The purpose of this document is to provide a set of guiding principles expected to follow by the participants. The e-conference is first time organized at the University of Jaffna. The JUICE 2014 is focusing on the ‘Accelerated Regional Development’ contributing productively by the academic across the world on the development of the region, The region can be Asia, Southeast Asia, Indian Subcontinent, Sri Lanka and even narrow down to Northern and Eastern Provinces. This conference is scheduled in December 18-19, 2014.

The theme of the conference has wider interest among the academia on the development of the region. Those who find difficult to participate the conference in person here is an opportunity through the electronic based platform to share their experiences, critical comments and productive advices.


Prior to the JUICE2014 conference we wish to have an e-mail assisted conference. The theme of the e-conference is narrowed down to “Accelerated Development in Northern and Eastern Provinces of Sri Lanka’. Now Northern Provincial Council is active and the development of these provinces is in the hands of Provincial councils and the Central Government. Suggestions, this is purely an academic exercise and we expect positive and productive comments from the participants on the theme who find difficult to participate the JUICE 2014 Conference. Constructive criticisms are welcome towards the development of the provinces and the participants are requested to avoid personal criticisms and negative approaches that anyway will not help for a fruitful discussion.


The guidelines are to assist the academia living in Sri Lanka and abroad who has interest on the development of the country and especially on the development of Northern and Eastern Provinces. The ideas, insights, dialogues and debates from the e-conference are purely from the participants and JUICE 2014 will not hold any responsibilities on the comments and ideas shared by the participants, however the participant’s name and contact details will be appearing in each message documented with the number. At the end of the e-conference the messages will be documented with a summary and make available to the JUICE 2014 conference to be held in December 18-19, 2014 and to the concerned authorities.
