Al Azhar University is a university in Cairo which is associated with Al Azhar mosque, it’s Egypt’s oldest degree-granting university, and one of the most prestigious universities in Egypt. Studying sections were assigned inside Al Azhar University since it was established. Recently, a new sector has been introduced into Al Azhar University implying Engineering since 1964.

Al Azhar’s Engineering International Conference (AEIC) started since 1989 to be held regularly. Uniquely, the conference covers a wide range of engineering fields.

Engineering Science

 is one of the disciplines and careers in the community that specializes in studying various branches, such as; artssciencesphysicsmathematicscomputer and further engineering branches.  
Engineering Science integrates all the previously mentioned branches together in creative ways to develop new technological solutions for engineering analysis for testing, production, maintenance, and construction.

Architecture Engineering is a branch of engineering which combines artscience & technology and application of engineering principles for the development of designing, planning, and construction. Architecture is the constant innovation in designing for high-efficiency in the performance of buildings, in terms of planning, construction, and lighting, while maintaining and applying the art in its form.

Technology is applied sciences that are concerned with the study of evolution and many others such as, industryarts & crafts and all related subjects.
In Engineering, Technology aims to prepare the next generation of technical professionals in order to contribute to future developments in different technical fields.

Benefits Of Attending

Since conferences are the places where new science results are typically first presented, attending conferences organized by IEREK can be very rewarding due to below reasons:

  1. Open Discussions: You not only get to hear presentations but also converse with other researchers from different universities and even countries you may have only heard or read about.
  2. Venue: Getting an overview of the place or city where the conference is being held and learning about its people and culture.
  3. Research Technologies: Conferences also can expand your resources by providing a great opportunity to promote gathered information on new technologies related to your research. Moreover, they let you test them out, share teaching tools and techniques, or even obtain samples of textbooks.
  4. Networking: Conferences help in networking which often increases your chances of collaboration in future projects.
  5. Academic Reputation: Attending many conferences will make you a known figure in academic circles, not to mention the benefits for your C.V as it will create an impression that you are an active member of the academic community.
  6. Conference Proceedings Material: Delegates will have the choice of receiving the conference proceedings as either a hard cover book or in digital format on a USB flash drive. The USB flash drive will additionally contain proceedings from previous conferences in this series.
  7. Publication: The conference proceedings will be published by one or more international journals either by IEREK or one of its partners such as: SpringerElsevier and Taylor & Francis Group

Participation Procedures

Once an abstract is submitted, it will be sent to the reviewers' committee to go through the revision process:

  • Elementary Review:

Once an abstract has been submitted to our website, it is assigned for review by the reviewers using the abstract review sheet and validation of publication. This is based on four criteria:

· Accepted for publication (with minor editing changes).

· Conditionally accepted for publication (with revisions provided to authors).

· Rejected but encouraged for re-submission with major modifications.

· Rejected as inappropriate or unworthy of publication in this certain conference.

The criteria for accepting abstracts for the conference are as follows; a relevant topic of the conference should be proposed with clear writing, aims, and objectives of the study clearly presented, as well as a sound literature and methodology of the work.

  • First Acceptance:

Authors will receive a notification message to know the feedback of the reviewers' committee. If an author receives the acceptance of his or her abstract, he or she has to continue writing the full-length paper using the requested templates.

  • Uploading Full-Length Paper:

Authors who are allowed to upload their full-length paper(s) should use the same account details to upload their full paper(s).

  • Second Acceptance:

The final paper will proceed to the primary revision to be checked if it meets the conference proceedings standards. Once it gets accepted, the author of the paper will be informed to pay the fees so that it could be sent for the final revision by the scientific committee.

  • Payment:

In this step, and to proceed paper(s) that passed to the final revision process and to get the final approval, authors have to pay the requested fees. Otherwise, the final revision process will not be considered for their papers.

  • Inspections and Final Approval of Full Papers:

Those with full papers and who have paid the requested fees will get finally inspected, either scientifically or linguistically. There will be a rigorous review process of full papers following the previous process according to the following criteria:

(1) Is the topic relevant to the conference?

(2) Are the writing and structure clear?

(3) Are graphics, photos, illustrations used where needed?

(4) Are the aims of the study clearly stated?

(5) Are the objectives of the study achieved?

(6) Is the literature review relevant and adequate?

(7) Has the author used an appropriate methodology and has it been clearly explained?

(8) Has the author interpreted the findings correctly?

(9) Is the paper a significant contribution to the field?

These are the registration and revision procedures for publication that all authors should follow.

Plagiarism Policy

IEREK has an unyielding policy regarding plagiarism. We believe that copying/taking the ideas and work of other Authors without permission an\d 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. Duplicating any content, even if it is one sentence or one table without the consent of its original Author, will lead to the paper’s refusal upon the complaint of the plagiarism victim.

Conference Venue

Grand Nile Tower Hotel, Cairo Governorate, Egypt


IEREK will hold Al Azhar’s 14th International Conference on: Engineering, Architecture and Technology at Cairo, Egypt. Accordingly, IEREK  made prior arrangements with Journeyhop to provide all hotel solutions near the venue.

Author Instructions

Abstracts should clearly state the purpose, results, and conclusions of the work to be described in the final paper.

After you have received the acceptance of your abstract, please continue to write your full paper with the requested template (please download).


Final acceptance will be based on the full-length paper. For publication, the accepted papers must be presented at the conference.
