6/28/14 to 7/2/14
Seattle, WA
United States
The Conference addresses broad topics in the application of technology to practice, specific applications in ground source heat pumps, O&M and indoor environmental quality, as well as new reports on research taking place worldwide.
 
The second annual Research Summit seeks papers that report on HVAC&R research with particular emphasis on high performance building design and its role in a clean energy economy, and 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 complex relationship between indoor and outdoor environmental conditions, coupled with the impacts of climate change, requires buildings that are comfortable and healthy for the occupants yet also energy efficient. The Indoor Environment—Health, Comfort and Productivity Track seeks papers highlighting the state of knowledge of the balance of environmental health and energy efficiency in buildings and research directions.
 
The Ground Source Heat Pumps State of the Art: Design, Performance and Research Track requires papers addressing all aspects of design that lead to optimally performing systems in addition to avoiding common pitfalls that lead to poorly performing systems.
 
With low energy and zero energy buildings becoming more prevalent, there are many issues that arise with installation, startup, commissioning and operations and maintenance (O&M). The Installation, Commissioning, Operation, Maintenance of Existing Buildings Track seeks papers focusing on lessons learned, improvement of process and team communications and efforts to improve the installation, startup, O&M and commissioning of HVAC systems.
 
The Refrigeration Track has an emphasis on global perspectives on new refrigerants, variable refrigerant flow applications, magnetic bearing compressors and refrigerant management. Papers on non-comfort cooling applications in food preservation and medical cryogenics are sought, also.
 
ASHRAE is known for its standards – their development and their adoption worldwide. The Standards, Guidelines and Codes Track seeks papers highlighting the applications of ASHRAE’s standards to practice as well as European (CEN) and ISO standards that support building performance.
 
As with past ASHRAE conferences, the Seattle Conference also seeks papers addressing advances and practices across HVAC&R systems, equipment, fundamentals and applications.
 
In addition, the conference features a Professional Skills Track.
 
Conference paper abstracts are due Sept. 23, 2013. Upon acceptance, papers will be due Jan. 9, 2014. These papers undergo a single-blind review.
 
Full technical papers are due Sept. 23, 2013. 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.
