Paper submission instructions

WEA 2022 accept submissions for two kinds of publications:

CCIS Springer (indexed by Scopus and SCIELO) templates are available at:

Revista TECNURA Universidad Distrital (indexed in Scielo and Minciencias B rank):

Remember to choose only one format: CCIS Springer or Revista Tecnura to send your paper.

Paper submission will be handled through EasyChair, so all authors are encouraged to use our system

Only  accepted  papers  will  be  considered  for  possible  inclusion  into  the  conference  proceedings


The best three paper awards of WEA 2022 will be invited to submit extended versions of their work to the International Journal of Interactive Multimedia and Artificial Intelligence – IJIMAI (ISSN 1989 – 1660) which is an important Journal in AI. IJIMAI is indexed in Scopus, JCR and Minciencias in A2 rank.

Abstract submission instructions

An abstract is a kind of technical report in which the authors summarize their work and findings with the following characteristics:

  • An abstract summarizes preliminary findings and or results
  • An abstract can also serve as a technical report of unfinished or on-the-way projects
  • An abstract summarizes ideas that the authors want to comunnicate and present in a scientific language

WEA’22 will collect all accepted abstracts into a Book of Abstracts with ISBN and will be allocated in a permanent server location for open free access.

Topics opened for Abstract submission include (not limited to):

  • Doctoral Symposium
  • Engineering Applications (all fields and topics)
  • Computer/computational Sciences
  • Management Sciences
  • Electrical and Electronic engineering
  • Cadastrial, earth sciences
  • Software design, development and audit
  • Education and knowledge
  • Networks, grids and information systems

Please keep in mind the following instructions to submit your abstract to WEA’22:

  • All abstracts can be written in good ENGLISH or SPANISH
  • An abstract should not be shorter than 2 pages and longer than 5 pages
  • All abstracts should be formatted using the following template


  • All Abstracts must be submitted via Easychair:
