I would like to congratulate all of you for your efforts in making sure that your scholarly responsibilities of creating knowledge, while growing knowledge were marked with a seal of excellence through peer-reviewed ABSTRACTS, which, in certain cases, ended up as book chapters, published in Springer Nature (
