Thank you for the 428 abstracts we have received until the deadline 30 November 2020. 416 have been accepted to become either full or short papers. Deadline for submitting is 28 February 2021.

Two types of submission are eligible for IBPC 2021: Short papers (max. 3 pages) or full paper (max. 8 pages).

If your preliminary abstract is accepted, the scientific committee will invite you to produce and submit either a short paper (max. 3 pages) or a full paper (max. 8 pages) on the topic. Both short and full papers will be reviewed by two members of the scientific committee.

Submit paper 


Authors must prepare their papers using templates for the IOP Conference Series. Author guidelines and a template for conference proceedings can be found on the homepage of IOP Publishing. Use the template named 'JPCSA4Template.doc'. 

Presentation and publication of papers

Short papers will be presented briefly in one of the sessions during the conference and as posters in a poster session. Full papers may also be presented as posters with a brief oral introduction, but authors may express their wish to possibly give a full presentation of their full papers (subject to selection by the organising and scientific committees). 

All accepted short and full papers will be published in IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering (MSE). The proceedings are submitted to Web of Science upon publication. The volumes will be listed on Web of Science, WoS: Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CTC-I), and will be indexed on Scopus.

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.
