The 2014 conference will convene speaking and poster presentations, panel discussions, and a major exhibition focused on the overall conference theme: “Future Cities: Towards Sustainable Vertical Urbanism.” In addition, there will be a number of “City Rooms,” each highlighting best-practice urban and building case studies from specific cities internationally.

CTBUH members1 of all disciplines interested in presenting at the event are now encouraged to complete the one-page abstract template by the January 17, 2014 deadline, showing how their proposed presentation and technical paper will address the conference theme. The abstract should be submitted to the Conference International Scientific Committee using the standard template.

All abstracts/papers will be subject to rigorous peer review before acceptance into the conference program. Timing for submission of papers and production of the conference proceeding is extremely tight – please note the Key Dates for abstract and paper processing.

1: All presenters at the 2014 conference must be CTBUH members at either the organizational or individual level. To see if your company is already an organizational member of the CTBUH, see the full list here.

Published Proceedings & Translation | 出版会议论文集和翻译版本
As the recognized international authority on tall buildings, CTBUH conferences differ significantly from the many commercial conferences that are now being held around the world, in terms of both quality of knowledge-sharing and networking opportunities. Dissemination of best-practice information is of primary importance at every CTBUH conference. Thus, every presentation given at the Shanghai 2014 Conference will be substantiated by a paper, which will be rigorously peer-reviewed and published in the proceeding: a series of high-quality, hardback books around 1,000 pages in total length, which will be produced in two languages (English and Chinese). This proceeding, which delegates will receive in both hard-copy and digital format at the Conference itself, will form an important historical archive long after the event has ended.

Language & Translation

The official languages of the Conference will be both English and Chinese, with simultaneous translation of all presentations from English to Chinese and vice versa. The 2014 Shanghai Conference Proceeding publication will also be produced in both languages. Authors are encouraged to consider now how they can submit their final papers in both English and Chinese, perhaps drawing on translation expertise within your organization. The CTBUH has very limited resources for translation so your assistance in this manner would be greatly appreciated.
