Additional InformationPlans for Expansion & Future Directions:
The IPWEAQ Knowledge Centre has seen a sharp increase in usage over the last 12 months. While it's primary role is to be the first site of publishing for papers, articles and proceeding from various conferences, the intention going forward is to also act as an intermediary space, intersecting with academic engineering journals and advocating on behalf of our contributors for wider publication opportunities within those journals.
