The volumes are listed on Web of Science, WoS: Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CTC-I), and are indexed on Scopus and EI Compendex.
The Journal of Building Physics has a tradition of being present at editions of the international building physics conferences and has a privileged relationship with the International Association of Building Physics. The conference organisers will hold a special issue with selected papers in the Journal of Building Physics and have entrusted Profs. Carsten Rode and Menghao Qin to be the Guest Editors of this special issue. A longer version of the selected papers and long abstracts will be reviewed for publication by the Journal.

About IBPC2021

IBPC2021 was the eighth in the sequence of International Building Physics Conferences. The conferences are the key international events where state of the art results in building physics research and practice is presented and discussed by leading researchers and professionals every three years. Previous conferences have been held in Eindhoven, the Netherlands (2000); Leuven, Belgium (2003); Montreal, Canada (2006); Istanbul, Turkey (2009); Kyoto, Japan (2012); Torino, Italy (2015); and Syracuse, NY, USA (2018).

To ensure the quality of the IBPC2021 conference, all submitted papers have been subjected to a peer review process whereby at least two impartial experts evaluate the papers for acceptance. IBPC2021 uses a single-blind procedure, whereby the identity of reviewers is not known to the authors.

Some statistics regarding paper acceptance: Out of 428 submitted abstracts, some 67% have resulted in final papers that have been accepted for presentation at the conference and inclusion in the proceedings.
