Water lies at the heart of adaptation to climate change and serves as a crucial link between climate systems, human society, and the environment. It is a finite and irreplaceable resource that is fundamental to human well-being. Various necessary adaptation measures that deal with climate change have the potential to create resilience to climate change and enhance water security. Sustainable governance of available surface and groundwater resources is key to solving water problems.

To achieve water sustainability, we must promote the restoration and protection of freshwater ecosystems. This can involve measures such as reducing pollution, implementing sustainable land use practices, and creating protected areas for aquatic species. Additionally, we must adapt to the climate change crisis by improving water efficiency, investing in water infrastructure, and developing new water sources. This can involve measures such as implementing water reuse and recycling programs, upgrading water treatment facilities, and investing in desalination technologies.

Analysis of river basin scale adaptation is also critical for water management, as it involves assessing the impacts of climate change on water resources and developing strategies to manage these impacts. We must take a holistic and integrated approach to water management, including improving water governance, establishing regulations for water use, and providing funding for water infrastructure. By engaging stakeholders from different sectors and levels of government, as well as local communities, we can develop effective water resource policies that promote sustainable water use and ensure that water resources are managed for the benefit of all.

Step 2.1: Abstract Acceptance

  • After acceptance of your abstract of at least (150 – 300 words), you will receive a proforma invoice and specific instructions to complete the payment online or by bank transfer (See Conference Fees) to confirm your participation,
  • Once your abstract has been accepted, please refer to the important dates tab and carefully review the announced dates to avoid late payment, as late payment comes at an extra charge (early bird/regular/late).
  • After successfully completing payment, you will be issued upon request with the following:
    • A signed/ stamped abstract acceptance letter
    • Please note that acceptance of participation, abstract submission, and extended abstract/short paper submissions all have different deadlines. To stay up to date and avoid paying extra fees, or delaying your paper, please carefully review the important dates tab.
    • Receipt of Payment/ Payment Invoice
    • Visa Invitation Letter, if needed
  • After abstract acceptance, you may be given the option to extend the abstract to publish your work in the conference proceedings in ASTI published by Springer Nature (indexed in Scopus/SCImago) (optional not obligatory).

    This is not a prerequisite for presenting your work at the conference. Meaning, you can present your submitted abstract without intending to publish your work.

Step 2.2: Abstract Extension / Short Paper (Optional)

  • Your short paper / extended abstract should be 4 – 6 pages long and submitted before the paper submission deadline, in English, and fit within one of the conference topics.
  • The Extended abstract i.e., the short paper should follow the research paper structure as follows: Abstract (+keywords), Introduction, problem statement, and study aim, Review of the Literature, Methodology, results and conclusion/ discussion, References list using the Paper Writing Template.
  • The submission (short paper i.e. extended abstract) should be made following the same procedure followed for the abstract or sent to the conference email.
  • Here: Authors may need more pages than the allotted maximum of 6 to insert figures, tables, appendixes, etc. In this case, they can submit regular papers (max. 12 pages) with the same fixed fee. For a detailed outline of the fees, please refer to the payment table in the conference fees tab.
  • The conference does welcome Arabic submissions (with abstracts written in the english language), which will only be considered for publication in BAHETH by IEREK Press.

Step 3: Rigorous Peer Review Process (double-blind)

This process can only be initiated after payment completion and confirmation:

  • If submitted, the extension (short paper) will be preliminarily checked (iThenticate plagiarism/ similarity screening Software, readability, and scope) and it will be peer-reviewed. If similarity issues are detected, the following will apply:
    • % from all sources: 10-15%
    • % from one source: 3-5%
    • Higher than 30% (all sources): Reject completely
    • Lower than 30% (all sources): Ask for revision to decrease the similarities
  • IEREK has an unyielding policy regarding plagiarism. We believe that copying/ taking the ideas and work of other Authors without permission and credit is fraudulent. The Reviewing committee and IEREK employees have the authority to reject a paper during its reviewing process, on the basis of the paper being subjected to either minor or major plagiarism.
  • Each paper/ chapter is evaluated by a minimum of two reviewers, after which a final decision by the responsible Editor is made. There is no maximum to the number of times a paper can be reviewed, depending on the quality of the submission.
  • If your short paper is accepted by the Editors for publishing with comments/ requested modifications, our Editors (publishing department) will contact you once a decision is made and you will be asked to revise and correct it. After resubmission, it will be re-checked. Note: There may be more than one round of peer review and the decision rests with the editors of the title. Missed deadlines may result in complete exclusion/ rejection from the final publication.
  • If your short paper is accepted for publishing without edits/ comments, the corresponding author will be contacted to provide the final version of their chapters/ papers following Springer Guidelines and sign the Springer consent-to-publish (CTP) form to authorize publication in the conference proceedings.
  • A back-and-forth process: modifications will be sent back to the responsible Editor/ Series Editor and another round of evaluation conducted where needed. Participants/ Authors should regularly check their emails (Junk/ Spam folders).
  • If you are not interested in publishing an extended abstract in the proceedings in ASTI by Springer Nature, please inform the conference support (

Step 4: Extended paper 

  • After the conference, the authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their research, 8 – 12+ pages in length, (optional) of their short papers for publishing in an edited volume to be published by Springer Nature.
  • Publishing your short paper (i.e., extended abstract) in the conference proceedings does not prevent the submission of the full version for publishing consideration after the conference if the similarity percentages (SR%) in Step 3 are taken into account.
