Call for Papers

Praise Worthy Prize organizes the
5th Conference on Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials VIRTUAL FORUM (CEAM-VF), in November 18th11th - December 2nd25th, 2013.

The Conference has the same topics of the International Review of Chemical Engineering - Rapid Communications (IRECHE) and International Journal on Advanced Materials and Technologies (IREAMT) and the International Steering Committee of the Conference is made up by members of the Editorial Board of IRECHE and IREAMT. The papers submitted for the Conference should respect the same rules following for a publication on IRECHE.

The best papers accepted for the Conference will be published also on a special issue of the International Review of Chemical Engineering - Rapid Communications (IRECHE) and International Journal on Advanced Materials and Technologies (IREAMT) and therefore will be abstracted on the best databases. 


Corresponding authors should indicate to which journal (IRECHE or IREAMT) likes to publish the article, if acceppted, after the end of the Conference.


The 5th CEAM-VF aims to provide an international forum for exchange of ideas and future trends amongst researchers, students, consultants and practitioners.

Industry, research, and academia are cordially invited to participate in the wealth of presentations and tutorials for the advancement of science, technology, engineering education and fellowship.
