Conference Proceedings

All accepted papers (max. 4 pages) after the pre-conference peer-review process will be published as chapters in the conference proceedings by Springer. The registered author(s) of each accepted paper will receive a "Springer Certificate of Acceptance" certifying that the paper has been accepted for publication in the conference proceedings and also for presentation as an oral communication during the conference, if they plan to attend (see below).

The conference proceedings will be published online on 25 November 2019 at SpringerLink in the book series “Advances in Science, Technology and Innovation” (ASTI). All authors will receive a soft copy of the proceedings during the conference.

The ASTI Book Series will be submitted for indexation in Web of Science (ISI), EI-Compendex, and Scopus databases. All accepted papers in the proceedings of CAJG 2019 will be published in ASTI Book Series and made available in the SpringerLink Digital Library which is directly linked to Research Gate.

The proceedings of 1st Conference of the Arabian Journal of Geosciences (1st CAJG) was published in 10 volumes in ASTI book series in November 2018. It gives a general and brief overview on current research focusing on emerging geosciences topics . It contains over 700 carefully refereed short contributions to the conference. The 1st CAJG proceedings is now submitted for indexation in the Web of Science:

Note that only authors of accepted papers in the conference proceedings (after the pre-conference peer review process) and who will register before the deadline of 15 September 2019 will be allowed to present during the conference sessions (see Important Dates and Registration). If you are not sure whether you or one of your co-authors will be able to attend the conference, you should bear in mind that there is a fee to be paid before the deadline of 15 August 2019 to cover the editorial handling and evaluation of your paper before publication in the conference proceedings. The accepted paper will not be included in the conference proceedings without paying the fee (see Registration for more details). If you decide to attend the conference afterward, the paid amount will be deduced from your total registration fee.

Oral Communications

There are two types of oral communications: a PowerPoint (PPT) presentation of 15 min or an e-Poster presentation of 7 min (using a large HD screen). The type chosen will depend on the author’s stated preference and the decision of the scientific committee.


During the conference the best paper selected from each conference track (15 papers in total), as judged by the scientific committee, will receive awards (see Conference Tracks).

Decisions are based on the following criteria:

  • Originality and newness of contribution
  • Appropriate application of methodology
  • Effective communication of the central ideas of the work
  • Usefulness of research in resolving environmental problem(s)

The 15 winning authors will receive the “Springer Award for Outstanding Paper,” a gift voucher for the amount of 300 euros which can be used to purchase books on SpringerLink, and also a Springer bag personalized with the 2nd CAJG logo and an advertising message “Winner of the best conference paper at the 2nd CAJG – Tunisia 2019.” All winners will be presented with a commemorative certificate and will be acknowledged during the awards luncheon (Day 3 in the Conference Program).

The most active reviewers and editors will also receive Springer / CAJG awards and certificates of appreciations, and will be acknowledged during the awards luncheon. 

Special Issues

The conference aims to publish after the conference high-quality topical collections (special issues) on cross-cutting themes of environmental sciences in the Arabian Journal of Geosciences.

Some selected high-quality papers will be also submitted after the conference for publication in regular or special issues of the following Springer journals.

Authors of the selected papers will be notified on 30 December 2019 to start preparing an extended version of their papers for submission in one of the special issues.

All papers will be peer-reviewed by the editors of each journal before final acceptance for publication. Authors of the accepted papers will receive a "Springer Acceptance Certificate" after publication of the special issues.

Arabian Journal of Geosciences
(Impact Factor = 0.860)

After the conference, the scientific committee aims to publish a set of high-quality topical collections (special issues) on cross-cutting themes of earth and environmental sciences in the Arabian Journal of Geosciences (AJGS). Authors of the selected (short) papers will be invited after the conference to submit an extended version of their papers for evaluation by AJGS editors before publication.


SN Applied Sciences

SN Applied Sciences

Springer (a part of Springer Nature), the organizing partner of the 2nd Conference of the Arabian Journal of Geosciences, and the editors of its new journal SN Applied Sciences aim to select before the conference a set of high-quality short proceedings papers. Authors of the selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers for evaluation by SN Applied Sciences editors before publication in the prestigious inaugural volume of 2018.

SN Applied Sciences is one of the first Springer Nature imprinted journals. Springer Nature shaped for this journal a strategy that aims for the highest international visibility through various marketing and promotion channels. Authors will enjoy a free submission (no colour or page charges) and a rapid publication of their submitted papers. Readers will enjoy a free access for the first two years. The journal aims to foster a strong international interdisciplinary applied science content to a wide readership, to present sound science discovery and to solve practical problems in an innovative way. Springer Nature plans to start an efficient strategy that allows this journal a quick indexation. In this regard, once the first articles are published the journal will be submitted for indexation in several prestigious abstracting and indexing databases.
