2nd World Disability & Rehabilitation Conference 2017 Mauritius

  • Conference Call
  • The Inter­na­tional Insti­tute of Knowl­edge Man­age­ment (TIIKM) takes great plea­sure in invit­ing you to the 2nd World Dis­abil­ity & Reha­bil­i­ta­tion Con­fer­ence 2017 (WDRC 2017) sched­uled to be held from 18th20th July 2017 in Mau­ri­tius. In the past years the per­cep­tion towards dis­abil­ity was accounted as a mea­sure­ment for inabil­ity and the prac­tice still is alive in cer­tain regions. This approach has deprived the rights of a per­son who equally deserves a place for sur­vival in the soci­ety by being cor­nered con­sid­er­ing the incom­plete­ness in the fig­ure and due to an absent mind. The igno­rance of this nature has cost the soci­ety at large when deny­ing the ideas pro­posed and or at the least in not pro­vid­ing a stage to voice their say.

    Con­fer­ence Theme: “Inspir­ing Possibilities…Enhancing Oppor­tu­ni­ties for Ability”

    The 2nd World Dis­abil­ity & Reha­bil­i­ta­tion Con­fer­ence 2017 is believed to cre­ate a plat­form to address the pres­ence of the dis­abled and the impor­tance of their exis­tence, cre­ation of hope and will­ing­ness for the same to play a vital role in build­ing up the future. The Con­fer­ence will wit­ness the par­tic­i­pa­tion of aca­d­e­mi­cians, researchers, schol­ars, pro­fes­sion­als, accom­pa­nied by part­ner­ing Uni­ver­si­ties, pro­fes­sional bod­ies and gov­ern­ment offi­cials thus trans­form­ing a sin­gle venue into a global knowl­edge hub.

    All poten­tial authors are warmly encour­aged to con­tribute to the con­fer­ence through sub­mis­sions of their research abstracts, research papers, prac­ti­tion­ers’ papers, pro­fes­sional papers and posters that address themes and top­ics of the con­fer­ence.
