SUBJECT: Call for Papers: The 2015 ConExtS - Conference on Extension Services
The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Extension (OVCRE) will be conducting the 2015 UPLB ConExtS - Conference on Extension Services with the theme "Nurturing the Tradition of Distinctive Excellence Through Extension: UPLB's Contribution for a Globally Competitive Philippines" on 10 September 2015 (Thursday). Venue will be announced later on.
The event aims to present and honor the great extension endeavours of the different colleges and units of the university. This year, the conference will showcase the different extension services and modalities provided by UPLB. Through time, the colleges and units have developed their own brand of extension programs and activities that emphasize the strength of their respective fields and that benefit different types of clients. It is the goal of the conference to capture these unique extension experiences throughout UPLB.
We invite all colleges and units to submit at most two (2) full papers of their best extension program/services, detailing the service or technology, extension methods, profile and location of beneficiaries, impacts, awards and recognitions, and publications, among others. A committee will select the best papers among the entries. OVCRE will provide assistance in journal matching and publication to the awardees.
The deadline of submission of papers is on 10 August 2015 (Monday). Kindly refer to the attached guidelines for submission. For inquiries, you may call Dr. Virginia B. Camarinta or Ms. Ailene M. Florece of OVCRE at 536-2354.
Thank you for your usual support and cooperation.
