Every extended abstract that is submitted online would undergo a double-blind peer review process and be identified as suitable for Poster / Presentation / Proceedings. All accepted extended abstracts will be published as an abstract book proceeding of MIPS 2024. At least one author of the shortlisted submission has to register for the conference. Selected and reviewed submissions would be accommodated in the Research / Practitioners / Case study stream. The earlier editions of MIPS were published as Vol I and Vol II, with select papers being shortlisted for special issue publication in International Journals.

Conference Awards

In order to enhance, expand, and acknowledge the quality of IPR research occurring, MIPS recognizes the submission with two sets of awards – for the practitioner and the academician. Full papers are a must to be eligible for the conference awards.

Conference Components

The conference provides the ideal opportunity for emerging researchers in the IPR domain to interact with experts and practitioners through a doctoral colloquium, themed tracks, and keynote sessions.
