Please note the abstract submission deadline was 31 January. Members submitting late will be considered in a second-tier category. Each year we are significantly over-subscribed with high-quality abstracts from CTBUH members around the world, and unfortunately, we must disappoint many hundreds of colleagues who want to present at the event. We thus have to take into consideration the timing of submitted abstracts, so submitting late automatically puts you into a second-tier status. You can see this and other reasons abstracts are included/rejected here.

Submission Deadline: 31 January 2018

Abstracts are sought for presentations that fit within the overall Conference theme Polycentric Cities: The Future of Vertical Urbanism (see full Conference synopsis).

CTBUH members1 of all disciplines interested in presenting at the event are now encouraged to complete the online abstract form by the 31 January 2018 deadline, showing how their proposed presentation will address the Conference theme and synopsis. Please note that competition for oral presentations at the Conference will be extremely high. All abstracts will be subject to rigorous review before acceptance into the conference program. NOTE: No paper substantiations will be required for the 2018 conference – only abstract submissions.

NOTE: Abstract submissions must be completed in English only.
