Submissions Procedure


All the academics and practitioners of traditional building, architecture and urbanism that carry out their activity or are interested in the scope of the topics proposed for this conference may submit proposals to be presented at it.

All proposals will go through a selection process as detailed below and may be accepted for being presented at the conference and/or published in the new Journal of Traditional Building, Architecture and Urbanism.

These proposals may be both original unpublished research papers or presentations on other developed works. Each of these options will follow its own evaluation process according to a specific schedule.

All proposals must be submitted using the journal submission system.

Research papers

Abstracts submissions

before 9 August 2020

If the proposal is submitted in the form of an academic paper, the first step will be to send an abstract to be evaluated by the scientific committee.

These abstracts must meet the requirements established on the Journal of Traditional Building, Architecture and Urbanism website and must match the topics of the conference.

Once the abstract is received, the organizing team of the conference will first check that its content fulfills the objectives of the conference and / or the editorial policy of the journal, as well as whether the proposal complies with the general rules indicated in the specifications for the authors. In case the proposal is considered appropriate for the conference and / or the journal, the organizing team will anonymously send the abstract of the proposed article to two of the reviewers included in the scientific committee for its blind peer-review and evaluation.

Authors will be notified if their proposals have been accepted by August 17, 2020.

Full papers submissions

 before 14 September 2020

In the event that the proposed abstract has been accepted for its publication in the journal, then the full paper must be submitted. This will again follow a double blind peer review process. The editorial team of the journal will again assign two anonymous reviewers among the members of the scientific committee. Once this review has been accomplished, the editorial team will notify the result of the evaluation undertaken (acceptance, rejection, possible publication after minor changes or the need of a new review), as well as the remarks and comments that have been anonymously made by the reviewers.

Authors will be notified if their paper has been accepted by October 8, 2020.

If the proposed article has also been selected for its presentation as part of the contents of the conference, the instructions for recording it will be provided by that time.

Works and other submissions

Works Submissions

before 14 September 2020

All proposals of contents that are not research papers will be reviewed directly by the organizing team, which will determine their suitability for their inclusion in the conference and / or for their publication in the journal, and will send to their authors the modifications or revisions this team considers appropriate for them.


Presentations submissions

before 30 October 2020

Those contents selected to be presented at the conference, both research papers or other works, will then follow the same process for their dissemination through the conference website. The authors must at this point record an oral presentation on the accepted paper, lasting up to 15 minutes, following the specifications that will be provided when the date approaches. These presentations must be sent to the organizing team of the conference by October 9, 2020 to include them on the conference website prior to the start of the conference.

The authors whose proposals have been selected will also be part of the virtual panel discussions in which they will debate live on the different topics chosen. After each of them, the public will also be able to ask questions both the presentations uploaded on the conference website as well as on the issues raised in the very panel discussions.
