The RILEM International Conference on Sustainable Materials, Systems and Structures (SMSS 2019) was organised by the Faculty of Civil Engineering University of Zagreb as a supporting event of the RILEM Spring Convention in Rovinj, Croatia. These events are held in the year the Faculty of Civil Engineering in Zagreb celebrated its 100-year anniversary of its founding, making 2019 the ideal year to host such an important international event. The purpose of the conference was to bring together scientists, practitioners, members of technical committees and users of technical recommendations, to jointly discuss and envision the future of sustainable development of materials, systems and structures in a holistic, global way.
The SMSS 2019 conference had participants from 50 countries, from Argentina to United States of America, who presented a total of 290 papers. The conference was sponsored by 10 international industrial partners, supported by 6 international organisations of scientists and practitioners and organised under the patronage of 4 governmental bodies. A total of 450 contributions were reviewed by more than 150 prominent reviewers from different fields. The events Organizing Committee consisted of 16 local members and 6 invited international members.
As part of the RILEM SMSS 2019 conference, the Energy Efficient Building Design and
Legislation segment was organized as a separate international segment with the aim to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers, research scholars and industry professionals involved in building physics and sustainable construction, giving them the opportunity to exchange and discuss current ideas and knowledge in both the background science and practical applications of advanced materials, systems and methods for design of energy-high performing, healthy and sustainable buildings; as well as current legal framework and policy instruments. All papers submitted for this segment were subjected to a full review process, and the Proceedings contain only those papers that were accepted following this process. The review of manuscripts was undertaken by members of International Scientific Committee. This invaluable assistance, which has greatly enhanced the quality of the Proceedings, is gratefully acknowledged. The spectrum of relevant research topics covered encompasses enhancement of energy performance and indoor comfort in buildings; heat transfer problems; legislation framework and policies for energy efficiency in buildings; Building Information Modelling (BIM) for energy modelling applications; hygrothermal performance of building materials and elements; innovative building envelope systems; materials and systems for energy retrofitting; and sustainability through recycling.
Outstanding papers were nominated by Reviewers for post-conference publication in Special Issue of international Journal of Advances in Building Energy Research. Journal is focused on most important developments across the rapidly expanding fields of energy efficiency and environmental performance of buildings
Finally, the Editors wish to thank the authors for their efforts to produce and deliver papers of high standard. We are certain that these Proceedings will be a valued reference of research topics in this important field and that it will, together with the other volumes from SMSS conference, form a suitable base for discussion and suggestions for future development and research.
