Federated Conference

Federated conference series is an event that brings together significant number of recurring events; academic conferences, symposia, workshops, special sessions, and plenary talks in the field of science and technology since inception in 1999. Each event may run over any span of time within the conference days.

Conference Proceedings

All submitted conference papers will be blind peer reviewed by three competent reviewers. The peer-reviewed conference proceedings are indexed in the International Science Index (ISI), Google Scholar, Semantic Scholar, Zenedo, OpenAIRE, BASE, WorldCAT, Sherpa/RoMEO, and other index databases. The conference abstracts and proceedings book, CD and certificate of presentation will be distributed to participants at the conference registration desk. Impact Factor Indicators.

Special Journal Issues

ICAMT 2017 has teamed up with the Special Journal Issue on Agricultural Machines and Technology. A number of selected high-impact full text papers will also be considered for the special journal issues. All submitted papers will have the opportunity to be considered 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.
