Additional Information

The congress has the focus on the frontier topics in the theoretical and applied engineering and computer science subjects. The WCECS conferences serve as good platforms for our members and the entire engineering community to meet with each other and to exchange ideas. Our last IAENG conference has attracted more than one thousand participants from over 30 countries, and our conference committees have been formed with over two hundred and sixty committee members who are mainly research center heads, faculty deans, department heads, professors, and research scientists from over 20 countries. All submitted papers will be under peer review and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceeding (ISBN: 978-988-98671-0-2). The abstracts will be indexed and available at major academic databases. The accepted papers will also be considered for publication in the special issues of the journal Engineering Letters, in IAENG journals and in edited books.
