A chance to present at the 2018 ASHRAE meeting in Chicago

CIBSE President Peter Wong is seeking CIBSE members to potentially join him to present at the ASHRAE Chicago meeting from January 20th - 24th 2018 as part of the CIBSE ASHRAE liaison sponsored session.  

It is a speculative bid so it will not be confirmed finally until September (ie it will be subject to acceptance by the ASHRAE conference committee).

The seminar will be based around Peter Wong’s vision and associated presidential theme. The draft title for the seminar is “The art of healthy and productive buildings”. We are looking for presentations that inform and excite the audience by showing how, by applying sound ‘building services’ engineering thought and practice, healthy and productive buildings can be designed and/or built and/or commissioned and/or operated and/or evaluated.
You are invited to submit a brief proposal (5-10 bulleted points) for a presentation that would address an aspect of that, reasonably broad, subject. This would be an 18 minute Powerpoint slide presentation that does not require a written paper. The presentation must to be based on up-to-date technology/techniques and be founded on good evidence (and not conjecture). If chosen you would join Peter Wong as a presenter at the Chicago meeting. Please note that speakers pay a reduced meeting registration rate but receive no deferment of expenses from CIBSE or ASHRAE (ie there are no expenses paid by CIBSE or ASHRAE).
Please let Tim Dwyer, know by Wednesday 31st May 2017 if you would like to be considered with an outline of the presentation (5-10 bulleted points) - together with your abbreviated CV.
If you were selected to be part of the bid you would subsequently need to produce by the 1st July 2017:

  • A final agreed title for the presentation;
  • Abstract for the presentation (Approx 100-200 words);
  • 4 SIMPLE learning objectives for the presentation;
  • 4 SIMPLE SHORT Questions PLUS Answers that can be answered directly from your presentation (you will receive more guidance on this if needed).

A Powerpoint presentation would need to be completed (to meet ASHRAE’s presentation requirements) by mid December 2017.
