Paper submission via EDAS

  • If you do not already have an EDAS account, please create one.
  • Log in and select BuildSys 2008 from the list of available conferences.
  • Register the abstract by providing the paper title and the abstract (up to 200 words) and all author details. Please ensure all names, addresses and email details are correctly entered.
  • To submit a full paper upload the paper through EDAS either at the moment of the registration or later through your EDAS BuildSys 2008 webpage.

Revising your paper

You can revise your submission at any time before the submission deadline.

To revise the submitted paper, login to EDAS, go to your BuildSys 2008 EDAS homepage and upload a new PDF version the same way you did already for the previous version.

NOTE: To revise your paper, please use the above procedure to upload the new revised version of your existing registered paper. Please do not register and submit the new version as if it were a separate new paper, since this will duplicate the paper registration records.
