ASHRAE, IBPSA-USA to merge conferences

ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA have announced a joint conference that merges the IBPSA-USA SimBuild and ASHRAE’s Energy Modeling Conferences. 

The joint conference, titled “2014 ASHRAE/IBPSA-USA Building Simulation Conference,” will come to Atlanta, Sept. 10-12. Currently, the organizations are looking for conference papers. 

“This conference is a first for the industry, and we’re excited about the benefits it can bring to the building energy analysis and performance simulation community,” said Dennis Knight, conference chair.

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

The conference is focusing on addressing building information modeling, building energy modeling, and building simulation. 

“The most pressing need facing modelers is transferring data between tools, and this conference seeks to provide answers through the conference content and by bringing together practitioners, software developers, and the research community,” Knight said.

Organizers are seeking papers on topics addressing the integration and interoperability of analytic modeling tools with physical modeling tools. In addition, papers are sought describing workarounds, case studies, challenges, barriers, and cloud based solutions. Some of the topics include energy efficiency, HVAC component modeling, HVAC load analysis, and energy auditing.

Abstracts of 400 words or less are due Nov.  4, 2013. If accepted, papers are due March 3, 2014. The conference papers will be a maximum of 8 pages in length. To submit an abstract or for more information, visit www.ashrae.org/simulation2014.
