SBE 16 Manila

We would like to invite you and your colleagues to participate in the Sustainable Built Environment 2016 Conference (SBE16 Manila) to be held on July 13-15, 2016 in Manila. SBE16 Manila is a regional conference of the International Initiatives on Sustainable Built Environment (iiSBE), jointly organized by the University of the Philippines Diliman College of Engineering, College of Architecture and School of Urban and Regional Planning (SURP) and sponsored by the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction, UN Environment Program, Sustainable Buildings and Climate Initiative, and International Federation of Consulting Engineers, with support from the Engineering Research and Development for Technology.

This 3-day conference aims to promote and facilitate the adoption of methods, policies and tools to accelerate movements towards global sustainable built environments.

This international conference is a great opportunity for international partners and Filipino researchers and students who have limited resources and access to attend such forum to present papers, posters, network and exposure to worldwide sustainability issues. We have invited presentations by exemplary educators and practitioners from around the world. A Master Class will also be available for additional training experiences. Topic for the Master Class is Wind Engineering. There will be an exhibit area that will display academic posters on one side and another area for companies displaying products of sustainable design and development. There will also be networking opportunities with educators, engineers, architects and planners who are in similar teaching and research areas.

The SBE16 Manila Conference will feature the following key topics:
