Researchers, practitioners, and professionals are invited to submit abstracts and papers related to the conference theme and tracks. The selected papers will be presented during the conference and published in the conference proceedings.
An international conference on low carbon design with bamboo would likely focus on exploring sustainable and eco-friendly architectural and design solutions that utilize bamboo as a primary material. Bamboo is a renewable and fast-growing resource that can be used in various construction applications, and it has the potential to contribute significantly to reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainable practices in the built environment.
- Bamboo as a sustainable building material: Presentations and discussions on the properties of bamboo that make it suitable for construction, including its strength, durability, and eco-friendliness.
- Low carbon design principles: Exploring design strategies that minimize carbon emissions throughout the entire lifecycle of a building, from material selection to construction and operation.
- Case studies and projects: Showcasing real-life examples of buildings and structures designed with bamboo to demonstrate its potential in low carbon design.
- Innovative bamboo technologies: Introducing cutting-edge technologies and techniques for bamboo processing, treatment, and integration into contemporary architectural practices.
- Environmental and social impacts: Discussions on the environmental benefits of using bamboo, such as its role in carbon sequestration, and its potential to create sustainable livelihoods for local communities.
- Regulations and standards: Addressing the existing building codes, regulations, and certification systems related to bamboo-based construction and advocating for supportive policies.
- Challenges and future prospects: Identifying obstacles and limitations in adopting bamboo as a mainstream building material and proposing future research and development areas.
