Update. Publish in Water

The Protections 2022 Organizing Committee would like to present you the opportunity to publish your Protections 2022 paper in the scientific journal Water (IF 3.530, ISSN 2073-4441).

Professors Miguel Ángel Toledo and Rafael Morán are Guest Editors of the Special Issue (SI) Dam Safety. Protection against Overtopping and Prevention of Geo-Structural Failure. Those interested in this possibility will have to adapt the Protections 2022 manuscript to the journal template and send it specifying that you are sending it to this SI. This will automatically assign a 20% discount on the Article Processing Charges (APC) if the paper is finally accepted. Please note that this discount is conditioned upon registration at the conference. These papers will be peer-reviewed following the journal process. If accepted, you will be able to present your work at Protections 2022 in Madrid between the 30th of November and the 2nd of December 2022.

Those authors that have already sent the P2022 full paper and prefer to resubmit their paper via Water instead, should inform the P2022 Organizing Committee in the next few days, preferably before July 15. If we do not receive any response, we assume you prefer to follow the traditional P2022 peer-review process without cost.

You can download the Special Issue flyer and presentation here.

Instructions for Authors

The author guarantees that the paper is an original work, has not been published previously, is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that any necessary permissions to quote from another source or include graphics or images have been obtained. Further, the author declares that any person named as co-author of the contribution is aware of the fact and has agreed to be so named.

The Protections 2022 papers will be peer-reviewed; all accepted papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings. The Proceedings will be published after the Conference. The Local Organizing Committee of Protections 2022 will share additional information about the publishing formats as soon as possible. The deadlines for submission, peer-review, and acceptance can be consulted here.

Failure to present the paper at the conference will result in the withdrawal of the paper from the published Proceedings. The program distributed at the Conference may contain your paper, but that is not the official publication and cannot be cited in other literature unless it has been presented. Please be sure to attend and orally present your paper or have a co-author do so.
