To be accepted for SMICE2018 Conference, the submissions must report novel work, well described, and suited to the IWA Conference themes. Submissions must contain original data and meet international ethical standards.

Selection criteria include high technical quality, relevance to the conference themes, and significant information content. Papers for accepted abstracts must be prepared by adopting the Paper Template.

On the basis of the submitted extended abstracts, a review will be undertaken to select the best papers for oral presentation or poster presentation. All selected extended abstracts will be published in the Conference proceedings with ISBN.

At least one author of each selected paper must register and attend the conference to present the paper (poster or oral presentation).

After the Conference, the highest quality Abstracts will be selected and authors will receive an invitation to submit full-manuscripts for publication in one of the IWA journals (Water Science and Technology, Water Science and Technology: Water Supply or Water Practice and Technology).
