For Authors

Paper Submission Guidelines

  1. An author wishing to present in ISCEE 2020 will create a document consisting of a complete description of his/her ideas and applicable research results in six (6) to eight (8) pages only, 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. Papers submitted for presentation and publication must strictly follow the Appointed Publisher's Paper Template.
  5. Accepted papers must be presented at ISCEE 2020 by one of the authors, or, if none of the authors are able to attend, by a qualified surrogate. The presenter must register for ISCEE 2020 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 program.
  6. The paper must be an original contribution. By submitting a manuscript to ISCEE 2020, 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 ISCEE 2020 review period to any other journal or conference.

Paper Template

Authors shall prepare their papers according to the template provided in the link below. The template contains instructions for the preparation of your paper. Papers that do not comply with the prescribed format will be rejected.

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 within the fields of Civil and Environmental Engineering will be selected to perform the reviews.
  3. This process will take place prior to the presentation at ISCEE 2020 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 Editorial Committee.

Paper Publication

  1. Papers successfully presented at ISCEE 2020 will be published in IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering that is indexed by Clarivate Web Of Science , Chemical Abstracts Service, NASA Astrophysics Data System, Polymer Library, EBSCO Discovery Service, British Library Services, and many more.
  2. Acceptance and publication of papers in the Conference Proceedings are conditioned on a positive assessment by at least two reviewers.

For Presenters

Presenter Guidelines

  1. Presentations during the ISCEE 2020 technical sessions will be conducted virtually.
  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. As per requirement by SCOPUS, presenters will have to present their paper live during the ISCEE 2020 online technical sessions. The time given for each oral presentation is a maximum of eight (8) minutes.
  4. The Q&A session will be conducted immediately after each presentation. A maximum of five (5) minutes will be allocated for each Q&A session.
  5. Your oral presentation must be accompanied by Microsoft PowerPoint slides. Please prepare a maximum of ten (10) slides. This is to ensure that your oral presentation does not exceed the time limit.
  6. Presenters will have to upload their PowerPoint slides before the conference. We will provide a Google Form link for you to register and upload your PowerPoint slides.
  7. Online Registration
  8. When preparing your presentation slides, special attention must be paid to the font size chosen (i.e. no smaller than 20 pt), 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.
  9. Presentations will be conducted via Zoom. Thus, all presenters will have to install the Zoom app to their smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop, and get accustomed to the app. We will provide a guide to operate Zoom as a presenter. Click here to install Zoom.
  10. Presenters are requested to join the ISCEE 2020 Telegram Channel for all the latest information.
