Paper Submission Guidelines

  1. An author wishing to present in the conference shall create a document consisting of a complete description of his/her ideas and applicable research results in not more than eight (8) pages, including all text, figures and references.
  2. A maximum of two (2) papers may be submitted by the same first author. If the same first author submits two (2) papers, a supplementary publication fee is due for the additional paper.
  3. Papers should be formatted according to the Guidelines described here. All papers must be written in English and submitted in MS Word (.doc or .docx) for both the review process and final manuscript submission.
  4. Paper Template (MS Word)
  5. Papers submitted will be reviewed by experts selected by the Publication Committee for their demonstrated knowledge of particular topics. Authors will be notified of the review results by email.
  6. Papers must be submitted by the deadline date. There will be no exceptions.
  7. Accepted papers must be presented at the conference by one of the authors, or, if none of the authors are able to attend, by a qualified representative. The presenter must register for the conference at one of the rates offered, and must register before the deadline given for author registration. Failure to register before the deadline will result in automatic withdrawal of your paper from the conference proceedings and programme.
  8. The paper must be an original contribution. By submitting a manuscript to IConCEES 2021, the author guarantees that it has not been previously published (or accepted for publication) in substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper that contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper either has been or will be submitted during the IConCEES 2021 review period to any other journal or conference.
  9. If there are papers that may appear to violate any of these conditions, then it is the authors' responsibility to cite these papers, argue in the body of your paper why your IConCEES 2021 paper is non-trivially different from these concurrent submissions, and include anonymised versions of those papers as supplemental material.

Paper Review Process

  1. Papers submitted will be pre-screened for conformity with submission guidelines and for overall appropriateness. Papers that pass the initial screening process will then be double-blind reviewed.
  2. The double-blind peer review process is employed to ensure that both authors and reviewers remain anonymous during the review process. Expert specialists in Civil and Environmental Engineering will be selected to perform the reviews.
  3. This process will take place prior to both the podium presentation at the conference and the publication of the proceedings. Authors will receive feedback in the form of a peer review report. The paper peer review process and the outcomes presented in the review reports will be monitored and verified by the Publication Committee.

Paper Publication

  1. All accepted papers presented at IConCEES 2021 will be published in IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science (ISSN: 1755-1315) that is indexed by Clarivate Web Of Science (WoS) , Scopus , Ei Compendex, EBSCO Discovery Service, SCite, NASA Astrophysics Data System, British Library Services, and many more.
  2. Publication of papers in the proceedings is conditioned on a positive assessment by reviewers.
  3. Failure to present at IConCEES 2021 will result in the automatic withdrawal of your paper from the conference proceedings. Read our no-show policy.

Presentation Guidelines

Presenters are encouraged to follow guidelines below, which have been designed to assist you in preparing an effective presentation for IConCEES 2021.

Presentation via Video Conferencing

  1. Presentations during the IConCEES 2021 technical sessions will be conducted virtually using Zoom / Google Meet.
  2. Each presenter will be allocated a slot to present their paper orally during the technical sessions. If you are presenting more than one paper, you will be given multiple slots.
  3. Presenters will have to present their paper live during the IConCEES 2021 online technical sessions. Recorded presentations are not allowed.

Duration of Presentations

  1. The time given for each oral presentation is a maximum of eight (8) minutes.
  2. The question and answer (Q & A) session will be conducted immediately after each presentation. A maximum of five (5) minutes will be allocated for each Q & A session.
  3. Kindly note that the session Chairperson will strictly enforce the time limit on your presentation.

Preparation of Presentation Slides

  1. Your oral presentation must be accompanied by Microsoft PowerPoint slides. Please prepare a maximum of ten (10) slides, excluding the title and acknowledgement slides. This is to ensure that your oral presentation does not exceed the time limit.
  2. Special attention must be paid to: the font size chosen (i.e. no smaller than 20 point), the choice of colour scheme for the background and text, avoiding text-heavy slides, avoiding injudicious use of object builds (animations) and slide transitions, and keeping your presentation as simple as possible to avoid hardware and software conflicts. Audio and video files cause the most problems, so avoid using them.

Register As An Attendee

Registration Policy

  1. All participants must register to attend the conference either as a presenter or an attendee.
  2. One registration serves ONE (1) participant only.
  3. The registration fee includes admission for ONE (1) person to the two-day conference. Presenter registration fee also includes publication of ONE (1) paper in the conference proceedings that will be indexed by Web Of Science (WOS), among others. Additional papers and/or pages will incur an extra charge to the registration fee.
  4. Registrations may not be transferred to anyone.
  5. Once the registration fees have been paid there will be no refunds.

Cancellation Policy

Confirmed registrants who do not participate or who cancel will forfeit their registration fees. Refunds will not be given for no-shows. IConCEES 2021 reserves the right to cancel any event if the minimum registration is not met. In the event of an IConCEES 2021 cancellation, all registration fees will be refunded.

No-Show Policy

Papers that are accepted must be presented at the conference, either by the authors themselves, or via proxy. In case a paper is not presented at the conference, it shall be deemed a "no-show". No-shows will be removed from post-conference distribution and will not be available on open-access publications.

Exceptions to this policy will be made in rare and unusual situations by the Organising Committee only if there is evidence that the no-show occurred because of unanticipated events beyond the control of the authors, and that every option available to the authors to present the paper was exhausted.

Authors of no-show papers wishing to appeal the no-show status of their paper must appeal by email to the Organising Committee no later than 14 days after the start of IConCEES 2021 and must provide evidence to convincingly demonstrate that their absence was as a result of forces beyond their will and control, or that an erroneous decision was made.

Decisions on appeals will be made by the Organising Committee based on the supporting evidence provided. Failure to meet the appeals deadline will automatically result in rejection of the appeal. Possible evidence for exceptions include medical documents, death notices, airline ticket receipts, visa-rejection letters, and other official documents supporting the appeal such as visa-application receipts (proof that the application was submitted at least 8 weeks prior to the conference start date).


The IConCEES 2021 registration fee includes admission for one (1) person during the two-day event.
