In view of the global worries on the COVID-19 pandemic, ICSID 2020 will be an all “VIRTUAL CONFERENCE”.

The 2nd International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructural Development (ICSID 2020) presents forum for scholars, experts, governmental agencies, policy makers, industrialists, professional bodies and students for the exchange and sharing of experience and ideas on issues pertinent to sustainable infrastructural development. This conference will provide opportunities for participants to interact and present papers (virtually) on the following sub-themes:

  • Water Sanitation and Hygiene
  • Water quality, groundwater management and conservation
  • Pollution (water, air and soil), remediation

In view of the above sub-themes, original research papers should be submitted to the email: icsid2020@covenantuniversity.edu.ng. The abstract should be concise, typically containing the aim of the study, a brief statement of the method(s) used, the main results obtained/expected and conclusions drawn. It should not normally exceed 300 words and should generally be restricted to a single paragraph. It should include 3-5 keywords.

All papers submitted to the conference is expected to be within 15% similarity check. Authors are expected to obtain necessary permission for any part of the work. The full paper submission template can be downloaded from the conference website. All full papers submitted will undergo double-blind peer review processes and all accepted full papers will be published in the IOP Conference Series: Material Science and Engineering, which is indexed in the SCOPUS database as well as EI Compendex and Inspec.
