ASHRAE has announced a call for papers for its 2017 Winter Conference in Las Vegas, Nev., Jan. 28-Feb. 1, 2017.
The conference seeks papers that address the new conference tracks and other prevailing issues in the industry.
“Today’s HVAC&R profession is facing challenges unlike those from the past,” said Leon Shapiro, conference chair. “The rapidity with which technology advances the modeling, design, equipment, systems, construction and operation of the buildings we deal with, along with the speed with which climate change is significantly altering the conditions around which we design, are creating problems for today’s ASHRAE members. The conference seeks to address those problems.”
The conference seeks papers on new tracks that address the changes in technology:
In addition, the conference seeks papers on Fundamentals and Applications, HVAC&R Systems and Equipment, Commercial and Industrial IAQ and Building Operation and Performance: Meeting the Modeling Expectations.
“The industry’s goal is to design, build and operate buildings today that are efficient and sustainable, and that are intended to remain efficient and sustainable into the future,” Shapiro said. “How do you accomplish that if tomorrow promises to be notably different than today? No sensible design decisions can be made without taking into account not only the world as it has been or is, but also the world as it will be. The 2017 ASHRAE Winter Conference attempts to bridge this design challenge through the tracks and papers and programs accepted for the program.”
ASHRAE offers two types of paper submissions:
