Conference announcement: Data for Low Energy Buildings (DATALEB'18)

1 post / 0 new

Dear Bldg-Sim community:

The following conference in Spain may be of interest to some of you with a wider interest in low-energy buildings. The scope is wider than simulation only, but building simulation will be a key aspect of the event.

Best regards,
Pieter de Wilde

1st International Conference on Data For Low Energy Buildings


University of Murcia
Murcia (Spain) | 28th - 29th June, 2018



The conference Data for Low-Energy Buildings 2018 aims to facilitate the exchange and share of ideas in the fields of energy use in buildings and data science. The event will have representation from industry and academia and will cover the common ground of these two important disciplines. With this, it is intended to facilitate an interdisciplinary arena in which the participants will be able to discuss their most recent findings, the recent innovations, and the trends that this field of study has shown in the last years..

DATALEB'18 is supported by Seneca Foundation, University of Murcia, Gemini Data Loggers (Tinytag), and technically sponsored by IBPSA World.


At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend the symposium to present the paper in order to include the paper in the conference proceedings.
