ASHRAE Offers More Technical Presentations

ATLANTA - The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) announced it will offer more technical sessions at its 2010 Annual Conference, to be held June 26-30 in Albuquerque, N.M. Guidance on how to improve building systems - from moisture issues to ventilation - including high-efficiency HVACR systems and ventilation systems, will be an important focus of the technical program.

“The program is strong in presentations that are market-based, addressing existing technology, systems, and equipment, giving attendees more practical, hands-on knowledge that they can use daily in their professions,” said Kirk Mescher, conference program chair. “The conference presents more paper-related sessions, a result of integrating a shorter, conference paper into the program.”

The technical program starts Sunday, June 27, at the Albuquerque Convention Center. The program features 10 technical paper sessions (with 29 papers presented), 16 conference paper sessions (40 papers presented), 61 seminars, 10 forums, and one technical plenary session, for a total of 98 sessions and 69 meeting papers. A complete listing of the technical program is available online at

The program is divided into seven tracks. The tracks with the most number of programs are: “High Efficiency HVACR Systems,” “Energy Facts vs. Simulation,” “Living with HVACR Systems,” “Energy Conservation vs. New Generation,” and “Ventilation Systems.” Particular sessions of interest in these tracks include: “Standard 90.1-2010: A First Look,” “Energy Efficient Operation and Design of Data Centers,” “Energy Efficiency Retrofit Measures for Government Buildings,” “HVAC System Noise Control for Classrooms,” and “Building Energy Simulation 101.”

Conference registrants will also be able to experience the technical program through the Virtual Conference, which will provide complete access to the state-of-the-art concepts and latest design techniques. Participants of the Virtual Conference can view and listen to programs on their own schedule, post comments and view presenters’ responses. To register or for more information, visit
