Guidelines for Authors

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. English is the official language of the conference, the paper should be written and presented only in English.

Full paper is requested, if you are also considering publishing your paper.
If you just want to make an oral presentation during ICIMEE 2021 without paper publication, then you can only submit an abstract.

Please refer to the Paper Submission Guideline and Abstract Submission Guideline before submitting your paper. Please ensure your submission meets the conference’s strict guidelines for accepting scholarly papers.

Paper Submission Guideline

We now differentiate between the requirements for new and revised submissions. You may choose to submit your manuscript as a single Word file to be used in the refereeing process. Only when your paper is at the revision stage, will you be requested to put your paper in to a ‘correct format’ for acceptance and provide the items required for the publication of your article.

To find out more, please visit the Preparation section below.

Once a paper is submitted, the review process starts, as follows:

1. Anti-Plagiarism Screening
We conduct the first review of the submitted papers to ensure that all papers are clear, authentic and relevant to the conference material.

2. Expert Review
Every paper submitted to ICIMEE conference is sent to at least two reviewers that include members of the Technical Program Committee and additional qualified reviewers.
Once the paper reviewed, the author will be able to view the reviewers’ comments.

3. Paper Approval
Acceptance of the paper is based on the relevance, originality, technical soundness, presentation, references, and scientific merit of the paper. The conference chair makes the final decision on the acceptance or rejection of the paper.
