Welcome to Euro-ELECS 2015


Euro-ELECS 2015 is the first Latin-American and European Conference on Sustainable Buildings and Communities. It will be held in Guimarães, Portugal, from the 21st to the 23rd of July 2015.

This event is the evolution of the several previous ELECS (Encontro Latinoamericano sobre Edificações e Comunidades Sustentáveis) held on 1997, 2001, 2003, 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013.

Euro-ELECS 2015 is an innovative scientific event that aims to bridge the gap between the academic environment, society, theory and practice connecting European countries and the countries of Latin America.

For this reason, in addition to the scientific content organized by prominent world researchers, the programme will include activities like workshops, technical visits and the presentation of practical experiences, which will be conducted in association with industrial partners.

About 500 participants, exhibitors and visitors are expected from all over the world. The target groups are: Architects, Engineers, Researchers, Construction Industry Representatives and Policy Makers.

The organizers are pleased to invite you to this 3-day conference in Guimarães and to share with you the Portuguese culture, traditions and gastronomy during and after the conference.
