CINEC International Research Symposium (CIRS) 2023

CINEC International Research Symposium (CIRS) 2023 of CINEC Campus, Malabe, Sri Lanka provides a unique platform for undergraduates, and esteemed scholars and researchers across the globe to present and share their valuable insights, latest research findings, projects and ideas. This symposium is held annually maintaining the standards of a formal research symposium, targeting academic excellence and aiming to create an intellectually stimulating environment that encourages the exchange of ideas, diverse perspectives, and groundbreaking discoveries. This research symposium is an opportunity for aspiring researchers and academics to cultivate connections across borders, and to gain awareness of the research interests of their particular fields.

This further assists the development of the undergraduates’ academic career.

The main theme of this research symposium is “Industry, Innovation and Inclusion: The 21st Century Way Forward.” Based on this main theme, the symposium consists of sub themes/ faculty tracks specific for each faculty of the campus. We call for papers from a wide range of disciplines including Engineering, Maritime Sciences, Aviation, Health Sciences, Humanities and Education.

CIRS 2023 will foster the presence of renowned academics and scholars as honorable speakers at the symposium. In addition to the main program, the symposium includes keynote speeches, plenary sessions and poster presentations. The symposium proceedings and selected research abstracts will be later published in the CINEC Symposium Proceedings. Outstanding research presented at the CINEC Symposium will be considered for publication in the CINEC Academic Journal. Participation in CIRS 2023 is highly encouraged as it will empower undergraduates and researchers to contribute to the global research landscape and to be recognized as future pioneers in their respective fields.
