Technical Symposium 2024 Call for Papers

31 Jul 23

The CIBSE Technical Symposium 2024, titled Fit for 2050- Delivering Buildings and defining performance for a net zero built environment, is seeking abstracts for papers and presentations to be presented at the event in Cardiff in April 2024.

The focus of the 2024 Symposium is on redefining building performance so that buildings are fit for the future, in the context of the digital revolution, increased climate change impacts, a new focus on health and wellbeing, and the renewed imperative for building safety.

Papers are invited which consider:

  • Redefining building performance in the light of social, environmental and digital change
  • How digital technologies and modern methods of construction across the built environment enable net zero transformation and climate resilience
  • Rethinking health and well-being design standards, post-pandemic and in a changing climate, and what is the role of occupants in the effective operation of buildings
  • Meeting net zero carbon standards to address energy security and occupant safety.

The Technical Symposium will feature a range of peer-reviewed papers and presentations outlining the latest developments in practice, technology and policy and showcase the latest guidance for building services engineers. It will provide practitioners with up-to-date information about the latest developments in meeting net zero carbon imperatives and digital innovations as well as developing knowledge and practice in healthy buildings.

We invite short abstracts of proposals for research papers, posters, technical reviews, case studies and opinion presentations that are based on recent or current project work, research or application, as well as those that examine actual or potential impacts of our work on the built environment.

Submissions must be received by Monday 11 September 2023.
