Special Symposium

The development of new materials and devices for green buildings provides one of the greatest opportunities for environmental change in our time. The energy consumption of houses and buildings accounts for 40% of all the energy used. Producing that energy generates about 36% of total carbon dioxide emissions. A range of new materials and solutions are being developed that promise significant improvements in the sustainability and efficiency of buildings.

Join industry leaders and innovators from government, industrial and academic laboratories to discuss new and what’s next, from building integrated photovoltaics and innovative lighting, to new roofing and window materials, superinsulating materials, novel coatings, and new sustainable construction materials.

Your submissions are invited on the following topics:

Topics & Application Areas

  • Advanced Materials for Green Building
