We are pleased to invite you to the International Conference for Sustainable Design of the Built Environment (SDBE) held in London, UK on 20 and 21 December 2017. The SDBE conference is a unique opportunity for academics, researchers, architects, urban designers, engineers, building consultants and professionals to meet and share the latest knowledge, research and innovations on low carbon building design, building performance, simulation tools and energy efficient building-related technologies.

The conference focuses on sustainable design, building energy performance, sustainable planning of neighbourhoods and cities, emphasising a balanced approach to environmental, socio-economic and technical aspects of sustainability. The topics extend to include innovative approaches for education and training on sustainability of the built environment. The conference will raise awareness concerning state-of-the-art strategies and best practice across the world of integrating sustainable development approaches in the built environment.

The conference will include keynote speakers and technical workshops to promote the knowledge exchange on the conference themes. The conference themes include a range of forums covering sustainable design and operation within the built environment which aim to ultimately improve the quality of life, health and well-being whilst mitigating the impact of the built environment on carbon emissions.

Please note: Papers submitted and presented at SDBE will be published in the conference proceedings (with a unique ISBN).
