The annual Technical Symposium, now in its fourth year, encourages the participation of both researchers and industry practitioners at all stages in their career to share experiences and develop networks. It will explore both active and passive building systems that will shape an effective future for the built environment and maximise energy efficiency.
Professor Tim Dwyer, who has helped organise the Symposium content, says: "The Symposium will consider a range of topics that underpin the engineering assessment, design and operation of systems that integrate with the aim of delivering future cities that not only provide inhabitants with acceptable and maintainable conditions but strive to mitigate their environmental impact.
"We have seen part of this challenge brought into sharp focus over the past 12 months with continued urban density growth in fast developing nations and incidents such as air quality issues in China, political and consumer reactions to rising energy costs in the UK, and the resilience of buildings in the freezing weather conditions recently experienced in North America.”
Over 60 papers, posters and case studies will be presented in sessions covering:
The event expands CIBSE President, George Adams’s Presidential address. In this address he commented that engineers working in the built environment had an urgent responsibility to help reduce energy consumption and provide for adaptation of buildings and cities to respond to the challenges of climate change whilst accommodating the needs of rapidly growing populations.
