The 2018 Building Performance Analysis Conference and SimBuild, co-organized by ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA, will be held September 26-28, 2018 at the Hilton Chicago, Chicago, IL. It is the third co-organized conference between ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA.
The goal of this conference is to present the new techniques and workflows that will help researchers and practitioners make better decisions during the simulation and modeling process of an entire building life cycle.
The conference program will consist of Keynote Speakers, Invited Speakers, a Call for Papers, a Call for Presenters and the fourth ASHRAE LowDown Showdown. Special panels may be offered by industry leaders and organizations.
Announcing the Project StaSIO Competition - Project StaSiO (Standard Simulation Inputs and Outputs) was created through work completed by the IBPSA Architectural Simulations Subcommittee. It is an online website populated with crowd-sourced simulation graphics and case studies organized around the ASHRAE 209 framework. The objective of this competition is to catalyze crowd-sourced submissions to Project StaSIO through execution of an online competition for Project StaSIO’s two forms of submissions: 1) Graphic Outputs and 2) Case Studies. The competition would be open to organizations or individuals who want to submit through either of the paths.
