The 2nd Al-Noor International Conference for Science and Technology (2NICST2020)

August 28-29, 2020


The Second Al-Noor International Conference for Science and Technology (2NICST2020) is the annual international scientific conference that includes three main streams. The first one is engineering, the Science stream is the second, and the last stream is Agricultural; it includes a variety of topics in these three streams. The conference was supposed to be held in the city of Baku / Azerbaijan, on August 24-30, 2020. It was planned to have tours in Baku, but due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the conference was held online using the virtual conference application (Zoom APP) on August 28-29, 2020.
The conference committees received 229 papers, 163 papers were accepted, and 66 papers were rejected. The research papers participating in the conference were published in eight journals.
They are Conference Proceedings, two engineering journals (JGE and JMERD), four journals within the disciplines of applied and pure sciences (IEEE Iraq Section, IJS, BCA, and Journal of Physics (IOP)), and one journal for Agricultural Science (PA). Most of the researchers received acceptance from journals before the date of the conference, and this was the main goal of the conference committees.
Three governmental universities supported the conference, The University of Baghdad, The University of Mosul, and The University of Diyala. In addition to a private college, the Al-Maerifa University College. The conference committees attempted to open up prospects for cooperation with all universities in the conference activities by selecting session chairs and keynote speakers from them. The conference opening ceremony was distinctive on the first and second days by inviting six keynote speakers from Egypt, Sweden, Britain, and Iraq.
To evaluate the performance of the committees and the conference activities in general, the conference committees organized a questionnaire. The questionnaire was published during the two days of the conference. It included thirty-two questions about the conference committees and activities. There were 149 researchers and attendees who participated in the questionnaire. The questionnaire results showed that 89% of the participations evaluation of conference committees’ performance and conference activities were between good and excellent, while the others were poor. This is clear evidence of the success of the conference.
To open up prospects for cooperation with universities and to achieve the best results globally, the conference committees invited all Universities (governmental and private), Scientific Institutions, and Researchers to participate in the activities of the Third Al-Noor International Conference for Science and Technology (3NICST2021), which will be held in Muscat – Oman on August 1st-7th, 2021.
