‘Moving to a New World of Building Systems Performance’
The abstracts received from around the world included a mix of academic and industry submissions, reflecting the aim of the symposium to facilitate information-sharing and networking across practitioners and those developing understanding and knowledge across the built environment.
The symposium will commission around 50 authors to present, all of whose papers will be peer reviewed.
CIBSE is seeking volunteers to act as referees so members or Fellows who are willing to review papers should contact CIBSE providing a few sentences by way of overview of their practical areas of technical expertise.
As well as helping to ensure that the papers presented are of a high standard, it will give referees a chance to find out about some of the developments that will be presented at the event. If you are interested in helping please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The symposium’s main theme “Moving to a New World of Building Systems Performance” will give a platform to the latest practice and research from around the world in active and passive building systems that will shape the future for the built environment while striving to minimise resource impact.
CIBSE President George Adams said: “The CIBSE ASHRAE Technical Symposium is an exciting two-day event which tackles a fascinating range of cutting-edge subjects. It is a unique opportunity for members and industry experts to share knowledge on, and debate, important issues in the built environment such as the adaptation of cities to the impact of population growth and climate change.”
ASHRAE President Bill Bahnfleth said: “ASHRAE is very pleased to collaborate in the continuation of this series of international technical symposia. I personally look forward to being in Dublin to participate in this forward- looking exchange on the future of building systems and the building industry itself. From modeling to cutting-edge systems for both new and existing buildings to workforce development, there is something for every built environment professional in this program.”
A joint enterprise with ASHRAE, the symposium is also supported by the Future Cities Catapult, a newly- established global centre of excellence on urban innovation.
