Conference Program
 
     
 

The WCE 2018 is organized by the International Association of Engineers (IAENG), a non-profit international association for the engineers and the computer scientists. The conference has the focus on the frontier topics in the theoretical and applied engineering and computer science subjects. The WCE conferences serve as good platforms for our members and the entire engineering community to meet with each other and to exchange ideas. Our congress committees have been formed with over three hundred committees members who are mainly research center heads, faculty deans, department heads, professors, and research scientists from over 30 countries.

WCE Best Paper Awards

The International Association of Engineers plans that there will be a Best Paper Award and Best Student Paper Award for each WCE conference. The candidate papers will be judged on originality, significance, correctness, and clarity.

 

 
 

 

The summary of submissions and accepted papers in WCE 2018 is as followed:
Total number of submissions received in WCE 2018: 528
