Fourth International Conference on Karachi (November 2016 - Karachi, Pakistan)

This is a call for Papers for the 4th International Conference on Karachi 2016, arranged by its patron organization the Karachi Conference Foundation (KCF).

The conference is scheduled to be held in November 2016 (exact dates TBD).

We invite submission of papers on all subjects and themes concerned with the city of Karachi. The conference aims to have a multidisciplinary approach, and seeks to showcase research and scholarship on all themes and subjects related to Karachi. KCF would like to especially encourage applicants who had previously submitted abstracts to resubmit, as the organization committee shall re-consider any theme/subject that could not be presented due to limitations of space in previous Karachi Conference programmes.

Interested participants are invited to submit abstracts of 300 – 500 words to abstracts@karachiconference.com by 30th August 2016. The KCF Abstracts Committee will short-list from the abstracts received by the deadline.
