Academics, researchers and practitioners worldwide have joined hands to establish SASCV and share of best practices in the context of South Asia. SASCV hosted its first international conference during January 15-17, 2011 at Hotel Jaipur Greens (5 Star), Jaipur, Rajasthan. The website of the Conference was http://www.sascv.org/conf2011 and online submission of abstracts as well as registration was facilitated in the site.
