The papers presented at CISBAT 2021 are now available online in the open access Journal of Physics: Conference Series Vol. 2042. This international conference -- organised by the EPFL Solar Energy and Building Physics Lab in hybrid mode -- took place from 8 to 10 September under the heading "Carbon Neutral Cities - Energy Efficiency & Renewables in the Digital Era".

Focused on energy efficiency and the use of renewables in the built environment, CISBAT 2021 offered a dynamic platform for scientific exchange in fields ranging from nanostructured materials for renewable energy applications to urban energy systems, with a particular focus on the use of AI in building science. As a new topic, circular economy rounded off the interdisciplinary program that makes the strength of CISBAT conferences.

CISBAT 2021 attracted participants from 28 countries and published 185 papers. Besides a strong international scientific committee, academic partners included the Swiss Chapter of the International Building Performance Simulation Organisation IBPSA, IEA Annex 79 on Occupant-Centric Building Design and Operation, MIT (Prof. L. Glicksmann) and Cambridge University (Prof. K. Steemers).
