  • Abstract

Welcome to the 3rd ISCBI, the flagship event of the INNS-India Regional Chapter. The year 2015, being the 5th anniversary of the formation of INNS-India, bears a special significance for us. The society, which took off on November 12, 2010, has remained airborne and completed 5 years of its journey, thanks to the support of all of its stakeholders. The journey has indeed been challenging but extremely educational and satisfying too. Challenging because the task of establishing a completely new society an using it as an umbrella for bringing very focused personnel under it was certainly not an easy one. And to be frank, the journey was not entirely free of turbulence either. At the same time, the responsibility has taught us, among other things, to cultivate patience and not to expect any radical solution of any problem overnight. Ultimately the feedback, informing us about our being able to meet the expectations of the stakeholders, is most satisfying and motivating. I solicit your continued patronage in the coming days, and your views, stating both the merits and demerits of our style of working, will keep us navigating in the right direction.

Coming to ISCBI 2015 after carrying out an array of activities in India during the past 5 years, including the two successful ISCBIs, we decided to make the presence of the INNS-India Regional Chapter felt in other corners of the world too. The aim was to make the society a national outfit with a global outlook. Accordingly, after celebrating the 5th anniversary in Hong Kong, we selected picturesque Bali as the place for organizing our flagship event this year. Apart from its being a famous and hot tourist destination (especially during the month of December of any year) with extremely good connectivity, the tremendous support and interest exhibited by the friends in Indonesia tilted the selection in favor of Bali.

The entire team of ISCBI 2015 as well as the members of the ExeCom of INNS-India has promoted the event vigorously and helped us in receiving a sizable number of quality manuscripts from diverse parts of the globe. I wish to express my sincere gratitude to all of them. The Program Chairs and the Formula$\text{IPC}$ members demonstrated their extreme professionalism by completing the process of reviewing and shortlisting of papers within the stipulated time.

I wish to express my heartfelt thanks to all the authors who submitted their research findings for presentation at ISCBI 2015. Various constraints, including putting more emphasis on quality, compelled us to accept only a subset of the total number of submitted manuscripts. My hearty congratulations go to all the authors of the accepted papers. I am sure this acceptance will make them pursue their research with more vigor.

Apart from the usual participation, which involves renewing old friendships and building new bridges, I believe that all of you will find your sojourn in Bali comfortable and its scenic beauty enjoyable. I also hope that we will continue to be in touch in the coming days. Your feedback-good or bad-will be one of the essential ingredients for our future success, and I urge you once more to assist us toward that. Before ending, let me wish all of you a very happy and prosperous new year with the hope to be able to cross paths with you once more during 2016.

With Warm Regards,
