For its 2017 Building Performance Analysis Conference, to be held Sept. 27-29 in Atlanta, ASHRAE is seeking individuals to give presentations and teams to take part in the LowDown Showdown modeling competition.
“This conference engages the design aspect of modeling and simulation,” Dennis Knight, conference chair, said. “Our goal is to serve practitioners with the most up-to-date best practices, work flows, and processes required to plan, design, construct, and operate high-performing, low-energy-consuming, environmentally responsive and responsible, safe, secure, and healthy buildings for human occupancy.”
A call for presenters is open for presentations addressing topics of interest to practitioners, modelers, and designers.
In the ASHRAE LowDown Showdown modeling competition, participants will model an existing building that includes both office space and climate-controlled archival-warehouse space.
