Paper submission guide:

  • All papers shall be submitted online through (or use button below)
  • All papers shall be in the required format – a template is provided
  • When submitting full paper, please submit using the SAME PAPER NUMBER as your abstract submission. If you submitted your abstract as a file attachment, simply REPLACE the abstract file with the paper file. Failure to follow this instruction may result in your paper submission being ‘lost’; the paper number assigned to your abstract is the paper number we will use for all correspondence.
  • Peer review and publication will be conducted on a rolling basis. Earlier submission will result in earlier peer review. Once peer review is complete, accepted papers will be published immediately. Thus, earlier submission should result in your paper being available in print before or during the conference.
  • Submissions received closer to the 1 June 2023 deadline may not be fully peer-reviewed prior to the conference and will only be published once review and revision is complete. So, get your submissions in EARLY.
  • All peer review will take place on the platform.

Once papers are accepted…

  • At least one co-author must register for CICE 2023, committing to present the paper. Papers will not be published without confirmation of registration. Registered authors are limited to presenting two papers at the conference.
  • Papers will be posted at the permanent proceedings website:
  • Each paper will receive its own unique DOI
  • All papers will be posted as Open Access under the terms of Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (
  • Any paper that is accepted and scheduled but not presented at the conference will be placed in ‘closed access’ status, removing it from public access and indexing.

Publication ethics:

CICE 2023 adheres to the guidance of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and expects all authors to do so too. By submitting a paper to CICE 2023, authors are attesting that the paper has not been published elsewhere or is in consideration for publication elsewhere. Any violations of COPE guidance will result in authors being excluded from the conference and published papers being formally retracted [retraction notice and watermark added to all instances of paper].
