The first-ever Building Automation & Sustainability Conference, which will be held on conjunction with the BACnet International conference, will be sponsored by LonMark International, and Engineered Systems, among other companies and organizations. The unprecedented building automation event takes place in Phoenix September 25-27, 2007. LonMark, which has over 600 member companies around the world and over 100 million installed LON-based products, recently endorsed this three-day event.  The September 25th agenda will focus on BACnet issues present and future, from wireless BACnet on Zigbee, municipal facilities case studies, specifying BACnet effectively, and mining BACnet data for greater efficiency.

  The sessions on the 26th and 27th will address issues across the entire controls and intelligent buildings spectrum. Panels will look at controls in sustainable design, zero-energy buildings, new technologies, open systems, energy response, lighting controls, system integration, and more. Followup Q&A with attendees is a key part of the experience as well.
