ICPER 2020

About the conference

It is our great honour to invite you to join the 7th International Conference on Production, Energy and Reliability (ICPER 2020) which will be held virtually online from 13-15 July 2021 due to COVID 19 pandemic. This conference is organized under the umbrella of World Engineering, Science and Technology Congress (ESTCON), Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS since 2010.

The International Conference on Production, Energy and Reliability (ICPER) 2020 is organized by the Mechanical Engineering Department. This conference aims to gather researchers and industry practitioners to share new ideas, research results and development experiences towards sustainable Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0). This era of digitisation will cause disruption to the production and manufacturing landscape. ICPER 2020 will discuss on the impacts of this disruption and how the industry can utilise new technology such as autonomous systems in manufacturing, advanced energy management and renewable energy as well as the implementation of big data analytics to monitor production lines.

Technical program

Accepted papers are organized in parallel tracks of oral and poster presentation sessions. Interested participants are invited to submit their full paper through the EDAS system at the following link: https://edas.info/N26719

All accepted and presented papers of ICPER 2020 will have the opportunity to be published in one of the ISI/SCOPUS-indexed journals/books listed below. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their manuscript for publication in these journals.

The paper selection will be carried out during the peer review process, as well as at the paper presentation stage. The full paper format for the selected papers is based on the respective journal’s format. Submitted papers must not be under consideration by any other journals or publications. All papers submitted will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process. The final decision for paper selection will be made jointly, based on the peer review reports, by the Guest Editors and the Editor-in-Chief.

Additional publication fees apply for certain journals.
