In 2019 the conference proceedings will be published by MATEC Web of Conferences, which is an Open Access publication series published by EDP Sciences. The Conference proceedings will be indexed in the leading databases such as Conference Proceedings Citation Index (Web of Science), Scopus, Compendex (Engineering Village), DOAJ, EBSCO, Google Scholar, Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) and others.

CESBP Organizing committee set up an agreement with Energies as a publishing partner. The authors of accepted papers are invited to submit the extended version of their papers to the Special Issue "Recent Development in Building Physics". All papers will be peer reviewed and published in open access form. For more information please visit:


Call for papers

The Scientific Committee invites authors to submit full paper for presentation at the upcoming symposium
How to submit full paper: Once your abstract is accepted, login to your account at symposium webpage. Go to My submissions and click on Detail of your accepted abstract. When uploading the full paper, you are required to upload Copyright form and agree with Terms and Conditions as well.
Guidelines for authors: It is extremely important for all authors to follow these guidelines so that the publishing of the proceedings is not delayed by problematic papers.
Please, use the Word template and follow the instructions given there.

Length of the paper must be between 4 and 6 pages. Shorter papers will be excluded from the proceedings. Longer papers may be submitted only after the consent of the Proceeding Editor(s).
Copyright form: With each submission of a paper, the corresponding author must print, sign, scan, and submit the license agreement as a PDF file. The following is needed to fill in:
   - Full title of the paper
   - All names of the authors
   - Signature of the corresponding author and date

If you plan to use copyrighted material in your paper, you must obtain permission to use it from the owner of the copyright and/or authors. In this case, please contact the Proceedings Editor(s) as soon as possible to make necessary arrangements. Regretfully, papers submitted without appropriate copyright permissions may be excluded from the proceedings without any opportunity to resubmit. Seeking copyright permission at that late stage can cause significant delay in publication which would be unfair to other authors in the proceedings.
Full paper submission deadline: by February 15, 2019
Notification of full paper acceptance: by April 1, 2019
