Built Environment & Natural Environment Conference

BEAN Conference

Built Environment & Natural Environment Conference

This is the research site for the BEST Research Institute's internal, refereed BEAN conference.

The aim of the BEAN conference is to provide an internal mechanism to explore new research directions. The conference provides a sound platform for PhD students to present their annual progress and receive valuable feedback. The conference also provides a platform for staff to publish early research results and explore new research ideas with colleagues.

Papers reporting research proposals and work in progress are especially welcome.
