Call for Papers

Electronic paper submission requires a full paper (upto 8 columns) including figures and references. The program committee will evaluate papers based on scientific merit, innovation, relevance, and presentation. Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished results are invited in all areas of conference tracks of the conference.

The conference stands for the theme: Transforming our Built Environment through Innovation and Integration towards a Smart and Sustainable Future. The conference will bring together green building advocates, industry, policy-makers, architects and academicians from different parts of the world. Engineers need to understand and evolve a sustainable solution to the future challenge, to do more in a smart way requiring fewer resources, less energy and generating minimal waste. Green and smart buildings will reduce pollution and degradation of environment through efficient usage of energy, water and other resources supporting healthy living and improving productivity.

Authors are invited to submit papers through Easychair Conference Management System (Click here - Papers can be accepted for Oral & Poster presentation. Before paper submission, authors are strongly advised to carefully read the instructions.

Preparation Instructions to Authors

This conference uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process to make it fairer. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity. To assist with this, the key items that need to be observed are as follows:

  • Remove names and affiliations under the title within the manuscript. May be added during the submission of camera ready paper.
  • Remove references to funding sources 
  • Do not include acknowledgments 
  • Name your files with care and ensure document properties are also anonymised.
  • Use the third person to refer to work that authors have previously undertaken, e.g. replace any phrases like "as we have shown before" with " has been shown before [ref]”
Paper Formatting
Format: MS Word and Latex package
Figures and Tables
Ensure that the figures and tables are legible. Please also ensure that you refer to your figures in the main text. The proceedings will be printed in gray-scale, and many reviewers print the papers in gray-scale. Therefore, if you must use colors for your figures, ensure that the different colors are highly distinguishable in gray-scale. If a figure is not easily understandable in gray-scale, then assume it will not be understood by the reviewers. It is better to just prepare your documents without color.

Please list all the cited work in the references section. Declare all the authors of the paper at time of submission. Addition/removal of authors once the paper is accepted will have to be approved by the program chair. The paper selection process is carefully run in a way that maximizes fairness by seeking to eliminate all conflicts of interest. Late changes to author lists can invalidate that process. By submitting a manuscript to GBSE 2018, the authors guarantee that the manuscript has not been previously published or accepted for publication in a substantially similar form in any conference or journal. The authors also guarantee that no paper that contains significant overlap with the contributions of the submitted paper is under review at another conference or journal, or a workshop with an archived proceeding, or will be submitted to one of them before the GBSE 2018 author notification deadline. Violation of any of these conditions will lead to rejection and forwarding the details of the author(s) to appropriate body  For queries regarding paper submission contact:
