International Conference on Multidisciplinary Research (iCMR 2020)

"Winning formula during a pandemic"



About BCAS

British College of Applied Studies was established in 1999, and it is popularly known as BCAS CAMPUS. It has swiftly grown into one of the leading vocational and tertiary education providers in Sri Lanka with comparatively large student population in the private sector higher education.

BCAS with its strong collaboration with the reputed universities in the UK offers bachelor and master degrees in the disciplines of Business, Law, Engineering, Bio Medical Science, Nursing, Information Technology and Quantity Surveying. More than hundred research papers from local and international researchers in academia as well as from the industry in multidisciplinary research were received such as Engineering, Quantity Surveying, Business Management, Information Technology, Law and International Relations, Science, Social Science and Education. Abstracts were accepted after the double-blind peer review by the experts in the research fields. BCAS has already conducted five symposia in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. The symposium in 2020 will be a one step further to continue as International Conference on Multidisciplinary Research (iCMR)-2020 with the inspiring theme of “winning formula during pandemic”.
