Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In an era marked by pressing environmental concerns and an urgent need for sustainable development, the pursuit of carbon neutrality and sustainability in building construction and operation has become paramount. This Special Issue seeks to serve as a conduit for the dissemination of leading-edge research, methodologies, case studies, and technological breakthroughs that address the challenges and opportunities inherent in creating smarter, more sustainable buildings with a focus on achieving carbon neutrality.

This Special Issue on "Advanced Research on Smart Buildings and Sustainable Construction" aims to spotlight pioneering research and innovative methodologies in the realms of smart building technologies and sustainable construction practices, with a particular emphasis on achieving carbon neutrality and promoting sustainability. We cordially invite submissions of original research articles, review papers, case studies, and technical notes covering a broad spectrum of topics including, but not limited to:

  • AI-based smart building automation and control systems for carbon reduction;
  • Innovative strategies for energy-efficient building design and retrofitting;
  • Integration of renewable energy sources to achieve carbon neutrality in buildings;
  • Sustainable materials and construction techniques for reduced environmental impact;
  • Digital twin applications for sustainable construction practices;
  • Life cycle assessment and carbon footprint analysis in smart buildings;
  • Emerging technologies and solutions for smart and sustainable buildings;
  • Implementation of smart sensors and Internet of Things (IoT) applications for carbon reduction;
  • Examination of policies, regulations, and standards promoting smart building and sustainable construction.
