Participants intending to present a paper in the Congress should upload (electronically) two-page extended abstract composed of abstract, research aim, brief literature survey, problem formulation, solution methodology and significant conclusions as per the format available in the ISTAM website http://istam.iitkgp.ac.in. Based on reviewer's recommendation, communication will be sent to the participants. Once the extended abstract is accepted for presentation, the participant is required to submit electronically either the brief abstract (limited to 200 words) or the full length paper (limited to twelve pages), as per the format (click here) available in the ISTAM website, in case the participant wishes to publish it in the e-proceedings of the conference, which is subject to the peer review process.
Three awards, one each, in the sections: 1. Fluid Mechanics, 2. Solid Mechanics, and 3. Experimental Techniques or Computational Methods will be given to researchers of age 30 years or below for presenting outstanding research work at the Congress. The work should be done independently by the researcher with no co-author(s). The author who would like to be considered for the “Young Scientist” award is requested to mention it on the top of the Abstract by writing “PAPER FOR THE YOUNG SCIENTIST AWARD” and check the tick mark on “YOUNG SCIENTIST AWARD” while you are submitting it on the website http://istam.iitkgp.ac.in. The award paper must be presented personally by the author during the Award Session of the Congress. The Award Session will be held only if sufficient number of papers are received in each category.
