TECHNICAL PAPER PRESENTATION
Everyday, thousands of people from rural areas migrate to nearby cities in search of work. Used to living in widespread green fields, they are forced to live in crammed city slums. WHY?
Because they do not have enough employment in rural areas, that can feed them and their family. Industrialization happens only near urban areas, as it gets the right infrastructure support. Does that mean that rural areas will always be deprived of industries that can generate employment?
Villagers try to sell their products in urban areas, so that they can fetch more money. But the demands / requirements of 70% of our population (in rural areas) is never met, as they cannot pay as much. Thus with decreasing production, less skills for livelihood, reducing scope of employment, people are running away from villages to cities, to do anything and everything there
What do you think needs to be done?
Can upgrading their skills through technology give them employment in rural areas?
Can setting up a chain of small scale / cottage industry generate employment there?
Can implementing alternative energy devices improve infrastructure and generate employment there?
Can improved farming technology generate employment there?
Can better utilization of resources generate employment there?
Can efficient waste management generate employment there?
Put your thoughts together and see how Technology can help in generating enough employment in rural areas, so that villagers do not have to migrate to urban areas. Present your thoughts in the form of a Technical Paper at PEHAL-2013. The most innovative, simple, practical solutions will get the awards.
Please read the following guidelines carefully, to present your paper:

Please follow the following guidelines to help make the technical paper sessions successful.The event will be held in two stages, 1st is the Abstract submission & 2nd will be the Final presentation.
STAGE 1: ABSTRACT SUBMISSION
It is the screening round in which our panel of experts will evaluate each abstract on its innovativeness, sustainability, scalability, and profitability.
STAGE 2: PAPER PRESENTATION
The final presentation shall be on power point in front of the jury during PEHAL 2013. Please prepare your viewgraphs/slides in Windows PowerPoint (.ppt/.pptx/.pps) in advance. No materials or equipment will be available at the conference for preparing your presentation materials at the last minute.
