Annual International Conference on Emerging Research Areas


Amal Jyothi College of Engineering, Kanjirapally has been organizing a series of International conferences AICERA (Annual International Conference on Emerging Research Areas) since 2011. Specific conferences are held under the parent AICERA umbrella, the theme varying every year.

Past conferences held were:
  • AICERA-2017 : International Conference on Emerging Areas in Materials
  • AICERA-2016 : International Conference on Innovations in Structural
  • AICERA-2015 : Manufacturing & Materials Engineering
  • The 2018 edition, being organized by the Department of Chemical Engineering, has evolved into the International Conference on INNOVATIONS IN CHEMICAL ENGINEERING (ICICE). The conference aims at exploring the gamut of recent innovations in the emerging fields of chemical engineering.

    Scope of the Conference

    ICICE is an international conference with the aim to provide a platform for exchange of ideas and recent research works in the field of Chemical Engineering. Experts from Process Industries, are expected to attend the conference making it a truly productive one. The three day event will provide exposure to erudite work by researchers in this field. It also facilitates interaction among academicians, engineers from industry and research scholars. Sessions on the sideline will discuss recent advances, challenges, breakthroughs and research innovations on various aspects of Chemical , Environmental, Energy and Materials Engineering. The Conference features invited talks, paper presentations on current technologies. An innovation challenge to showcase the ideas of the budding researchers and entrepreneurs among the Chemical Engineering is also planned.

    Conference topics

    While the Conference will broadly operate in three tracks – Industry, technology and environment, the actual proceedings will be conducted on more diversified sub tracks, depending on the volume of papers being presented. While submission related to the essential topics (listed below) is encouraged, it does not deter prospective authors from delving into other related areas.

    • Smart Materials/Biomaterials/ Shape Memory Alloys
    • Nanomaterials/Novel Materials
    • Ferroelectric/Multiferroic/Electronic Materials
    • Ceramics/ Composites/High Temperature Materials
    • Photonic/Photovoltaic Materials
    • Low Dimensional Systems/Carbon nanostructures/Graphene
    • Thin Films/ Interfaces
    • Polymers/Conducting Polymers/Organic Materials
    • Superconductors/Spintronics/Magnetics
    • Environmental Issues/Green Materials
    • Energy Harvesting Materials/New Gen Materials
    • Materials Characterization/ Novel techniques
    • Computational methods/Modeling
