Did you submit an abstract but it was not accepted by the Scientific Committee of Plea2015? Join us at Plea2015 conference for networking. We welcome you then in Bologna, 9-11 September 2015! You still have the opportunity to send your abstract next year for Plea2016 California.

 

Is the paper again subjected to the process of selection or rejection? 

Yes. It will undergo once again a double blind peer review process. Paper Acceptance notification and comments for the final submission will be sent by Plea2015 Organizing Team according to the deadlines published in the key dates section.

 

How my paper will be evaluated?

The technical committee is made by Academicians, Researchers and Practitioners. As we did during the review of abstracts, they will choose their preferred type of submission (Any - Only scientific/research work - Only applied research/practice work) and their preferred “solutions”. This will ensure that the reviewers have interest and experience on the topics of your paper.

The review process will be done on line. The reviewers are required to answer to the following questions:

NEW Evaluation Criteria

• Generic research, buildings and products in themselves are not sufficient. In order to be accepted, you are required to clearly state which is your contribute to the improvement of knowledge and to the main goal of Plea2015.

 

If my paper will be selected, which are the next steps? 

Once you receive the acceptance notification you will need to send us the paper print ready submission file for publication (in this case names of authors are required) according to the deadlines published in the key dates section.

 

If my paper will be selected, how will I present the content of my research ?

During the PLEA2015 conference all accepted papers will then be presented orally through powerpoint or poster. The format that best suits your research will be chosen during the next steps. For Plea2015 both formats are equally important.

 

Which form of publication did you choose?

During the event at the registration desk you will receive the book of abstracts that will collect the hard copy of the final abstracts of all accepted papers. The full content of papers will be available through the QR code provided in the book of abstracts; all approved final full papers will also be published as softcopies on a USB-memory stick.
The first page of the paper template will be published in the book of abstracts. It will collect your research summary where you need to clearly state which is your answer to the main question: which are your architectural (r)solutions to the social, environmental and economic challenges of today?
