Three kinds of contributions are foreseen:

  • Research Papers,
  • Case Studies from successful projects, and
  • Panel Discussions on simulation key issues.

For Research Papers there are two possible forms of presentations:

  • full oral presentation, or
  • short oral presentation + poster.

Case Studies and Panel Discussions will not require the submission of a paper but only the submission of an extended abstract that will be directly reviewed by the Executive Scientific Committee.

All Research Papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed and published in the Conference Proceedings, regardless the form of presentation (full oral presentation or short oral presentation + poster)

IBPSA Conference Proceedings are indexed on Scopus.

Some papers will be selected for submitting an extended version on Special Issues in indexed journals.
