    Whether draft or paper written by two or more is acceptable in competition? If yes, What will be the position if paper is written by one Professor and one student jointly.

    i had a doubt relating to the submission of the draft(five pages)which you have mentioned. Do we have to submit abstract with it or only in the final submission we have to send the abstract.or it depends on the writer to include or not to include the abstract in the deadline of 31st october?

    • Judith Romero says:

      A precis (or abstract) of the proposed paper is due by 10/31. We will judge these preliminary submissions to determine the prize winners. Completed papers are due later, before the conference held in February.

  4. ravi says:

    Whether precis should contain references (footnotes or endnote) or not?

  5. Ravi says:

    Please clarify whether topic should cover all patent remedies or it could be restricted to one remedy or one issue in remedy?
