Call for Papers: The International Conference for Enhanced Building Operations (ICEBO)

Share this Post:
ICEBO invites you to submit an abstract for acceptance. The conference will be held 23 - 26 October 2012 in Manchester, England. The conference is hosted by the Centre for Construction Innovation, University of Salford and co-hosted by the Energy Systems Laboratory located at Texas A&M University.

The conference brings together an international group of leading practitioners, policy makers and researchers who routinely improve the health and comfort and minimize the energy consumption, operating costs, and environmental impacts of buildings. ICEBO 2012 is the leading forum for a timely exchange among individuals interested in the continuous improvement and maintenance of buildings, design, their energy usage and environmental impact.

The format of ICEBO is a series of technical and invited panel sessions, during which officials, building experts, and implementers make brief (12 -15 minutes) presentations, followed by a facilitated discussion. In order to solicit a wide range of input for ICEBO, we are issuing this open CALL FOR PRESENTATION TOPICS across the region, and internationally.

The proposed topic should be related to an organisation’s or an individual’s recent or current work in the TOPICS LISTED and it and should focus on concrete outcomes and achievements.

For each thematic area of interest, we are seeking a variety of presentations that cover the identification of specific barriers, how they were overcome, creative and innovative solutions, and tangible outcomes that can be scaled up and transferred to other regions.
