Papers and Presentations should be relevant to the above theme, and therefore highlight contribution of engineers to development in all the relevant domains. It should also highlight the achievements in engineering and what’s to come in future.


Presenters are solely responsible for the creation of their presentation. For a successful and productive conference, all presenters should adhere to the following guidelines:

Written paper must maximum 8000 words for presentation at the conference   and to be submitted by August 21, 2018.

Font to be used is Times New Roman 12pt, single spacing. All margins must be one inch on all sides for the body of the paper.

All papers must be submitted as Microsoft Word documents. Papers submitted in PDF may not be accepted.

Do not include page numbers and a running head. This will allow the editors to combine all papers into one unified proceedings document.

Use footnotes and endnotes sparingly, if at all. This helps the editors to combine all papers into a unified proceedings document and have the references correct for each paper.

Figures will be reproduced exactly as supplied, with no redrawing. It is therefore imperative that the supplied figures are of the highest possible quality.

Only selected papers will be published in the Annual IEM Journal which will be released during the conference.

All papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

The IEM reserves the right to publish the papers.

All presentations are to be in English. The presenter should be able to understand and respond to audience questions in English.

Presenters will be given 25 minutes for their presentation, inclusive of around 5 minutes for Q&A.

Presenters should save their presentation in PowerPoint format on a flash drive (memory stick). Cloud-based storage (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive) and presentation software (e.g. Prezi) should not be used as speed of internet might not be guaranteed.

All presentation rooms will be equipped with a podium, microphone, Windows laptop, projector, and screen. Each presentation will also have Internet access, if needed.  Macintosh compatibility is not guaranteed unless prior arrangement made.

Arrive to your session room 15 minutes before the session begins to upload your presentation to the provided laptop.


Presentation from the personal laptops may be acceptable, but compatibility with the projector cannot be guaranteed.

Presentations may be recorded and made publically available.
