The AEI Conference is teaming with the ASCE Journal of Architectural Engineering to provide opportunities for exceptional papers to be submitted for consideration to be published in the Journal. Because of this, conference papers will be limited to 6 pages to allow those interested and selected for the journal version of the paper to expand upon the writing with new knowledge. When submitting your abstract please indicate if you would be interested in advancing your paper for journal publication after the conference if it is deemed acceptable by the reviewers.
Panel Sessions: multi-disciplinary teams discuss, debate, or present knowledge in an engaging way with the audience. (90 minutes sessions)
Case Studies: presentations must include a multi-disciplinary project team. Teams will describe in detail an entire project including: project management, architecture and engineered design, challenges, failures, successes, outcome, and the owner perspective of the project. (1 to 2 case study per 90 minutes session)
Individual Technical Sessions: present a single subject that advances the AEI Builds. (3-4 presentations/papers per 90 minutes session)
Graduate Student Poster Session: presentation of technical work in a visual display for attendees to view and interact with. Master’s and Ph.D. students only. There will be an award for best poster.
The 2019 Steering and Local Committee is particularly interested in papers and presentations that include but are not limited to the following:
Authors are asked to provide a detailed description of what will be presented.

Questions that each section might answer is listed but do not explicitly need to be filled out.
Abstract/Session Impacts and Improve the Architecture Engineering Mission: Advancing Integrated Building Solutions (must provide max 50 words)
Abstract Evaluation for acceptance to the conference will be based on:
Authors will be required to identify the best fit AEI Build category when submitting abstracts.
The AEI Build Initiative provides a framework for the technical program. AEI Build draws on the best ideas in design, construction, and maintenance of buildings in eight practice-focused areas of the architectural engineering profession: Deliver, Enclose, Learn, Modular, Perform, Resilient, Secure, and Sustain.
