The official language of the Workshop is English and all papers must therefore be written and presented in English. The official languages of the practical design lab are English and Italian.
Papers should be prepared using the template provided and submitted using the online submission form. Contributions in the form of short papers (3-4 pages) will also be accepted.  Due to the nature of the topics discussed, authors are invited to include as many images, drawings and sketches as they wish.
Accepted papers will be included in the scientific programme of the workshop and presented in an oral session. Additionally, they will be published in the Sardinia 2019 Symposium Proceedings (ISBN-classified) in a specific section devoted to the thematic workshop.
A considerable number of leading papers selected by the Symposium Scientific Committee will be processed, eventually following revision and updating, for publication on a special thematic issue on Waste Architecture of Detritus journal.
In 2018 a special issue on Waste Architecture was published by Ri-Vista, an international indexed journal edited by Firenze University Press. The issue provides a selection of the most significant papers presented in the two appointments of Waste Architecture Platform during the Sardinia Symposium 2017 and 2015.
Authors presenting their work in an oral session will also be requested to prepare a PowerPoint presentation of their paper, to be submitted to the Organising Secretariat at papers@sardiniasymposium.it no later than 27th September 2019.
