Important Links:

The 26th ICE/IEEE ITMC 2020 invites high-quality papers to be presented at this premier international event. Submissions should contribute to a substantial, original and previously unpublished research in the topics of the conference. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Theoretical research papers that provide new concepts in the domain of engineering, technology, and innovation;
  • Empirical studies and qualitative case studies that develop new insights;
  • System design and development papers that go beyond the pure description of systems and give insight into theory and effectiveness of the approach;
  • Verification and validation papers that evaluate the application of solutions.

The review committee is available to provide feedback on abstracts and paper ideas (submit your proposal to ice-conference2020@conftool.pro).

Papers will be selected through a double-blind refereeing process based on the submitted full papers.

Final papers should have no more than 7.000 words (max. 9 pages all inclusive) and must be in the correct format.

The paper should clearly describe its purpose and relevance, a reference to existing theories and related works, research methods used and major results in engineering, technology and innovation.

Papers are expected to show the following structure: (i) Introduction, (ii) Relation to existing theories and work, (iii) Research/Technology/Innovation approach, (iv) Findings, (v) Conclusion, and (vi) References.

Papers are expected to be submitted in A4 format using the ICE/IEEE ICE’2020 paper template that further contains all relevant explanations about papers’ structure and layout as well as needed copyright information.

Review criteria will be : (a) whether and (b) how the paper extends the existing body of knowledge in engineering, technology and innovation as its contribution, and (c) therefore its relevance for the conference topics, (d) the scientific/innovation quality of the approach and (e) the clarity of presentation. Papers will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

Papers will only be accepted for review on the condition that the material is original, that it has not been copyrighted, published, presented or is currently submitted for consideration elsewhere.

Please see our IEEE ICE’2020 Author’s Kit for detailed instructions about all relevant dates, correct submission of needed documents, and Conference Proceedings.

Based on the recommendations of the reviewers, the editorial committee will allocate submissions for oral presentation of papers and/or for poster presentations. Speakers will have 20 minutes for presentation and discussion of their paper. The official language of the conference is English.

The ICE/IEEE ITMC 2020 conference will publish one paper per presenting author only. All accepted, compliant and plagiarism-free papers will be submitted for publication in the digital conference proceedings to be available via IEEE Xplore® (with ISBN Number and DOI for the paper), only if at least one author pays a full registration fee before the deadline.

All Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) providers can be found here: http://ieeeauthorcenter.ieee.org/when-your-article-is-published/abstracting-indexing-ai-databases/ and include amongst others Scopus and Web of Science.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extensions of the presented work to special issues of indexed scientific journals

Please Note: All authors must  pay the whole conference fee, even if they want to join only for the day of their presentation.
