[31 May 2020 - COVID-19 update for Registrants]. On behalf of ASHRAE and AIVC, we wish to inform you that a decision was made to postpone the IAQ 2020 Conference. It will be rescheduled in 2021 as a face-to-face conference in Athens, Greece.  At this time, the 31 May deadline for submitting papers is suspended.

The decision to postpone the conference was made in large part by the results of the survey completed by some 170 authors


The conference "IAQ 2020: Indoor Environmental Quality Performance Approaches Transitioning from IAQ to IEQ",  organized by ASHRAE and AIVC will take place September 14-16, 2020 in Athens, Greece. The conference will also be the 9th TightVent and 7th venticool conference.


Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has been the core of ASHRAE’S IAQ series of conferences for the past 30 years. This conference will expand from Indoor Air Quality to Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ).


IEQ includes air quality, thermal comfort, acoustics, and illumination and their interactions.


The particular focus of this conference is on performance approaches including the metrics, systems, sensors and norms necessary to implement them.


Conference topics include: 


- Health and Well-being: Appropriate technical and operational definitions


- Performance Metrics: For all aspects of IEQ


- Interactions: Interactions between IEQ parameters


- Occupant Behavior: How behavior impacts IEQ and how IEQ impacts behavior - psychological dimensions of IEQ


- Smart Sensors and Big Data: Sensor properties, data management, cybersecurity, applications


- Smart Controls: Equipment properties, commissioning, equivalence


- Resilience and IEQ: Responding to climate change and disasters


- Ventilation: Mechanical, passive, natural and hybrid systems


- Air Tightness: Trends, methods and impacts


- Thermal Comfort: Dynamic approaches, health impacts and trends


- Policy and Standards: Trends, impacts, implications


- Call for Abstracts & Papers
