IBPSA-Canada's biennial conference, eSim, brings together professionals,
academics and students interested in building performance simulation
issues and applications. The 2010 conference is hosted by Manitoba
Hydro, in collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada. It
will be held in Winnipeg, Canada on May 19 and 20, 2010 (pre-conference
and post-conference workshops on May 18 and 21, 2010).


Conference Keynote Speakers Confirmed 


Professor Ian Beausoleil-Morrison of Carleton University and Thomas
Auer, Managing Director and Partner of Transsolar GmBH have been
confirmed as the Keynote Speakers of eSim 2010. Ian has a rich
experience of simulation tool development and use in Canada and
internationally, notably leading the successful IEA Annex 42 (Simulation
of Building-Integrated Fuel Cell and Other Cogeneration Systems); Thomas
has developed energy and building services concepts for projects around
the world noted for their innovative design and low energy use. Manitoba
Hydro Place is one such example of where Thomas's firm has utilized
simulation to design what is considered one of the most energy efficient
high rise buildings in North America. The conference organizers are
excited to have both these individuals as part of the conference as they
are both highly regarded within the industry.


Call for Software Demos


Software companies and individuals are invited to take part in special
software demo sessions during the conference. Much like technical
presentations, the software demo sessions will consist of presentations
in front of an audience. However, these presentations will not be
peer-reviewed and therefore not included in the conference proceedings -
although the submission of a technical paper on the software that meets
one of the conference themes is encouraged! To be eligible for a
presentation during the software demo sessions, the software must be a
commercial product or be freely available (on a web site for example).
Furthermore, the presenter must be a registered participant. Please note
that the scientific committee has the right to limit the number of
software tools being presented.


To submit, just click on the "Software Demo Submission" tab on 
www.esim.ca <http://www.esim.ca/> 


Paper Submission Deadline for Manuscripts Reminder - December 17th


For those individuals who have had their abstracts approved by the
Scientific Committee, the paper submission deadline for manuscripts of
December 17th is quickly approaching. Please be sure to submit your
papers on time.
