ASHRAE seeks papers for 2015 Annual Conference

ASHRAE is seeking papers for its 2015 Annual Conference, June 27-July 1, in Atlanta.

“The 2015 Annual Conference in Atlanta will have a strong focus on the design, construction, and operation of high performance buildings as four of the nine tracks in the conference focus on advanced design guidance, modeling, operation and optimization, and indoor air quality, which are key aspects of high performance buildings along with one track that explicitly considers measured results and other aspects of high performance buildings,” said David Claridge, conference chair.

The third annual Research Summit brings together researchers to present and discuss the latest research. Papers describing ASHRAE-related research are encouraged as well as papers from societies and associations worldwide.

The Moving Advanced Energy Design Guidance to the Mainstream Track focuses on the Advanced Energy Design Guides and seeks papers on methods for using the guides, including actual building case studies and other documented uses to move the market towards energy efficiency.

The High Performance Buildings Track extends ASHRAE’s activities in the design and measured performance of these buildings by seeking papers on these successes as well as identifying shortfalls where high performance has fallen considerably short of the design.

Real engineering as applied to operation, maintenance, and operational optimization or commissioning can bring increased comfort and offers huge financial returns, according to ASHRAE officials. The Building Operation, Maintenance, and Optimization/Commissioning Track seeks papers related to all aspects of this topic.

Computational capacity and data collection capability has expanded the scope, complexity, and practical applications of modeling. The Modeling throughout the Building Life Cycle Track seeks papers related to all aspects of building modeling and, in particular, successful applications that have extended modeling into operational phases of the building life cycle.

Indoor air quality is closely linked to comfort and to occupant satisfaction, productivity, and health. The Indoor Air Quality Track seeks papers that explore these links, particularly in ways that make the case for high levels of IAQ compelling to building owners.

The Refrigeration Track has an emphasis on related refrigeration technologies that will reduce the use of traditional refrigerants including evaporative cooling and desiccants.

As with past ASHRAE conferences, the Atlanta Conference also seeks papers addressing advances and practices across HVACR systems, equipment, fundamentals, and applications.

Conference paper abstracts are due Sept. 22, 2014. Upon acceptance, papers will be due Jan. 5, 2015. These papers undergo a single-blind review.

Full technical papers are due Sept. 22, 2014. Papers submitted for review must be both technically accurate and clearly written. These papers undergo a rigorous double-blind review and will be published in ASHRAE Transactions.
