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 firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Sept. 15, 2013, and should include:
Early October 2013 – Authors selected to proceed will be advised and specifically invited to prepare draft material suitable for oral or for poster delivery.
November 2013 – Selected authors submit draft manuscripts of full paper (between 3000 and 5000 words), or the draft poster, or case study keynotes for peer review
Mid December 2013 – Authors receive reviewers’ comments and develop final submission following review, and subject to acceptance by the reviewers/technical committee.
January 19, 2014 – Deadline for submission of the final paper/poster, or case study keynotes
