Extension of submission deadline - SBE16 Sydney

The Organising Committee for the Sustainable Build Environment Conference 2016 (SBE2016) has announced an extension to the abstract submission deadline.

Due to overwhelming demand, and taking into account the holiday period, the committee has extended the submission deadline to Monday 29 February 2016.

The Sustainable Built Environment (SBE) Conference 2016 Series is a significant global event focused on innovation in design, planning and management of high-performance built environments, as well as promoting education and collaboration in the field. The delivery of high-performance built environments aims to improve the environmental impact and public health of urban and building scale initiatives to achieve more sustainable, liveable, equitable and resilient cities. The conference is a full-paper peer reviewed international conference. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings which will be published in Elsevier's Procedia Engineering Journal.
