SPARK 2023

Symposium on Physics: Advances in Research and Knowledge

Full Paper Submission Deadline: 25th December, 2023
The Call for Full Paper is Closed IOP, Journal of Physics: Conference Series

Conference Proceedings and Manuscript Submission

Participants who present their work at the conference, whether in oral or poster presentations, will be invited to submit their full papers for consideration in the proceedings. The Proceeding will be published in IOP-Science  Journal of Physics: Conference Series.

  1. Exclusivity of Submissions: SPARK 2023 will only consider papers that have not been accepted elsewhere for publication, whether in conferences or journals, and have not been previously published. Authors are also required to commit to not submitting their papers to other venues during the reviewing period of SPARK 2023.
  2. Plagiarism Check: All submitted manuscripts will undergo a thorough plagiarism check to maintain the originality of the contributions.
  3. Peer Review Process: Each submitted research article will undergo a single-blind peer review process. Expert reviewers, who are independent of the authors, will assess the quality and significance of the research.
  4. Multiple Reviewers: Every submission will be reviewed by at least two independent experts in the field to ensure a fair and balanced evaluation.
  5. Editorial Decision: While the peer review reports will be considered, the final decision rests with the editors, who are not bound by the opinions or recommendations of the reviewers.
  6. Reviewer Feedback and Manuscript Status: Authors will receive peer review reports along with the editorial decision on their manuscript. If a concern is raised by a single peer reviewer or one of the editors, it may result in the rejection of the manuscript.
  7. Exceptional Circumstances: In rare cases where two independent peer reviewers cannot be secured, one of the editors with relevant expertise may serve as a second reviewer, or a decision may be made using a single review report.
  8. Conflict of Interest: In instances where an Editor has a competing interest with a specific manuscript, the other Editor will oversee the peer review process to ensure impartiality.

The tentative timeline for full paper submission is within two months following the conference. We will provide the authors with the manuscript format, exact timeline of submission and other necessary details very soon to ensure a smooth submission process.

About the Symposium

The department of Physics, North Lakhimpur University (formerly North Lakhimpur College (Autonomous)) is pleased to announce Symposium of Physics: Advances in Research and Knowledge (SPARK) 2023, the one-day long National Conference on Current Trends in Physics-2023 on 14th October, 2023. The conference will consist of invited keynote speeches as well as parallel sessions. A poster session will also be held throughout the day to provide an opportunity to young researchers to showcase their research. Deliberations from both theoretical and experimental fronts are expected to cover a variety of topics in physics. The Proceeding will be published in IOP-Science Journal of Physics: Conference Series. Both oral and poster presentations will be considered for the proceedings.

Dept. of Physics

North Lakhimpur University

The newly established university is one of the latest additions to the state of Assam's higher education landscape, having been established in September 2023. This significant development came about when the Assam government upgraded the former North Lakhimpur College to a state university. The former North Lakhimpur College (Autonomous) had already carved out a distinguished reputation in the field of higher education in Assam. Notably, it was the first autonomous college in Assam and the second in the entire North East India region.

The Department of Physics at this institution was initiated in 1966, marking a pivotal moment in the institution's history. In 1976, the department introduced the BSc Honours course in Physics. Since its inception, the department has been at the forefront of physics education in the North East, producing over 400 graduates.The department introduced the MSc course in 2021. Furthermore, it is currently in the process of planning and preparing to launch Research Programs later this year.
