Expert Peer Review Committee


The Council maintains a highly qualified scientific expert review panel from within its membership. This panel evaluated conference papers, CTBUH Journal papers, seed funding submissions, and other relevant research-oriented submissions on an as-needed basis. The composition of the panel represents the wide range of disciplines involved in the development, design, construction, and operation of tall buildings, and the Council’s expanding brief to take on all forms of urban sustainability. All abstract and paper submissions were rigorously reviewed by the International Expert Peer Review Committee.
