Submission Guidelines for Authors

1. Language

All submissions should be written in English.


2. Presentation & Publication

1-page abstract-only papers will be included from the presentation sessions, but excluded from the proceedings. Only full accepted papers will be published in the proceedings.

The minimum number of pages per paper is 4 pages for all contributions.

The maximum number of pages per paper is 30 pages for keynote speakers.

The maximum number of pages per paper is 25 pages for regular contributions.


4. Academic Integrity

Authors have a responsibility to present work that is truly their own. Cheating and plagiarizing the work of others are serious offenses that undermine the spirit of truth in all areas of research. APEE is utterly intolerant of plagiarism. Submitted papers are expected to contain original work executed by the authors with adequate, proper and scholarly citations to the work of others. It is the job of the authors to clearly identify both their own contribution(s) and also published results / techniques on which they depend or build.


5. Submission

Authors must prepare their papers using Microsoft Word or LaTeX, according to the Template and then Email the manuscript(s) to ICAPEE@163.com.

When you typeset your manuscript(s), please ensure the following:

l Paper size is European A4.

l Margins are 4cm (top), 2.5cm (left and right) and 2.7cm (bottom).

l The paper includes the author name and affiliation (full address including country).

l There are no page numbers, or headers and footers, within the paper.

l The PDF is free of formatting errors (e.g. corrupt equations, missing or low-resolution figures), since conversion from Word to PDF can introduce formatting errors.

l Text is single spaced, not double spaced.

l The PDF file is editable and not password protected.

l All pages are portrait (landscape pages should be rotated).

l Reference lists are checked for accuracy. References can only be linked via Crossref if they are correct and complete.

l A thorough proofread is conducted to check the standard of English and ensure wording is clear and concise.

With the popularity of the COVID-19 vaccine, we will live a normal life. At the same time, unlike the online conference of the 3rd APEE, the 4th APEE conference has a great possibility to be held as a face-to-face physical conference.


We would like to invite you to contribute to and participate in the 4th International Conference on Air Pollution and Environmental Engineering (APEE 2021), which will be held in Xi'an City, China during September 25-26, 2021


Air pollution has become a major issue in China and other developing countries, it could become the biggest health threat. APEE 2021 is a platform for presenting excellent results and new challenges facing the field of the air pollution and environmental engineering. It brings together experts from industry, governments and academia, experienced in engineering, technology and research. To promote environmental protection and green sustainable development all over the world.


We appreciate that if you disseminate this flyer to your friends, colleagues, disciples and others who might interests to APEE 2021. Accepted papers which meet the Conference Requirements would be published in Conference Proceedings and submitted to EI (Compendex), CPCI (ISTP), Scopus for indexing. Looking forward to seeing you at APEE 2021 in September 2021 in Xi’an.

Best Paper Awards

A Best Paper presentation will be selected from each oral session based on the score of the Technical Session Chair. The Certificate for Best Paper Presentation will be awarded during the conference.

Peer Review Policy

By submitting a paper to APEE 2021, the authors agree to the review process and understand that papers undergo a peer-review process. Manuscripts will be reviewed by appropriately qualified experts in the field selected by the Conference Committee, who will give detailed comments and-if the submission gets accepted-the authors submit a revised version that takes into account this feedback. All papers are reviewed using a double-blind review process: authors declare their names and affiliations in the manuscript for the reviewers to see, but reviewers do not know each other's identities, nor do the authors receive information about who has reviewed their manuscript. The Committees of APEE 2021 invest great efforts in reviewing the papers submitted to the conference and organizing the sessions to enable the participants to gain maximum benefit.


APEE conference is requested to adhere to the following minimum standards:

l Unbiased consideration is given to all papers offered for publication in the proceedings regardless of race, gender, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship or political philosophy of the authors.

l No terminology shall be used that, in the opinion of the Press, is offensive or might be perceived to be offensive to others.

l Authors and Editors agree to comply with our ethical policy, and understand that the Press has the right to investigate any suspicions and/or allegations of misconduct relating to published proceedings.

l Conference papers shall meet all the usual standards of quality for the publication. However, referees shall take into account the conference nature of the papers and so consider background papers more favorably than would be normal for a regular paper. These allowances shall not go so far as to approve papers of low scientific standard or papers that have been published in written form elsewhere. Review papers are also welcomed and accepted.

l Reviewers shall give a clear statement of recommendation for each paper and supply comments to support their recommendation suitable for transmission to the author.

l Editors and Organizers shall only accept papers where there is clear support from the reviewers


Reviewers should consider the following key points related to scientific content, quality and presentation of the papers:

Technical Criteria

l Scientific merit: notably scientific rigour, accuracy and correctness.

l Clarity of expression; communication of ideas; readability and discussion of concepts.

l Sufficient discussion of the context of the work, and suitable referencing.

Quality Criteria

l Originality: Is the work relevant and novel?

l Motivation: Does the problem considered have a sound motivation? All papers should clearly demonstrate the scientific interest of the results.

l Repetition: Have significant parts of the manuscript already been published?

l Length: Is the content of the work of sufficient scientific interest to justify its length?

Presentation Criteria

l Title: Is it adequate and appropriate for the content of the article?

l Abstract: Does it contain the essential information of the article? Is it complete? Is it suitable for inclusion by itself in an abstracting service?

l Diagrams, figures, tables and captions: Are they essential and clear?

l Text and mathematics: Are they brief but still clear? If you recommend shortening, please suggest what should be omitted.

l Conclusion: Does the paper contain a carefully written conclusion, summarizing what has been learned and why it is interesting and useful?

January 25, 2021: Call for reviewers in the area of air pollution, environmental engineering and science.

January 25, 2021: The organizing committee of APEE 2021 has confirmed and scholars in relevant research fields are welcome to contribute.

September 30, 2020: APEE 2020 was successfully held ONLINE during Sep. 28-29, 2020.
