Upholding the principles of transparency, efficiency and fairness, ICSeB focuses on providing impetus for disseminating knowledge and technologies worldwide by performing its obligations as conference organizer.

For those who wish to join a scholarly conference, to a large extent, they wish their work could be involved in the conference proceedings, be published and be able to read by more audiences in the scientific research communities. As proceedings publication becomes one of the major considerations for a successful conference, we furnish guidelines for authors and reviewers, describing how paper and abstract will be handled after submission. The organizers and all committee members of ICSeB encourage you to contribute your latest work to this conference.
