Papers Sought for ASHRAE CIBSE Technical Symposium

DUBLIN—Papers are being sought for an ASHRAE CIBSE Technical Symposium, scheduled for April 3-4, 2014, in Dublin. The deadline for abstracts is Sept. 15, 2013.

            The theme of the symposium is “Moving to a New World of Building Systems Performance.” Recognizing that system and plant performance is a global issue, this joint CIBSE and ASHRAE symposium gives a platform to the latest practice and research from around the world in active and passive building systems that will shape an effective future for the built  environment with minimum resource impact.

For complete information, visit www.cibse.org/symposium2014

The fourth annual Technical Symposium aims to encourage the participation of young and experienced researchers and industry practitioners to share experiences and develop networks.

This invitation is for papers concerning research and development that may address:

  • Enhanced building engineering solutions through modeling and prediction

  • Innovation in passive and active building systems

  • Design and operation of future cities

  • Improving the operation of the built environment

  • Maintaining and improving legacy building systems

  • Development and impact of benchmarks, standards and regulatory measures

  • Communication, skills and workforce development

This list is not exhaustive but provides the intended context of the Technical Symposium that will focus on aspects that are of interest to CIBSE and ASHRAE members. Material is welcomed based on recent or current research and application as well as the actual or potential impact of that research on the built environment.

There also are additional opportunities for the presentation of relevant case studies supported by keynotes (as opposed to a formally reviewed paper).

All papers will be peer reviewed and published electronically through CIBSE. Selected papers may be developed for publication in CIBSE’s Building Services Engineering Research & Technology (BSERT) journal.

Abstracts should be sent by email to groups@cibse.org no later than Sept. 15, 2013, and should include:

  • the intended title of the submission

  • authors'/author's names/name and affiliation

  • specific email address of principal author

  • abstract of maximum 250 words in English, the official symposium language

  • note whether it is a proposed paper (to be orally or poster presented) OR a case study
