12th International (Virtual) Conference on Sustainability in Energy and Buildings - SEB-20

Share this Post:

Following the success of earlier events in the series, SEB-20, the Twelfth International Conference on Sustainability in Energy and Buildings is organised by the KES International and will be held in the format of a virtual conference this year.

 

SEB-20 invites participation and paper submissions across a broad range of sustainability and energy-related topics relevant to the main theme of Sustainability in Energy and Buildings.

 

Applicable areas include sustainable design and of buildings, neighbourhoods and cities (built and natural environment); optimisation and modelling techniques; smart energy systems for smart cities; green information communications technology; as well as a broad range of solar, wind, wave and other renewable energy topics.

 

The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers and government and industry professionals to discuss the future of energy in buildings, neighbourhoods and cities from a theoretical, practical, implementation and simulation perspective. The conference will be an exciting chance to present, interact, and learn about the latest research in Sustainability in Energy and Buildings.

 

More details can be found on the General Tracks and Invited Sessions pages of the website.
