2. PUBLISHING PARTNERSHIP WITH RI-VISTA JOURNAL!
We are pleased to announce that Ri-Vista, an international indexed journal edited by Firenze University Press, will publish a special issue based on a selected number of top research papers from the Waste Architecture Sessions / Sardinia 2017. Furthermore, a selection of papers from the International Workshop on Waste Architecture / Sardinia 2015 will be peer-reviewed for potential inclusion in the issue.
Founded in 2003, in 2014 Ri-Vista was included as one of the scientific journals of the Department of Architecture of the University of Florence, and in 2015 a second series was launched. The journal focuses on Landscape Architecture in a traditional discipline open to contributions from other related scientific fields; it has been consolidated over the years to expand on the main topic to which the journal is devoted.
For more details please visit http://www.fupress.net/index.php/ri-vista/index.
The paper selection process for potential publication on Ri-Vista will be carried out in September 2017. Following notification, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit their contribution to papers@sardiniasymposium.it no later than 15th October. The paper should be prepared in line with the editorial requirements of the journal.

3. LATE ABSTRACTS

The deadline for abstract submission officially expired on April 15th, 2017.  
Should you wish to submit a late proposal, please click here. All efforts will be made to evaluate your abstract for potential inclusion in the conference programme.
The purpose of the oral sessions dedicated to Waste Architecture is to stimulate a debate on architecture for the environment and, more specifically, the architecture of major works related to Waste Management.
In this prestigious context, the thematic sessions will provide the setting for in-depth discussion on this specific topic, aimed not only at environmental professionals, but also experts in architecture, and landscape design, and will represent an opportunity to come into contact with the world-leading experts in the field.
Researchers and professionals in the field are invited to contribute to the conference by submitting an abstract focussing on one or more of the following topics: Functional requalification of old and new landfill sites / Landfill mining for land reuse and remediation of degraded land / Integration of pneumatic waste collection system in the urban space / Design of facilities for separate collection systems / Locations for waste disposal and relationships with the city / Transfer stations / Waste Architecture and circular economy (Reuse Centres, ...) / Architecture of buildings for waste treatment / Other
