ICBEST is a worldwide forum for building envelope architecture and engineering. It provides information exchange, networking, and discussions of recent developments and their application thus bridging the gap between architects, designers, engineers, manufacturers, and researchers. During the industry exhibition, top international companies will be showcasing products and technology solutions of interest to conference attendees.
To emphasis on the importance of collaborative research needs, the theme of the conference will be “Interdisciplinary perspectives for future building envelopes”. We welcome academics, practicing architects, engineers, building construction contractors, administrators, and students to participate in a wide range of stimulating discussions. Presentations will include keynote speakers, panels, plenary sessions, regular sessions, and student workshops. We welcome you to an inspiring, educational, practical, and enjoyable program.
Accepted abstracts will be peer reviewed by the international scientific committee and all reviewed and accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings.
Selected papers will be published in the special issue of the Journal of Façade Design and Engineering – JFDE, which will be synchronously published at the conference date.
Other than the Special Issue of JFDE, authors of some selected papers will be encouraged to expand their paper and submit it to Energy and Buildings Journal for publication consideration after the conference.
