I International Conference on Sustainable Construction and Demolition (SCD-2021)

The I International Congress on Sustainable Construction and Demolition (SCD 2021) will be held on 17 and 18 November 2021, in Valencia, Spain. This Conference will take place in a hybrid format, considering all prevention measures in accordance with the current health situation. All the lectures and presentations will be online on a digital presentation. The official languages of the Conference are English, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.


The SCD International Conference aims to disseminate knowledge at an international level for the management of sustainable construction and demolition industries. By way of this goal, it seeks to promote strategies and alternatives to accomplish efficient construction through the rational use of energy and the reduction and reuse of waste.


There are three main topics in the Conference related to sustainable construction and demolition:

1) Sustainability and construction: project, maintenance, and rehabilitation. 
2) Technology, energy, and environment: regulations, certification, and healthy buildings. 
3) Circular economy and life cycle assessment: analysis and planning, decommissioning, demolition, reuse, and recycling.


The Universitat Politècnica de València invites you to participate in the first edition of the Conference on Sustainable Construction and Demolition (SCD) and send your article if you are interested. The articles selected by the Scientific Committee will be proposed for publication in an extended version in the scientific journal Vitruvio International Journal of Architectural Technology and Sustainability (free of charge) and the journal 3C Tecnología (with editing cost) and Sustainability. The Conference Organising Committee is studying the publication of the papers in other international journals. 


Important dates: 
▪ Deadline for sending articles: 6-09-21 
▪ Acceptance notification of articles: 15-09-21 
▪ Communication of selected articles for video presentations: 22-09-21 


The SCD International Conference aims to bring together international institutions, researchers, professionals and students to exchange knowledge and experiences. They will be related to sustainability in the construction industry during all the life-cycle process:  from the design project to the demolition, reuse and recycling waste, in the global environment and circular economy context. In addition, the Nobel Prize winner Ed Rubin will participate and support us in this event.

The conference will offer the opportunity to strengthen relationships between experts, academics, and professionals in the sector. In this way, it is possible to create synergies and exchange ideas on the latest technologies in this field of application.
