Guideline for Authors

Upholding the principles of transparency, efficiency, and fairness, ICIST focuses on disseminating knowledge and technologies worldwide by performing its obligations as conference organizers. For academics, professionals, students, engineers, practitioners and stakeholders in their respective subject areas, the opportunities of meeting each other, conveying and communicating insights and thoughts are significant to give their career a higher profile. For those who wish to join a scholarly conference, to a large extent they wish their work could be involved in the conference proceedings, be published and be able to read by more audiences in the scientific research communities. As proceedings publication becomes one of the major considerations for a successful conference, we furnish guidelines for authors and reviewers, describing how the paper and abstract will be handled after submission. The organizers and all committee members of ICIST encourage you to contribute your latest work to this conference.
