POST CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS

 

During the week of June 1st - 5th, 2020 over 150 research papers were presented at the IConETech-2020. The entire five-day marathon took place virtually and facilitated discussions between academics and industrial practitioners on some of the most pertinent problems facing the region and wider world. The full-length papers of the research works presented at the conference spans over six extensive themes. Each selected paper for publication in the post conference proceedings has now been given a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) and is available in the corresponding link in the table below. For referencing of paper(s) the following information can be used.
