MES strives to be as inclusive as possible. However, some scholars from across the countries find it difficult to participate in the conference for want of financial support. Traditionally, the inclusive practice in MES includes donations from well-equipped participants and supporters in order to support scholars who could not afford to join the conference without financial support. If you want to make a difference, please use the donation option when you register for the conference.

Note: 50 US Dollar is approximately 3570 Rupees (INR) and 50 Euro is approximately 4000 Rupees (INR)
