ASHRAE Announces 2013-14 Conference
Mark your calendars now because ASHRAE’s conference schedule
for 2013-2014 is widespread in both dates and global reach.
ASHRAE conferences present the latest developments in the
industry and fundamental tried and true practices. Topics
range from high performance buildings to buildings that have
combustion with low-grade fuels.
Oct. 15-18, ASHRAE IAQ 2013: Environmental
Health in Low Energy Buildings, Vancouver, British Columbia,
Jan. 18-22, ASHRAE Winter Conference; Jan.
20-23, AHR Expo, New York, New York
Feb. 24-26, First International Conference on Energy
and Indoor Environment for Hot Climates, Doha, Qatar
April 7-8, High Performance Buildings Conference, San
April 24-25, Efficient, High Performance Buildings
for Developing Economies, Manila, Philippines
June 28-July 2, ASHRAE Annual Conference, Seattle,
September 10-12, ASHRAE/IBPSA-USA Building Simulation
Conference, Atlanta, Ga.
The conferences feature peer-reviewed papers, presentations
with hands-on information presented in a non-commercial
format, Professional Development Hours and networking
ASHRAE IAQ 2013 in October 2013 reviews the state of
knowledge on the balance between environmental health and
energy efficiency in the pursuit of low energy buildings and
covers a range of topics: residential and commercial
buildings, new construction and retrofit, active and passive
approaches, design and operation.
What better city than New York for ASHRAE to host a Winter
Conference in January 2014 with a Technical Program focused
on buildings? The Conference has a building-oriented theme
with papers and presentations related to building
information systems; environmental health; international
design; HVAC&R applications and systems; and, of course,
tall building performance.

International Conference on Energy and Indoor Environment for
Hot Climates in February 2014 tackles energy and indoor
environmental quality issues in humid and arid hot climates,
providing a forum for discussion of the latest research and
Building upon its 2012 High Performance Buildings Conference and
2009 Net Zero Conference, the High Performance Buildings
Conference in April 2014 seeks to advance the industry’s efforts
to accomplish a true high-performance built environment. The
tracks include building performance modeling, envelope
strategies, lighting/daylighting strategies, indoor
environmental quality strategies, building occupant behavior,
market value, new building technologies and case studies and
The design, construction and operation of energy efficient, high
performance buildings in developing economies have been
identified by the building industry and policymakers as key
areas where technology, standards and investments are needed.
The Efficient, High Performance Buildings for Developing
Economies Conference in April 2014 will address a number of
themes on this topic.
The 2014 ASHRAE Annual Conference takes place in Seattle, Wash.,
June 2014. The Conference addresses broad topics in the
application of technology to practice, specific applications in
ground source heat pumps, operations and maintenance and indoor
environmental quality as well as new reports on research taking
Finally, ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA have created a new jointly
co-sponsored Building Simulation Conference taking place in
September 2014 that encompasses the ASHRAE Energy Modeling and
IBPSA-USA SimBuild Conferences. The conference is a first for
the industry and focuses on “BIM, BEM and SIM – Integrated
Building Design and Modeling,” addressing building information
modeling, building energy modeling and building simulation.
ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is a building technology society with
more than 50,000 members worldwide. The Society and its members
focus on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air
quality, refrigeration and sustainability. Through research,
standards writing, publishing, certification and continuing
education, ASHRAE shapes tomorrow’s built environment today.
