Conference is one of the major activities at IIMK. It gives opportunity to researchers to discuss their research topics at the conference, share their research findings, fine tune their research output with existing literature and ongoing research efforts in the field by others. It also helps in getting input for improvements and in identifying issues for future research.
IIMK has created academic and residential infrastructure for conferences to accommodate up to 250 delegates in the campus in a picturesque setting akin to summer resort on hills. This will go up to cater to 350 delegates in summer of 2009 and further 550 delegates by 2010-11.
Conferences are also conducted in collaboration with other business schools at various locations.

There were over 800 research papers presented in those conferences. Four books and five conference proceedings have already been published.
