CIMEE 2020 – Call for Papers

The Organizing Committee of CIMEE20 is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for The Third International Symposium on Materials, Electrochemistry & Environment. We invite all those wishing to participate to submit a proposal to present their work, which can be a lecture, a workshop, a poster exhibition, or special session, addressing the Materials, Electrochemistry and Environment through one of the topics:


We encourages researchers and students to submit Work-in-Progress (WiP) papers based on their recent viewpoints, new discoveries, and early-stage design and development in disciplines that are in line with CIMEE’s areas of interest. The WiP session is geared towards early career researchers, but also caters to seasoned scholars for the presentation of unfinished projects. The WiP track thus provides a unique opportunity for exchanging brave new ideas, for receiving feedback on projects currently in progress and for fostering collaborations

All full paper submissions will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability.


For papers submitted to CIMEE 2020, accepted papers will be recommended to be published in the abstract book/Partners journals

The selection of papers for presentation and publication is based on the quality and scientific rigor of the submissions evaluated in a peer-review process.

Plagiarism is strictly forbidden in any academic conference, the articles submitted should be original and unpublished. Any Violations will be dealt with seriously in accordance with the policy.


Best paper special issues

Dear Colleagues,

We are proud to announce a Special Issue, “Innovative chemistry for sustainable environmental remediation”, in partner journal devoted to the 3rd International Symposium on Materials, Electrochemistry and Applications (CIMEE20).

The organizing committee has teamed up with the Special Issue Journal on in the area of chemistry and environmental Analytical Chemistry This Special Issue will select excellent papers from the oral (plenary, keynotes, and regular talks) and posters participations, and covers a very wide range of fields in Materials, Electrochemistry and Environmental analytical chemistry, focusing in environmental applications.

All the papers will be peer reviewed. Selected presented and registered papers from CIMEE 20 with good quality will be recommended to publish in the special issues journals. All submissions must be no less than 6 pages in length.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles, as well as review articles, to this Special Issue.

Call for Special Sessions

The technical program of CIMEE20 will include a number of special sessions to complement the technical program.

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the Symposium book. Special sessions concentrate on critical and emerging topics in Materials, Electrochemistry and environmental analytical chemistry.

Interested authors are  invited to submit special session proposals, which should contain a title, motivation and scope as well as a biosketch of the organizers, by email (
