SASBE2012 - Smart and Sustainable Built Environments:
Emerging economies

SASBE2012 is the fourth in a global conferences series, being the previous editions organized in Australia (2003), China (2006) and The Netherlands (2009). At global level, organization is hosted by CIB (International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction) Work Commission 116, which shares the conference name. The Brazilian edition is a collaboration between UNICAMP, UFES and SindusCon-SP, chaired by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Vanessa Gomes (UNICAMP, CIB, iiSBE) and will be held between June 27th and 29th 2012, at the Brazilian British Centre (BBC), in São Paulo. A  technical tour is being planned for June 30th, according to availability and demand.

SASBE2012 takes on the batten from previous events and moves forward from sustainable development theories to professional practice with tangible outcomes, particularly in emerging economies contexts. In the past decade, strong efforts in developing countries have focused on leveling the playing field, on envisioning a more sustainable future, and on exploring management and innovation for sustainable building. SASBE2012 also takes in the challenge of helping to instrument such transition.

The official language for the conference is English. Simultaneous translation (English-Portuguese-English) will be provided for the plenary sessions only. A post-conference book will include invited contributions. The Smart and Sustainable Built Environment (SASBE) journal, to be published by Emerald Group Publishing Limited, will be launched during the conference. Revised versions of SASBE2012 best papers will be encouraged for publication in a special 2013 number of the SASBE Journal.
