Deadline approaching for ASHRAE 2014 Winter Conference paper submissions

February 21, 2013 - With its 2014 Winter Conference approaching, ASHRAE is seeking papers under the building-oriented theme—in particular: building information systems; international design; HVAC&R applications and systems; and tall building performance.

The Tall Buildings: Performance Meets Policy track focuses on the performance of tall buildings or political challenges and opportunities in the design, development and operation of tall and super-tall buildings. Papers are sought on the measured and measurable use of utilities, envelope (infiltration and exfiltration), building pressure, waste handling, elevators, carbon and adaptive reuse.

Building performance is addressed in three other tracks:
• The Building Information Systems track investigates how building control technologies are integrated and used for building management, operation and efficiency.  
• The Hydronic System Design track addresses hydronic system design; and components, research and case studies for their application, including unintended consequences.  
• The Building Performance and Commissioning track seeks case studies in achieving high efficiency buildings.

As with past ASHRAE conferences, the New York Conference is also looking for papers addressing the core HVAC&R systems, equipment, fundamentals and application advances and practices.

Interested in answering the Call for Papers? You can choose between two types of paper submissions:
• Conference paper abstracts due March 15, 2013. Upon acceptance, papers will be due July 2, 2013. These “final” papers undergo a single-blind review, are submitted as a PDF and have an eight single-spaced page maximum length.
• Full technical papers due April 19, 2013. Papers submitted for review must be both technically accurate and clearly written. These papers undergo a double-blind review and can be a maximum of 30 double-spaced pages.
