Call For Papers Open for SimBuild 2018
Deadline Oct. 23, 2017

ASHRAE

and IBPSA-USA

have announced a call for papers for the 2018 ASHRAE Building Performance
Analysis Conference and SimBuild
.
It will be the third, co-organized conference between the two organizations
and will take place at the Hilton Chicago, *September 26 ? 28, 2018*.

?Building performance modeling is transforming the industry to meet the net
zero and Architecture 2030 design goals, improving operational efficiency
and occupant comfort,? said Krishnan Gowri, conference chair. ?Recent
advancements in machine learning, data science and sensor technologies are
opening up new avenues to advance the analysis and modeling techniques to
meet the challenges faced by designers and modelers. This conference seeks
to connect the researchers and industry practitioners to facilitate the
adoption of these new techniques and workflows to make better decisions
through the application of simulation and modeling over the entire building
life cycle.?

Modelers, architects, software developers and researchers will address the
practices of building performance analysis, energy modeling and building
performance simulation using existing simulation tools, software
development and future simulation research and applications.
