The 7th International Building Physics Conference (IBPC 2018): “Healthy, Intelligent, and Resilient Buildings and Urban Environments”, aims to advance the collective understanding of the nature and behaviour of the cyber-physical systems in these different scales, how they interact, and what can be done to optimise their design and operation for healthy, intelligent and resilient buildings and urban environments.
Contributions are invited, but not limited to, the following topics:
Building Materials, Assemblies, and Enclosure Systems

The better energy-efficient building components of today have one major flaw: The loss of efficiency through improper usage during the building process can be dramatic.
The EU-funded ACCEPT project (Assistant for Quality Check during Construction Execution Processes for Energy-efficienT buildings), will ensure the proper usage of the components during the building process with the help of Smart Glasses.

The 4th edition of the OPERE newsletter focuses on the analysis of data from the system of management, as well as the actions of system optimisation.
The newsletter also reflects the activities developed by the researchers for the elaboration of prediction models of thermal dynamics in buildings based on artificial intelligence techniques.

The scientific accompanying research team "EnergieWendeBauen" of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy has published a new combined monitoring guideline for the field energy in buildings and city quarters, specifically for the research initiatives EnOB and EnEff:Stadt. The monitoring guideline contains besides minimum requirements for measurements in demonstration buildings and quarters within EnOB and EnEff:Stadt also information on support tools, that facilitate the administration and analysis of monitoring data.

Die Studie beschäftigt sich damit, welche Einsparungen durch energieeffiziente Wohnhäuser in der Praxis tatsächlich erreichbar sind. Dafür wurden die Verbrauchskennwerte energetisch sanierter und neuer Ein- und Mehrfamilienhäuser ausgewertet. Die 121 untersuchten Effizienzhäuser umfassen 50 neue Ein- und Zweifamilienhäuser, 7 neue Mehrfamilienhäuser, 46 energetisch sanierte Ein- und Zweifamilienhäuser und 18 energetisch sanierte Mehrfamilienhäuser. Alle Häuser haben eine gedämmte Gebäudehülle und eine effiziente Anlagentechnik.

Monitoring protocol - a guide accompanying users of PERFORMER solution
The PERFORMER solution is a holistic approach to monitoring and subsequently improving the energy performance of existing buildings. By collecting real-time data and in-situ measurements from a building, it is possible to identify and correct deviations from the anticipated/ forecast energy performance. The PERFORMER solution essentially comprises two parts:

The new Sankt Franziskus elementary school in Halle went into use in February 2014. A scientific monitoring was initiated to evaluate the energy concept. The results show that the wood constructed school uses 90% less heating energy than comparable schools in Germany. The building envelope including box-type windows meets the passive house requirements. The school is heated by an air-heating system with district heating as energy source. The ventilation is connected to a ground-coupled heat exchanger and can be used to heat or to cool the building.
