All submitted abstracts and papers will be peer reviewed by the scientific committee. The accepted papers must be presented at the conference and will be published in the ICAAR2021 proceedings. Authors will retain the copyright of their papers. Therefore, after the conference, authors, who wish to do so, may submit manuscripts derived from the work published in ICAAR2021 proceedings for publication elsewhere, as long as the chosen publisher consents dual publication.
The Book of Abstracts of ICAAR 2021 will be issued by LNEC and published on-line, at the conference website (http://icaar2021.lnec.pt/), in October 2020.
The Proceedings of ICAAR 2021 will be published by LNEC and distributed in digital format to all registered participants during the Conference, in June 2021.
Note that selected papers will be invited for journal publication in special issues devoted to the 16th ICAAR 2021. There will be three special issues from three different journals:
- ICE - Construction Materials (https://www.icevirtuallibrary.com/)
- Materiales de Construcción (http://materconstrucc.revistas.csic.es/index.php/materconstrucc)
- Portuguese Journal of Structural Engineering (http://rpee.lnec.pt/)
Also note that one registration fee is valid for up to 2 papers. If you have 3 accepted papers than make sure that at least one of your co-authors will register to the conference to present the third paper.
To submit the Abstract and Paper, authors must create and access their personal area, using the EasyChair platform and then access the ICAAR2021 EasyChair site and "enter as an author".
