Built around the theme “Building South Africa together” the 2016 MBSA Congress is intended to be inclusive and cover a wide spectrum of building industry matters. It is also intended to provide a platform for business, government and other stakeholders to discuss and focus on areas that are critical and necessary for building South Africa.
Contributors should appreciate the fact that it is not possible to cover all presentations within the allocated time of two days. Therefore, should your proposed topic not be included in the programme, that should not be seen to signify anything about your topic, your institution and the value of your presentation.
If you are interested in presenting a paper, or suggesting a particular topic for presentation by any expert on the subject matter, please send us a note indicating:
a) Proposed topic (even if not willing to present personally)
b) The subject of the paper or presentation.
c) The work (e.g. practical experience, research) on which it will be based (Only if willing to present a paper).
d) An outline (preferably not more than 200 words), detailing the focus of the presentation (Only if willing to present a paper).
e) Contact details (even if not willing to present a paper).
The length of the presentations will vary from 30 to 45 minutes, depending on where it is included in the programme. You may submit proposals for papers on more than one topic. You may also propose not more than two topics that you think the Congress should cover even if you are not going to be presenting papers yourself.
We thank you for your interest, and look forward to your participation in the Master Builders Congress 2016.
