ICKIE: International Conference on Knowledge and Innovation Engineering

Conference Objectives

The ICKIE: International Conference on Knowledge and Innovation Engineering aims to bring together leading academic scientists, professors, researchers, students and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of Knowledge and Innovation Engineering. It also provides the premier interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field of Knowledge and Innovation Engineering.

Call for Contributions

All honourable authors are kindly encouraged to contribute to and help shape the conference through submissions of their research abstracts, papers and e-posters. Also, high quality research contributions describing original and unpublished results of conceptual, constructive, empirical, experimental, or theoretical work in all areas of Knowledge and Innovation Engineering are cordially invited for presentation at the conference. The conference solicits contributions of abstracts, papers and e-posters that address themes and topics of the conference, including figures, tables and references of novel research material.

Conference Proceedings

All submitted conference papers will be blind peer reviewed by competent reviewers. The post conference proceedings will be published in the Information Science Index and submitted to be indexed in the Thomson Reuters, CiteSeerX, Google Books and Google Scholar, EBSCO, SCOPUS, ERA and ProQuest. The conference proceedings book & CD and certificate of presentation will be distributed to the conference participants at the conference registration desk. 

Special Journal Issues

The conference has teamed up with the Special Journal Issue. A number of selected high-impact full text papers will also be considered for the special journal issues. All submitted papers will have opportunities for consideration for this Special Journal Issue. The paper selection will be carried out during the peer review process as well as at the conference presentation stage. Submitted papers must not be under consideration by any other journal or publication. The final decision for paper selection will be made based on peer review reports by the Guest Editors and the Editor-in-Chief jointly. Excellent papers will be published on SCI and EI journals. Selected full text papers will be online published as free of charge.
