Selection, Presentation and Publication of Papers PDF Print E-mail


Extended abstracts and full papers must be submitted in English. Summaries should contain sufficient information about the problem, methodology and original new results.

There will be oral and poster presentations of contributed papers in each session. All contributed papers will be evaluated and accepted for presentation based on 3 to 4 pages of extended abstracts. Final decision concerning oral versus poster will be made according to author's selection and session topics. The oral presentations will be chosen to highlight a specific subject within a session theme, and not necessarily for their scientific quality. The number of oral presentations will therefore be more limited in number to provide more time for posters.

Authors may also present their most recent work, or work in progress, as a poster without having to write a paper. There will be a special session for recent-work posters.

Keynote lecture abstracts, extended paper abstracts and recent-work poster abstracts, will be included in a book which will be available on site. All keynote lectures and full papers will be published by Begell House Inc. in a Proceedings volume and will be available in the form of a CD-ROM. The papers will also be published online in Begell House's Electronic Data Center. A sample extended abstract and full-text paper in the required format and further information can be found on this Web site.

A selection of papers presented at the meeting will be published after the meeting in four Begell House Journals, in accordance with authors' selections. They are:

Heat Transfer Research

Clean Air: International Journal on Energy for a Clean Environment

Journal of Enhanced Heat Transfer

Computational Thermal Sciences

A welcome reception, a gala dinner, an accompanying persons' program and optional guided tours to historical sites will be arranged. A choice of one-day and two-days post-conference tours to Tunis-Carthage-Sidi Bou Said, Kairouan-Sousse-ElJem and Tozeur-Matmata-Oasis will be arranged, subject to there being a sufficient number of participants.
