CEST Proceedings and publication of papers

Our conference is peer-reviewed. All the papers that are selected for either oral or poster presentation undergo a review process. CEST series proceedings have been included in databases, such as Science Citation Index (ISI) and since 2015, most of the presented papers are also published in cooperating journals – in special issues.

Proceedings of 2021 will be published in the Springer ASTI Book Series (indexed in Scopus):

The proceedings of our previous event have also been accepted for publication in the Springer ASTI Book Series. They are in press and we expect to have the book published in a couple of months.

Papers presented in CEST2021, will be submitted for review in the cooperating journals for inclusion in special issues after the normal peer review process of the journals. More information is available at
