We invite researchers from Industry and Academia in Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Facilities Management (AECFM) and related fields to submit papers on Lean Construction research and applications for presentation at the IGLC28. 

The conference will be organized according to the following themes, but these are not intended to be exclusive.

Authors are asked to submit full papers (there is no separate submission of abstracts), prepared according to the attached paper specifications and keyword list, and conforming to the attached copyright agreement that can be downloaded on the following links:

Papers will be reviewed using a double-blind peer review process. Submissions will be handled according to the following timeline:

1. Submission of original research- or application papers – DUE Sunday January 26, 2020. To submit, all (co)authors must register and then upload their paper on the CMT website https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/IGLC2020

Note that an author’s paper will not be published unless the author or a co-author has reviewed at least one paper submitted by others. We count on your participation in the peer review process! Also, at least one author of every paper must register at full cost to present their work and participate in the conference. One author can at most present two papers.

The IGLC’s body of knowledge on Lean Design and Construction is captured in the online repository of its annual conference proceedings. This repository is free to access at http://iglc.net/papers and comprises over 1,500 conference papers searchable by keyword and author. Many lean principles, methods, and practices used in the AECFM industry today stem from original IGLC research. It is of utmost importance that authors review this body of knowledge and relate the work they present to it.
