About the 2017 Symposium

CIBSE ASHRAE Technical Symposium 2017

5-6 April 2017, Loughborough University

'Delivering Resilient High Performance Buildings' 
Engineering and maintaining buildings and systems to provide resilient lifetime performance

The 2017 theme, Delivering Resilient High Performance Buildings, is inspired by this year’s ASHRAE and CIBSE presidential themes, respectively “Adapt Today to Shape Tomorrow” and “Improving Performance”. The aim of the 2017 Technical Symposium is to provide evidence of the successful adoption of resilience in the design and operation of buildings.

The seventh annual Technical Symposium looks to encourage the participation of both young and experienced industry practitioners, researchers and building users to share experiences and develop networks.

The Technical Symposium benefits from the keen support and learned input of both the volunteers on the organising committee and the scientific committee as well, of course, the presenters - without whom the Technical Symposium could not take place. 

The cost of attendance is being maintained as low as possible due to the valuable support from sponsors and volunteers. 

Further information on Loughborough University and the surrounding area can be found here.


Each year the Technical Sympoisum programme is created from reviewed papers and case studies that have been submitted from a broad spectrum of professional and academic practioners. View the 2016 programme.

Selected papers may be chosen by the Symposium committee for development and publication in the CIBSE technical journal BSERT. 

Submission deadline: 12 September 2016
