Call for papers / presentations

We gladly invite both Academic and Industrial community to submit top quality Research papers and Industrial case presentations related to engineering, operations, and management of Engineering assets and Public infrastructures.

This call for Research papers and Industry presentations aims at drawing diverse industry wide and top Research expertise that can stimulate fresh discussions and views, create innovative ideas, and explore smart solutions. The WCEAM-2018 Congress will cover a range of Technical themes that has a direct connection to your passion, professional interest, and expertise. Those areas are of interest to Asset owners, Operators, Producers, Technology developers, Service providers, Public institutions, and the Academic & Research community.

We also cover a wide range of Industrial and Public sectors, inclusive of; Oil & Gas, Refining industry, Nuclear, Hydropower, Renewable Energy, Ocean & Maritime sector, Mining, Public Infrastructures and Land transportation, Green Manufacturing, Process industry, Engineering structures and Buildings, Construction sector, Healthcare Systems, Aeronautics and Aerospace, Information and Telecommunication sector. We actively encourage those who have top expertise on specific Technical themes to deliver a workshop, seminar, training activity, or a round table session at the Congress. If you are keen, we will be excited to hear from you. All Abstracts, Papers, and Presentations will be reviewed by the International Scientific Committee of the Congress for inclusion in the Congress Proceedings. Selected research and thought-leading industry papers will be peer reviewed, and if accepted will be published in the Springer ebook after the event titled, “Engineering assets and Public infrastructures in the Age of Digitalization” and subtitled, “Proceedings of the 13th World Congress on Engineering Asset Management”. The Springer ebook series is indexed by Scopus and is also currently being assessed for inclusion in EI Compendex. Past proceedings are available on the Springerlink web site.
