2018 Building Performance Analysis Conference and SimBuild, co-organized by ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA

Host:

IBPSA-USA / ASHRAE

Hilton Chicago, 720 S Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60605

September 26 - 28, 2018

The 2018 Building Performance Analysis Conference and SimBuild, co-organized by ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA, will be held September 26-28, 2018 at the Hilton Chicago, Chicago, IL. It is the third, co-organized conference between ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA.

The goal of this conference is to present the new techniques and workflows that will help researchers and practitioners make better decisions during the simulation and modeling process of an entire building life cycle.

“Building performance modeling is transforming the industry to meet the net zero and Architecture 2030 design goals, improving operational efficiency and occupant comfort,” said Krishnan Gowri, conference chair. “Recent advancements in machine learning, data science and sensor technologies are opening up new avenues to advance the analysis and modeling techniques to meet the challenges faced by designers and modelers.  This conference seeks to connect the researchers and industry practitioners to facilitate the adoption of these new techniques and workflows to make better decisions through the application of simulation and modeling over the entire building life cycle.”

Modelers, architects, software developers and researchers will address the practices of building performance analysis, energy modeling and building performance simulation using existing simulation tools, software development and future simulation research and applications.

The conference program will consist of Keynote Speakers, Invited Speakers, a Call for Papers, a Call for Presenters and the fourth ASHRAE LowDown Showdown. Special panels may be offered by industry leaders and organizations.
