ASHRAE 2013 Annual Conference, June 22-26, Denver, Colorado

ATLANTA – ASHRAE is accepting presentation submissions for its 2013 Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado, June 22-26.

The conference currently seeks seminar and forum proposals on current research worldwide; core HVAC&R applications and systems; and, featured for this conference, Integrated Project Design, Energy Modeling, and Building Efficiency Performance. The steering committee has already accepted 163 conference paper abstracts and some 60 technical papers. The conference headquarters hotel is Denver Sheraton and the technical program takes place at the hotel.

The Research Summit track seeks presentations that report on all aspects pertaining to HVAC&R and attempts to bring together researchers to present and discuss the latest research. The Research Summit track has an emphasis on the industry's movement toward a clean energy economy. Also, highlights on ongoing ASHRAE funded research will be presented.

The Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) track addresses the evolving method of managing a design project from conceptual design through to the operation and maintenance phase, based on the concept of shared risk/ shared profit and teamwork. This track will focus on success and lessons learned with IPD, as well as individual roles in IPD collaboration.

The Building Energy Modeling vs. Measurement & Verification track seeks to discuss the accuracy of building energy modeling programs compared to utility usage in the actual building after one to two years of occupancy. It also investigates trends in building modeling, and/or the realities of construction and O&M, such as systemic construction issues that lead to long term non-performance and training staff to operate a building as it was designed to perform.

The Mile-High Efficiency & Equipment Track highlights new breakthroughs in equipment and building systems that contribute to a building's overall high-efficiency performance.

Renewable & Alternative Energy Sources looks past wind, hydroelectric, and solar power to find even more alternative and/or renewable energy sources that are being utilized in HVAC design to work toward net-zero and high-efficiency buildings.

As with past ASHRAE conferences, the Denver Conference seeks to address core HVAC&R Systems and Equipment as well as
