ASHRAE extends deadline for IAQ conference papers
A call for papers for the IAQ 2016 Conference, “Defining Indoor Air Quality: Policy, Standards and Best Practices,” has been extended until Nov. 30, 2015. The conference is co-organized by ASHRAE and AIVC, and will take place Sept. 12-14, 2016, in Alexandria, VA.
To submit an abstract or for more information, visit www.ashrae.org/IAQ2016.
The conference is the 18th in the ASHRAE IAQ series since its inception in 1986 and the 37th AIVC conference. The program will focus on current and emerging definitions of indoor air quality and how they are — or could be — implemented in government policies and in standards for the design and operation of buildings and other indoor environments used worldwide. IAQ 2016 will also highlight best practice solutions that go beyond existing minimum requirements.
Authors are invited to submit papers on the following topics and others appropriate to the conference theme.

• Perception vs. performance
• Monetization of IAQ
• DALY (disability adjusted life years) and related approaches
