EXTENDED DEADLINE: Call for Abstracts has been extended to Monday 27 February
AIRAH and the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA) are proudly hosting a joint Building Simulation Conference in Melbourne, running from November 15–16, 2017.
AIRAH CEO Tony Gleeson, M.AIRAH, says the conference is a worthy addition to the Institute’s suite of events.
“Building Simulation 2017 will provide a unique forum for the exchange of ideas and information between simulation researchers, simulation developers, building designers, and government legislators,” Gleeson says. “It will explore how simulation is helping to improve building performance, and will be an excellent opportunity to keep up to date with the latest innovations in the field of simulation and the energy performance of buildings.”
Call for abstracts
The conference will be a blend of academic and industry technical papers and posters on the latest in building simulation. The conference committee is now calling for abstracts on an array of subjects, including but not limited to:
- Building energy simulation: teaching, practice, research, insights
- Lighting and daylighting simulation: teaching, practice, research, insights
- Application of computational fluid dynamics in buildings
- Uncertainty, validation and risk management
- Calibration of models for deep retrofits
- Model-based control and controls design tools
- Building information modelling and import from CAD
- Thermal comfort modelling
- Building regulation and policy
- Occupant behaviours
- Urban scale modelling.
Abstract submission process
Abstracts are sought for peer-reviewed papers to be presented at the conference. The conference committee encourages the submission of abstracts of papers on any aspect of building-related performance modelling and associated software techniques.
Abstract submissions must not exceed 300 words and should also include a separate 100-word author biography and high-resolution author photo. Abstracts should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, February 17, 2017.
Abstracts will be judged primarily on scientific soundness of the applied methods and the degree to which the contribution advances the state of the art.
Authors of accepted abstracts must submit a technical paper that will be double-blind reviewed in separate academic and industry streams.
