You are invited to the Symposium on Occupancy & Plug Loads in Building
Simulation, organized by IBPSA (International Building Performance
Simulation Association) -USA Boston Chapter. This event will focus on two
of the more challenging issues common to all energy models: how to
accurately capture occupancy and plug load intensities and diversities. The
evening will include presentations from both the research and practice
arenas as well as an open discussion on current best practices. Speakers
include: Holly Samuelson of Harvard Graduate School of Design, Bing Dong of
the United Technology Research Center, Rhys Goldstein of Autodesk, and Eric
