The scientific committee of the Cairo Water Week 2022 invites researchers from all over the world who wish to present their work during the technical sessions of CWW2022 to submit the following:

  • Abstracts
  • Full Papers (upon acceptance of abstracts)

The CWW2022 features a wide range of opportunities for discussions, networking, and exchange of knowledge on the aforementioned five themes and sub-themes.

In addition, the scientific committee will nominate highly qualified
and innovative research materials for publication in highly recognized
journals.

Guidelines for Submitting Abstracts

Manuscript Format
Manuscripts should be submitted in one-column word format using a consistently American spelling style. Research Articles should be no more than 8000 words. All manuscripts should, however, be carefully edited to eliminate redundancy. In particular, similar data should not be presented in both figures and tables. The manuscript has been ‘spell checked’ and ‘grammar checked’
A complete manuscript should include the following: title, abstract, keywords, introduction, methodology, results, discussion (or results and discussion), conclusions, acknowledgments, and references.
Manuscripts should be divided into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, …), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to ‘the text’. Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.

Title. Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.

Author names and affiliations. Please clearly indicate the given name(s) and family name(s) of each author and check that all names are accurately spelled. You can add your name between parentheses in your own script behind the English transliteration. Present the authors’ affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author’s name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name and, if available, the e-mail address of each author.

Abstract and Keywords. The abstract should contain concise, factual information on objectives, methods, results, and conclusions. Opinions, obscure terms, and jargon should be avoided. Abstract length should be less than 500 words. The line below the abstract should contain a maximum of 5 keywords (<256 characters each), listed in order of importance, that identify the main points in the manuscript.

Main Manuscript Body. The body of the text should begin with an introduction, which should include citations of published related work to assess previous research and identify the gap(s) in knowledge, as well as a statement of the objective(s) of the work.
Sections on Methodology, Results, Discussion (or combined Results and Discussion), and Conclusions should then be included. An Acknowledgment section should follow the Conclusions, which may include any credits for funding or assistance in the study. No figures and tables should be included within the manuscript file.

Figures. Figures in file formats: EPS, PS, JPEG, TIFF are acceptable and should be inserted on Microsoft Word (DOC or DOCX) files. Each figure should be saved as a separate Microsoft Word file and identified with a figure number e.g. (Figure 1.doc, Figure 2 .doc, …etc.)
Figures should be high quality (1200 dpi for line art, 600 dpi for grayscale, and 300 dpi for color, at the correct size).

Tables. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place footnotes to tables below the table body and indicate them with superscript lowercase letters. Avoid vertical rules. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article. In general, do not use abbreviations in the titles of tables or in the row and column headings. If abbreviations are unavoidable in some cases, they must be defined in notes directly beneath each table. It is essential that all tables can ‘stand-alone’ without requiring a reader to refer to the text of the manuscript for explanations or definitions. Each table should be saved as a separate Microsoft Word file and identified with a table number e.g. (Table 1.doc, Table 2 .doc, …etc.)

Equations. should be numbered separately and sequentially throughout the text. All variables and special symbols, such as Greek letters, must be clearly identified and explained, and units of measurement provided. Equation editor should be used.

References. should be prepared according to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (7th edition).
Text: All citations in the text should refer to:
1. Single author: the author’s name (without initials, unless there is ambiguity) and the year of publication;
2. Two authors: both authors’ names and the year of publication;
3. Three or more authors: first author’s name followed by ‘et al.’ and the year of publication.
Citations may be made directly (or parenthetically). Groups of references can be listed either first alphabetically, then chronologically, or vice versa.
Examples: ‘as demonstrated (Allan, 2000a, 2000b, 1999; Allan and Jones, 1999)…. Or, as demonstrated (Jones, 1999; Allan, 2000)… Kramer et al. (2010) have recently shown …’
List: References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters ‘a’, ‘b’, ‘c’, etc., placed after the year of publication.
