Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Eight volumes hold roughly 1,000 papers (selected from 2,000 submissions) representing the August 2011 conference, which is identified by the acronym GBMCE. Held in Shangri-La, China, the conference attracted participation from 22 national and international organizations. Papers are organized under the very broad themes of building engineering, building materials, civil engineering, energy engineering and materials, environment engineering and materials, manufacturing and design, computer applications in building, and construction information. The papers are widely diverse. A keyword index provides some access to the contents, and an author list is provided for those seeking to find the contributions of particular individuals. A sampling of topics: the impact of infrastructure investment to coordinated urban and rural development in China, passive solar house design strategy in the north-east of China, renewal transformation of existing urban buildings, the use of industrial wastes in Ceramsite for construction, an analysis of earth folk houses along Shandong Canal, soil moisture conserving irrigation under straw mulching, and intelligent lighting system research and design.
