All authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit an extended version (short conference paper of a max. of 4 pages) for evaluation. All accepted short papers after the pre-conference peer-review process will be published as chapters in the conference proceedings by Springer. The registered author(s) of each accepted paper will receive a "Springer Certificate of Acceptance" certifying that the paper has been accepted for publication in the conference proceedings.
The proceedings of the 3rd EMCEI will be published online on 31 December 2021 by Springer. All authors will receive a soft copy of the proceedings shortly after online publication.

During the conference the best paper selected from each conference track (13 papers in total), as judged by the scientific committee, will receive awards (see Conference Tracks).
Decisions are based on the following criteria:
- Originality and newness of contribution
- Appropriate application of methodology
- Effective communication of the central ideas of the work
- Usefulness of the research in resolving environmental problem(s)
The 13 winning authors will receive the “Springer Award for Outstanding Paper,” a gift voucher for the amount of 300 euros which can be used to purchase books on SpringerLink, and also a Springer bag personalized with the 3rd EMCEI logo and an advertising message “Winner of the best conference paper at the 3rd EMCEI – Tunisia 2021.” All winners will be presented with a commemorative certificate and will be acknowledged during the awards luncheon (Day 5 in the Conference Program ).
The most active reviewers and editors will also receive Springer / EMCEI awards and certificates of appreciations and will be acknowledged during the awards luncheon.
After the conference, the 3rd EMCEI scientific committee aims to publish high-quality topical collections (special issues) on cross-cutting themes from the earth and environmental sciences in the Euro-Mediterranean Journal for Environmental Integration and other Springer journals.
Authors of the selected papers will be notified on to start preparing an extended version of their proceedings papers or accepted (short) abstracts (not extended/published in the proceedings) for submission in one of the EMCEI special issues.
All papers will be peer-reviewed by the Editors of each journal before final acceptance for publication. Authors of the accepted papers will receive a "Springer Acceptance Certificate" after publication of the special issue.
