ASHRAE has announced a call for presentations for the 2019 ASHRAE Building Performance Analysis Conference to be held September 25-27 at The Curtis Hotel in Denver.

“Building performance modeling is an important, yet complex concept,” says Krishnan Gowri, conference chair. “The topics presented at this conference will prepare building professionals to make better decisions through the use of performance assessments and by the way that performance analysis impacts actual buildings.”

Building modeling professionals and practitioners are invited to submit presentation proposals between 20 to 30 minutes in length or 90-minute panel and seminar sessions. Proposals can cover a broad range of topics addressing the needs of the building performance modeling community. Creative and interactive presentation formats are strongly encouraged.

The 2019 Building Performance Analysis Conference requests the following submission types:

• Individual presentations on projects, research, or career/business development topics;

• Panel with three to four industry experts on a current topic of interest or team case study; and

• Seminar session with a chair and one to four speakers on one of the following topics: innovation and integration, modeling, dealing with data, and back to business.
