BAMB Final event “BUILDINGS AS MATERIAL BANKS – A  PATHWAY FOR A CIRCULAR FUTURE” (SBE19 Brussels – BAMB-CIRCPATH)”, 5-7 February 2019, Brussels, Belgium

The BAMB Consortium is pleased to invite you to submit an abstract and participate in BAMB’s final event “BUILDINGS AS MATERIAL BANKS – A  PATHWAY FOR A CIRCULAR FUTURE” (SBE19 Brussels – BAMB-CIRCPATH) that will be hold in Brussels on 05 to 07 of February 2019. The Consortium of the H2020 BAMB Project is proud to inform that the BAMB final event is part of the worldwide prestigious SBE19 Conference Series.

The first day of the SBE19 Brussels – BAMB-CIRCPATH event will be an industry day during which the Consortium will celebrate the results of the project through interactive sessions. This 1st day will be an opportunity for all stakeholders of the construction sector to learn more about what BAMB has achieved, provide feedback, exchange views on what is next and share the steps achieved on the pathway towards a circular future. The attendance at this part of the event will be free of charge, but subject to early registration for logistic purposes. Registration information will be provided on the BAMB website at a later date.

The 2nd and 3rd days of the event will be dedicated to a scientific conference on the pathways towards a circular economy in the building/construction sector. This international conference intends to bring together researchers and industry experts from the entire world to exchange their ideas and research and showcase advanced innovative technologies and methodologies for the built environment.

Due to numerous requests, the organizing committee is pleased to announce that the final deadline for abstract submission is now extended to the 09th of August 2018. Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit their abstracts of no more than 250 words in order to maximise the opportunity for both practitioners and academic researchers to share the latest developments in the field of the conference topics. All abstracts must be submitted in the Easychair through the following link:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bambcircpath2019

All accepted papers will be published in collaboration with IOP Publishers as open access papers in electronic proceedings within IOP Conference Series Earth and Environmental Science (EES, http://conferenceseries.iop.org) and submitted for indexing by ISI (Web of Science) and Scopus.

A book of abstracts will be made available to delegates in electronic form.

The participation in the scientific part of the event is subject to a registration fee.
