Before submitting your manuscript for peer review, you are kindly requested to do the following:

Abstract submission

Abstract submission is necessary if you want to give a presentation during the Conference. Besides, only authors with an accepted abstract are invited to upload a full paper.

The abstract should be submitted in doc(x) or pdf format without any author information in the document. It should be no longer than one page.

All abstracts are reviewed following a double-blind review process. Please ensure that author information is not provided in the abstract document. The notification about acceptance/rejection will be sent to the corresponding author.

Note, that at least one author of the submission must register to the Conference and present the paper during the Conference. Otherwise, the submission will not be included in the Conference Program.

Full paper submission

1. The manuscript should be written in English including tables, figures and equations

2. Only original papers will be considered, the manuscripts must not be previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere. must not be under review by any other conference or publication during the review cycle.

3. The research topic of the manuscript should fall into the conference scopes (refer to the 2nd Announcement CIMEE22)

4. The accepted paper limits are 5-6 pages including all figures, tables, references, and acknowledgement.

5. After you receive notification that your abstract is accepted, you are welcome to submit a full paper. By providing the full paper, you will receive feedback from two reviewers. You will have a possibility to decide whether you want that your paper would be considered for publication in Conference Proceedings or Special Issues. However, it is necessary that at least one author of the submission register to the Conference and present the paper during the Conference. Otherwise, the paper review process will not be arranged and the submission will not be included into the Conference Program.

Note, that abstract acceptance does not necessarily mean that your full paper is automatically accepted for publication. The Editor leaves the right to reject the paper if it does not fit with the scope and requirements of Conference Proceedings or Special Issues.

Ensure that you have your ABSTRACT SUBMISSION number, as you will need it to complete the upload of your full paper. The abstract submission number is in the abstract acceptance letter that is sent to the corresponding author email address.

Publication Policies


We require transfer of copyright for all our publications, including conference proceedings. This allows us to distribute publications throughout the world by print and electronic means, to create translations and reuse them in reprint collections.


Papers will be reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (multiple submission). We expect authors to credit all sources used in their writings and not to represent work of others as their own. Authors found to have plagiarized the work of another are subject to having their paper removed from the conference program. Future submissions from authors found to have plagiarized will be scrutinized carefully. In the case of students found to be plagiarizing the work of others, CIMEE may inform the student’s university.

Dear Authors,

Dear CIMEE20 participants,

We would like to express, above all, our sincere gratitude and most sincere thanks to all the authors for the excellent work you have provided in this International Symposium. We appreciated the diligence and professional conscience with which you accompanied us in this process.

Publishing in an internationally renowned journal offers a better means of providing evidence of the scientific visibility of research. On the other hand, the publication of the research paper is important for the dissemination of knowledge and science and the best way to show the hard work to the international community is its publication. The Steps of Writing and Publishing Research work is proof of authentication, reliability of results and people will know how well the scientific community has excelled in a particular subject and Topic.

All of the manuscripts submitted to the Scientific Committee of the CIMEE20 International Symposium were evaluated by the members of the appointed committee and here are the selection results:

CIMEE20 CommitteeScientific committeeTechnical program CommitteeAdvisory and review committee
number of Manuscripts selected1174

I would like, on behalf of the Scientific Committee, and on my own behalf, to express our sincere thanks to Dr. Khélifi, N., Senior Publishing Editor at Springer, Africa (MENA) region

I would also like to express my gratitude to all colleagues at the Journal and particularly to Professor Chehimi M.M., Executive Editor-in-Chief of Chemistry Africa (Springer Nature) for his commitment to continue this work for more than three months in reviewing and publishing the best manuscripts.

And it is with great satisfaction that we have recorded unprecedented interest from all the members of the Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee who have worked in all stages of the selection of quality manuscripts.

We will always be at the service of all researchers in the world to welcome their research work and the presentation of their oral communication at the next edition of the International CIMEE22 colloquium as well as the publication of their scientific work in the best journals.

Yours sincerely

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to the Conference “Third International Symposium CIMEE20”

Innovative chemistry and sustainable chemistry may apply to several areas of environmental, electrochemistry and analytical Chemistry. Development of ecofriendly sustainable substances, pollution prevention and the remediation are the main concept of the Symposium.

The conference will bring together international and national representatives of universities, environmental chemistry research to explore and discuss opportunities related to innovation in chemistry and provides a sustainable solution to the environment.

More specifically, it will look at potential solutions to the environment along the value chain from advanced materials, electrochemical processes to analytical methods. The conference will also identify how the materials sciences, electrochemistry, geochemistry, can be best supported to meet the challenge of the pollution to all compartments of the environment and monitoring of emergent pollutants

A high-level expert from the Middle east, North Africa and Europe will open the conference. Regular/special sessions are informed by a series of keynote speakers, including high-level representatives from the world

An important goal of this conference is to provide networking opportunities and foster debate among up to 100 participants. The discussion will be very enriching from the submission of abstracts from over 27 countries around the world!

This Interactive exchange will take place in working groups covering the following Symposium topics:





And Special sessions/workshops:

W1. Innovative Materials: Applications for Environmental Remediation

W2.Electrochemistry: Towards sustainability in environmental remediation

W3.BioGeoChemistry for Environmental Sustainability

Workshops admission. We very much hope that you are interested in participating in an international and multidisciplinary conference. For registration to the conference, please fill in and submit the Free online Event registration Form before 10 September 2020. You will receive a confirmation within a few days of your registration.
