Ahmedabad University is going to organize an annual economic conference. I have completed my graduation this year. A few conferences which were held at my university published the accepted papers in a booklet (made specially for the conference held). So I was under the impression that if I get my paper accepted at this conference, I might get published which would help me in getting admission to good graduate schools. But when I contacted the Ahmedabad University regarding the publication of papers, this was their reply:
We do not publish papers in any conference proceedings. However, there is a best paper award.
Suppose that my paper doesn't win the best paper award, my question is: if they won't publish my paper in any of their proceedings or booklets, how would I be able mention it in my CV and how would the recruiting team of my target graduate schools be able to access it to evaluate the level of my work?
How would a recruiter of a Graduate School regard the student who had submitted a paper in such a conference, but didn't win the best paper award?
