The 2018 International Multi-Disciplinary Conference
Theme: ‘Pursuing Innovation Frontiers for Contemporary Global Knowledge Citizenship’
Venue: Radisson Blue Hotel, Lusaka Zambia
Conference dates: 29 – 31st August 2018

Call for participation
Innovation and knowledge are two entities steadily positioning themselves as the engine of any meaningful socio-economic and cultural endeavor. Innovation is brought about by pursuing blue oceans with a goal of improving human life or in pursuit of solutions to known human problems. The end result of innovation is a contribution to the body of knowledge in any given field of inquiry. Therefore, it can arguably be posited that innovation sharing is one of the key ingredients to a contemporary knowledge citizenship. Putting innovation in the public domain enables other experts to add their perspective to the innovation so that eventually the innovation logically and coherently dovetails to the universal and contextual setting of societal needs. Further, radical innovation brilliance is a cornerstone for any developmental state.

Perfecting on the lessons learnt on the 2017 IMDC, the 2018 IMDC aims to accord chance and international platform to everyone intending to showcase their innovations (artifact development or deployment and knowledge innovation) in different fields for the advancement of humanity. The conference provides an excellent opportunity for your work to receive that global expert touch given the multi-dimensionality in the different fields of inquiry. We expect over 16 countries to attend the conference.

Themes to be covered include any aspects of the major themes presented below. Please note that this list is collectively exhaustive in terms of field of inquiry – therefore you may literally submit any type of scientific research papers:
