The importance of knowledge creation and sharing are well understood in the knowledge society. Academicians and researchers across the world sweat for making a better world; conduct research, attempt for quality publications, meet other scholars at research forums to share knowledge, etc. Yet factors are hindering the target. Over the decades, it had been observed that a large number of published research articles are erroneous due to a lack of knowledge in quantitative research. Institute of Mathematics and Management (IMM) determined to fill the knowledge gap; take initiative to conduct the conference along with the "Workshop in Data Analytics".
Lecturer, Department of Psychology, Asutosh College, India
Topic: Role of Inferential Statistics in Psychology

Call for Papers
Original research papers and review papers in Education, Social Sciences, and related disciplines from Undergraduate and Post Graduate Students, Research Scholars, Faculty, Scientists, etc., are invited for presentation and publication.
The review process consists, Desk screening and Peer Review as follows;
Each manuscript submitted to the conference will be first evaluated by the Editor/Editorial Board. The Editor/Editorial Board has the right to desk review and “desk reject” the manuscript without sending it out for peer review
After an initial evaluation by the Editor/Editorial Board, the manuscript will be sent to two reviewers appointed by the Editor/ Editorial Board. The number of reviewers can be increased if necessary. IMM employs double-blind reviewing – both the reviewer(s) and the author(s) remain anonymous throughout the process. The reviewer(s) will evaluate the manuscript's originality, significance, research design, methodology, presentation of results, and appropriate referencing of relevant past studies. If the reviewer(s) recommend revision, the Editor/Editorial Board may invite the author(s) to revise and resubmit the manuscript based on the comments and suggestions from the reviewer(s). The author(s) need to re-submit the revised manuscript on or before the date announced by the Editor/Editorial Board. The Editor/Editorial Board will make the final decision on acceptance/rejection based on the final reviewer (s).
Abstracts of the papers will be published in Conference Proceedings; Hard copy or E-copy, with ISSN number. Selected full papers will be published in the Journal of New Frontiers in Education and Social Sciences (JNFESS) with ISSN, within three months from the date of the conference.
Deadline for Abstract Submission: 25th October 2020
Submission of Papers: Participants intending to publish the full paper in the journal, JNFESS is requested to submit a soft copy of the full paper within 30 days from the date of the conference.
Submission Guidelines: Refer to the Abstract Template and Full Paper Template for guidance.
Notifications of acceptance/ rejection are within 2 weeks from the date of submission
Instructors: Dr (Mrs.) W. G. Samanthi Konarasinghe, Dr.K.Srinivasa Rao and Major K. M. Udaya Banda Konarasinghe (Retired)
This workshop will be hands-on and driven by examples, using real-life data sets from the fields of; Life Sciences & Health Care, Business & Economics, Finance, Tourism Management, Meteorology, and many more. The intended participants for the course are students and practitioners of a data-driven environment.
Outline and Objectives
The statistical software; MINITAB, MATLAB / SPSS, and Excel will be the main tools utilized in the workshop, but the previous knowledge in handling the above software is not a must. The entire workshop will be example-driven; therefore participants are encouraged to bring a laptop computer (Windows) for optimum benefit. Instructions for installing the necessary software can be sent to the participants before the workshop or trial versions of software can be provided at the workshop. By the end of the day, participants will have learned; Mathematical/ Statistical Modeling; Introduction to Big Data handling and Programming; Parametric VS Non- parametric Statistics; Descriptive Statistics; Inferential Statistics; Univariate and Multivariate Forecasting. Participants can have direct communication with the instructors (via e-mail or Skype); to get guidance for their future work.
