11th International Conference on Urban Drainage Modelling
23-26 Sep 2018 – Palermo, Italy

Authors are invited to submit first a 4-page (no more and no less in length) extended abstract which will follow the instruction provided in the Abstract Template. To be accepted for the Conference, the submissions must report work that is novel, well described, and suited to the Conference themes. Submissions must contain original data and meet international ethical standards.

Selection criteria include high technical quality, relevance to the conference themes, and significant information content. Papers for accepted abstracts must be prepared by adopting the Paper Template.

On the basis of the submitted extended abstracts, a review will be undertaken to select the best extended abstracts for oral presentation or poster presentation. All selected accepted extended abstracts will be published in the proceeding book. 

For those authors, that will send the Copyright transfer available at the UDM website, accepted extended abstracts will be published in the Springer book Green Energy and Technology (indexed in Scopus).

On voluntary basis authors of accepted extended abstracts are invited to prepare a full paper which should be submitted on 1 August via easychair (EasyChair web site).

After the peer-review process, the highest quality full papers will be selected and authors will receive an invitation to submit manuscripts for publication in one of the following journals (see Special Issue details): Journal of Environmental Management, Journal of Hydrology, Urban Water Journal, Environmental Science and Pollution Research, Water Practice and Technology, Water Science and Technology, Water Science and Technology: Water Supply.

The acceptance of a full paper for conference presentation does not guarantee subsequent acceptance for journal publication, the final decision on journal publication lies with the journals’ Editor-in-Chief. Any copyright transfer will be necessary to provide for full papers.

Your full paper will need to be at least 50% different from the extended abstract.

At least one author of each selected paper must register and attend the conference to present the paper (poster or platform presentation). Multiple abstracts can be referred to one author.

We are using the “EasyChair” site to manage full paper submissions and reviews.
