Recognising that system and plant performance is a global issue this joint CIBSE and ASHRAE symposium will give a platform to the latest practice and research from around the world in active and passive building systems that will shape an effective future for the built environment with minimum resource impact.

The fourth annual Technical Symposium will take place on 3rd-4th April 2014 in Dublin and aims to encourage the participation of young and experienced researchers and industry practitioners to share experiences and develop networks.

This invitation (now closed) was for papers concerning research and development that may address …

  • Enhanced building engineering solutions through modelling and prediction
  • Innovation in passive and active building systems
  • Design and operation of future cities
  • Improving the operation of the built environment
  • Maintaining and improving legacy building systems
  • The development and impact of benchmarks, standards and regulatory measures
  • Communication, skills and workforce development

This list is not exhaustive but provides the intended context of the Technical Symposium that will focus on aspects that are of interest to CIBSE and ASHRAE members. Material is welcomed based on recent or current research and application as well as the actual or potential impact of that research on the built environment.

Case Studies:

For the first time this year there are opportunities for the presentation of relevant case studies supported by keynotes (as opposed to a formal paper). Presenters of case studies will produce a two-sheet summary to accompany the oral presentation. These case studies will be reviewed but not formally refereed.

All papers, poster and case studies will be peer reviewed and published electronically through CIBSE. Selected papers may be developed for publication in BSERT.

Key dates:
