CfP: Managing of the Non-profit sector, 23-24.11.2002, Nicosia (North Cyprus)
- Dear Colleagues,
We are pleased to announce that the First International Symposium on "Managing of the Non-profit sector" will be held on 23-24 November 2002, in Nicosia, North Cyprus. The aim of the symposium is to bring academicians, practitioners and experts to discuss the management of nonprofit sector. The symposium will provide participants with the opportunity to explore different nonprofit sector experiences in depth with the participants from other parts of the world.
The details concerning the participation and registration to the program can be found on line on the Management Centers web-site at |www.mancentre.org|.
The symposium topic is managing the nonprofit sector, a topic which is becoming increasingly popular. Participants are not confined to specific topics but rather they are free to choose to submit a proposal with any topic relevant to the field. This general title aspires to enable participants to come with different ideas that might be highly thought-provoking.
The symposium will be conducted in English. The deadline for abstracts, no more than hundred words, is decided to be 20th September 2002. The abstract format is available online. Each participant is expected to submit a CV together with an abstract.
The abstracts will be evaluated by the Scientific Committee on the basis of their academic value and topic in mid-October. The authors whose abstracts are accepted will be eligible to make presentations in November at the symposium. The presentations can be conducted by authors and/or co-authors. For each presentation 20 minutes will be allocated. Each presentation will be followed by 10-minute discussion.
Workshops as inseparable parts of any symposium intend to encourage the audience to raise their questions on the subject of presentations. The workshops will not be limited only to the presentation topics but will also provide the audience with the opportunity to bring up various topics related to the nonprofit sector as well. The workshops will last around two hours.
Abstracts and CVs are due 20 September 2002. Accepted abstracts will be announced on 15 October 2002. Registration deadline is set as 30 October 2002 and the symposium will be held on 23-24 November 2002.
This symposium is organized by the Management Centre with the generous contributions of United Nations Office for Project Services and support of the British Council.
Registration and participation is free of charge. The participants with accepted papers are only expected to pay their travel expenses to the symposium and the Centre will provide modest accommodation between 22-25 November 2002 (3 nights and two days).
We are eagerly looking forward to hearing from you,
Cengiz Pinar (Prof.)
Head of the Scientific Committee
