ASHRAE Issues Call for Papers for Building Performance Analysis Conference and SimBuild

ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA have announced a call for papers for the 2018 ASHRAE Building Performance Analysis Conference and SimBuild, which will be held Sept. 26-28, 2018, at the Hilton Chicago.

This conference will expand on the core subject of energy modeling to include non-energy building performance analysis and simulation for professionals responsible for such work. The conference’s goal is to provide resources, work flows and processes required to support improved planning, design, construction and operation of high performing buildings, that are low energy consuming, environmentally responsive and responsible, safe, secure and healthy for human occupancy.

“Building performance modeling is transforming the industry to meet the net zero and Architecture 2030 design goals, improving operational efficiency and occupant comfort,” says Krishnan Gowri, conference chair. “Incorporating an integrated approach is a method that can deliver gains in terms of designing and assessing the environmental cost of buildings. This conference offers tools and best practices, reducing energy use, maximizing performance, improving aspects of the design and creating a higher performing building.”

The conference seeks papers addressing the following topics:

  • Buildings and Information Technology Nexus
  • Modeling Advances
  • Early Design
  • Multiple Systems Modeling
  • Big Data
  • Health, Wellness and Comfort
  • Energy Performance and System Simulation
  • Codes, Standards and Compliance

Abstracts are due Oct. 23, 2017. Upon acceptance, papers are due Feb. 2, 2018.

The conference program will include keynote speakers, invited speaker sessions, panels, presentations and the fourth ASHRAE LowDown Showdown modeling competition.
