Buildings XIII International Conference
Thermal Performance of the Exterior Envelopes of Whole Buildings XIII International Conference
The thirteenth (13) international conference on Thermal Performance of the Exterior Envelopes of Whole Buildings XIII will be held December 5–8, 2016. This conference will present two tracks:
PRINCIPLES – Devoted to Research
PRACTICES – Focusing on Practical Applications and Case Studies
You are invited to submit an abstract for presentation in either the Principles (research) or Practices (practical applications) track. Special topic Workshops will be presented before or after the conference. A written paper will be required for all presentations.
Papers should focus on the development of High Impact Technologies and processes to be life cycle cost effective, and reduce energy use and environmental consequences. Papers should demonstrate how their topics, on the Thermal Performance of the Exterior Envelope of Whole Buildings, will lead to high performance buildings. Papers on case studies need to be unique and new. Papers in the Practices Track should provide technologies ready for implementation; those in the Principles Track shall show the promise of short to mid-term.
