General Information

IAQ 2016 Conference builds upon the success of the previous IAQ Conference in 2013 in Vancouver. The IAQ 2016 Conference also marks ASHRAE’s 18th conference of its kind first held in 1986 in Atlanta and AIVC’s 37th annual Conference.

The conference will provide a unique opportunity for dialog among attendees to facilitate understanding of current indoor air quality policies, standards and best practices with themes such as regulatory vs. voluntary compliance for achieving IAQ, the role of IAQ in sustainable building programs and the relationship between IAQ and IEQ, etc.

The conference program will include internationally acclaimed keynote speakers, original peer reviewed papers, the latest in indoor environmental quality control, plus workshops and panel discussion.

This conference will guide the researchers, experts, policy makers, building owners and operators, engineers, designers, IAQ professionals, commissioning agents, architects and other interested participants about what works and what really doesn’t work when tackling major improvements in indoor air quality. Target facilities include residential and non-residential buildings.
