This year 2021 the conference will be in HYBRID mode (face to face or/and virtual), if the health conditions and travelling restrictions do not allow CIEES 2021 to be held in-person, the conference will be moved to a fully virtual format.

Authors have to submit a paper in English (British), checked for correct grammar and spelling.
The review process is single-blind, i.e. the reviewers are anonymous (reviewers know the authors’ names and backgrounds, but authors don’t know those of the reviewers).

Manuscript Preparation Instructions

NOTE: Manuscripts that do not conform to the formatting guidelines below will be removed from further consideration without review.
Please strictly follow template styles MS Word. Before starting, read the example document with detailed instructions. Further information is available at IOP Conference Series: Material Science and Engineering author guidelines.

Abstract: included up to 200 words.
