The theme of the conference is "BIM, BEM and SIM – Integrated Building Design and Modeling."
ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA are convening this conference to improve the industry’s ability to accurately model building performance. The conference merges the IBPSA-USA SimBuild and ASHRAE Energy Modeling Conferences. The focus is on making better decisions through the application of simulation and modeling over the entire building life cycle from the earliest concept through operation and maintenance.
The theme of the conference is “BIM, BEM and SIM – Integrated Building Design and Modeling.” The conference brings together the building energy analysis and performance simulation community. Modelers, software developers, owners, and researchers will address the practices of energy modeling and building performance simulation using existing simulation tools, software development, and future simulation research and applications.
The papers and presentations are organized around five tracks:
- State of the Art BIM
- Design Firms
- BIM in the Cloud
- Codes and Rating Systems
- Life Cycle Cost Analysis
