Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture of Kaunas University of Technology would like to invite you to participate in the first international conference Advanced Construction and Architecture 2020 (ACA 2020) (https://aca2020.ktu.edu/), co-organized with Riga Technical University and Tallinn University of Technology.

ACA 2020 is the successor of Advanced Construction (6 conferences) and Ecological Architecture (4 conferences) conferences. ACA will focus on smart, green, and efficient ideas contributing towards meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The Conference will cover a wide range of topics including:

  • Innovative building materials and composites;
  • Smart architecture;
  • Building and city information modeling;
  • Affordable and clean energy for the built environment;
  • Indoor air quality, health, and wellbeing;
  • Alternative raw materials, low-carbon binders, and concretes;
  • Advanced structures and technologies.

Ten selected studies submitted to ACA 2020 will be invited to publish a full paper in a Special Issue of Sustainability. Kaunas looks forward to hosting you in September 2020.
