Oct. 2, 2013: ASHRAE Seeks Presenters, Posters for High Performance Buildings Conference

Event to Provide a Comprehensive Overview of High Performance Building Design

ATLANTA — Presenters and posters are being sought for ASHRAE’s High Performance Buildings Conference, which is scheduled for April 7-8, 2014, at Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco.

The conference will have a mix of invited speakers along with the call for presenters. In addition, there will be a poster session on “Measured Building Performance” and “Modeled Building Performance.”

“We would like to see a balance of presentations showing innovation, proven methods for improving building operation resulting in deep energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality, measured performance and HPB case studies demonstrating new technologies,” said Kent Peterson, conference chair. “We are seeking posters of designed or built buildings that balance high performance building attributes of energy efficiency, water savings, and indoor environmental quality.”

The conference topics provide a comprehensive overview of high performance building design with a focus on strategies in several areas, Peterson said. New subject areas include water efficiency, building occupant behavior, new building technologies, and indoor environmental quality. In addition, there is increased emphasis on lighting/daylighting and the building envelope.

Some of the other topics to be covered by presentations and posters include:

• Building Performance Modeling

• Building Performance Measurement

• Case Studies and Lesson Learned

• Indoor Environmental Quality Strategies

• Low Energy Techniques

• Market Value (Return on Investment)

• Operating for High Performance

Abstracts for presentations are due Oct. 25, 2013, while poster PDFs are due Feb. 21, 2014. For more information, visit www.hpbmagazine.org/hpb2014.
