What are IBPSA Awards?
The International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA) makes three awards for outstanding work in the building performance simulation field. These awards are made on a biennial basis at each Building Simulation Conference, providing there is a qualified candidate. In order to allow the awardees time to plan to attend, it is time to consider nominations for the up-coming conference in 2013.
The three categories awarded are:
IBPSA Award for Distinguished Service to Building Simulation
This award recognizes an individual who has a distinguished record of contributions to the field of building performance simulation, over a long period. The award consists of a certificate and $500 (US).
IBPSA Outstanding Young Contributor Award
This award recognizes an individual at the beginning of their career who has demonstrated potential for significant contributions to the field of building simulation. The award consists of a certificate and $500 (US).
IBPSA Outstanding Practice Award
This award recognizes and individual, group or firm, who has made significant contributions to the effective application and/or advancement of building simulation in practice. The award consists of a certificate and $US500.
Nominations for awards MUST be made by an independent third party.
Nominations for the Distinguished Service Award should include a brief CV which gives the history of involvement with building performance simulation, publications etc., and a summary of the nominee’s specific contribution to the field of building performance simulation – e.g. in the development/ contribution to development of building performance simulation tools or in furthering knowledge in the field of application of building performance simulation, etc.
Nominations for the IBPSA Outstanding Young Contributor Award should include a brief CV, which gives a summary of the individual’s contributions to the field of building performance simulation, their publications etc., and an assessment of the potential for future contributions arising from the individual.
