(Apologies for cross postings)

IBPSA-Canada's biennial conference, eSim, brings together professionals, academics and students interested in building performance simulation issues and applications. The 2010 conference is hosted by Manitoba Hydro, in collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada. It will be held in Winnipeg, Canada on May 19 and 20, 2010 (pre-conference and post-conference workshops on May 18 and 21, 2010). Please visit to register.

Conference Keynote Speakers

Professor Ian Beausoleil-Morrison of Carleton University and Thomas Auer, Managing Director and Partner of Transsolar GmBH have been confirmed as the Keynote Speakers of eSim 2010. Ian has a rich experience of simulation tool development and use in Canada and internationally, notably leading the successful IEA Annex 42 (Simulation of Building-Integrated Fuel Cell and Other Cogeneration Systems). Thomas has developed energy and building services concepts for projects around the world noted for their innovative design and low energy use. Manitoba Hydro Place is one such example of where Thomas' firm has utilized simulation to design what is considered one of the most energy efficient high rise buildings in North America. The conference organizers are excited to have both Ian and Thomas as part of the conference as they are both highly regarded within the industry.
