ASHRAE announced a call for presentations for the 2021 Building Performance Analysis Conference to be held September 22-24 in Denver, Colorado. The theme for the conference is “Design and Operation for Resilient and Healthy Buildings”.
“The past year has brought forward new challenges for the design and operation of new and existing buildings, in particular challenges related to the health and well-being of occupants,” said John Bynum, conference chair. “Additionally, interest in embodied energy and operational emissions continues to grow across the industry due to regulatory and other drivers. This conference will provide an opportunity for building professionals across disciplines to share and learn about these topics and many others as we continue to work towards a better built environment.”
Building performance analysis professionals and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for individual presentations between 20-30 minutes in length or 90 minute panel or seminar sessions. Proposals can cover a broad range of topics addressing the needs of the building performance analysis community. Creative and interactive presentation formats are strongly encouraged.
Presentation proposals will be accepted from February 8 through March 19, 2021. If accepted, presentations will be due August 6, 2021.
The 7th ASHRAE LowDown Showdown Building Modeling Competition will also be held in conjunction with this conference.
