ASHRAE has announced a call for papers for its 2018 Winter Conference in Chicago, IL, January 20-24 at the Palmer House Hilton.
This conference includes tracks on what ASHRAE is most known for – standards, fundamentals and applications, systems and equipment, tracks on industry trends in resiliency and modeling throughout a building’s life cycle, and tracks addressing specific disciplines, such as transportation air conditioning, tall buildings and heat exchange equipment.
“Engineers and designers continue to advance designs to reduce the ecological impact of our built environment on the world around us. It has practically become second nature.” Michael Collarin, chair of the 2018 ASHRAE Winter Conference, said. “However, and seemingly more so in recent years, the industry has needed to take steps to mitigate the impact of the world around us on our built environment. This is especially the case in our transportation, government, and mission critical arenas, where the loss of critical infrastructure can have severe consequences, including the loss of life. The tracks and programs for the ASHRAE Winter Conference will focus on resources to design, build, control, commission and operate facilities and infrastructure that need to not only be efficient, but resilient.”
The “Earth, Wind & Fire” track aims to help owners and design teams identify and plan for natural elements and other possible disasters that would otherwise be crippling. Papers that evaluate various systems (including HVAC, building envelope, structural, filtration, and on-site power), design strategies, construction measures, and building operation are sought. Papers addressing the worldwide…
