Building Simulation Applications
1st IBPSA-Italy Conference

Time and Location
From January 30th to February 1st 2013 IBPSA-Italy organizes the 1st Conference on Building Simulation Applications at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano.
The Conference will be held in English.


Actual perspectives in building physics

• Summer thermal performance
• Refurbishment of existing buildings
• Building codes and regulations, simplified methodsversus detailed simulation
• Simulation tools and applications for sustainablebuilding design, resource requirement and life cycle assessment

Simulation of building performance

• Building physics, heat and mass transfer modelingadvancements
• Air flow simulation, natural and mechanical ventilation
• Plant and HVAC simulation, building control andoptimization
• Renewable energy resources, district heating and CHPgeneration
• Thermal comfort, lighting and acoustics

Simulation tools

• Building models sensitivity analysis
• Integration, interoperability web-based techniques,software development, open source initiatives
• Advances in teaching and education, eLearning

Target attendees

• Public and private researchers in the sector of buildingphysics
• Public agencies, public utilities and policy makers
• Private firms: components manufacturers, managementcompanies, utilities, softwarehouses
• Professionals: building designers (architects, engineers,etc.)

Abstract and paper submission

Please register at the following link to access the upload of your abstract and to check the updates in the revision process. In order to simplify the process, the submitting author should register and appear in the author list as “author” while the other possible authors should be indicated as “coauthor”. Only the submitting author is allowed to access the revision process and will receive the e-mail warnings about the different steps. The indication of a presenting person is not mandatory and will be required only for the final submission.Please specify if the paper is intended for the standard session or for the PhD students session.
