ATLANTA — The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), along with HVACR, architecture, interior design, and building construction industry colleagues from around the world, will host the seventh International HVAC Cold Climate Conference, Nov. 12-14, 2012, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Cold Climate HVAC 2012 will provide key elements of a strategy by which scientists, designers, engineers, manufacturers, and other decision-makers in cold-climate regions can achieve good indoor environmental quality (IEQ), with a minimum use of resources and energy.

The range of topics includes energy and sustainability in arctic environments; building technology for people in the arctic; indoor environment and health; challenges for remote areas; cold-climate building envelopes and moisture management; HVAC system operation and maintenance; and cold-climate standards, codes, regulations, and requirements.

The planning committee seeks papers featuring innovations in cold-climate HVAC design. This includes new technologies and applications; improved methodologies, improvements to computational models or other design tools; novel methods of management, organization or quality assurance; and novel avenues of research or revised conceptual frameworks for designers.

Paper abstracts that are submitted are to be no longer than 350 words, summarizing the objectives, approach, results, and conclusions of the proposed paper, and five to seven keywords by Dec. 1, 2011. Upon acceptance, papers will be due April 1, 2012.
