The Architectural Engineering Institute (AEI), in partnership with the Department of Architectural Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University, is pleased to announce the 2013 AEI Conference. The conference will include workshops, technical paper sessions, invited and keynote presentations, panel discussions, and local tours of technical interest. The conference is geared towards a balance between academics and practitioners. It will benefit professionals because, in addition to learning about the latest technical developments in architectural engineering research, they will also be able to participate in meetings of the AEI's technical committees, an industry exhibition, and to interact with architectural engineering students from around the world. Students will benefit from attending the conference as it will include opportunities to interact with leaders of the architectural engineering industry, partake in student meetings and elections, and participate in the finals of the 2011-2012 ASCE Charles Pankow Annual Architectural Engineering Student Competition. Many AEI partner organizations, educational institutions, and sponsoring firms are expected to participate in the conference. Attendees will have a unique opportunity to learn about these organizations, while learning new and relevant architectural engineering topics that will help them advance their careers, their respective organizations and the overall architectural engineering profession.
The conference covers all aspects of Architectural Engineering. Papers are invited from both practitioners and researchers on the following and related topics:
- Educational Issues in Architectural Engineering
- Case Studies in AEC
- Building Illumination Systems
- International Trends in Buildings
- Building Envelope Systems
- Innovative Building Materials
- Structural Systems
- Building Security
- Innovations in Building Design
- Building Construction Engineering and Management
- Building Failures/Forensics
- Building Acoustics
- Building Information Modeling (BIM)
- Energy Efficiency in Buildings
- Sustainable Buildings
- Architectural Systems
- Building Mechanical Systems
- Building Electrical and Lighting Systems
- Multi-Hazard Building Engineering
- Healthcare Facility Design and Construction
- Innovative and Specialty Buildings
- Tall Buildings
- Facilities Management
- IT Systems for Building Design and Construction
- Integrated Systems
- Building Control Systems
- High Performance Building Systems
- Building Simulation
- Building Retrofits
- Seismic Performance of Buildings
- Historic Preservation of Buildings
Abstracts should be 200-300 words long and indicate which conference topic it is most closely related to.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Buildings is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
