This is a reminder that the deadline for nominations for the IBPSA Awards is 14 March.
As previously announced, the Board of Directors of IBPSA is seeking nominations for Awards to be presented at Building Simulation 2015, in Hyderabad, India (7-9 December 2015).
IBPSA makes three awards for outstanding work in the building performance simulation field. These awards are made on a biennial basis at each Building Simulation Conference, providing there is a qualified candidate. In order to allow the awardees time to plan to attend, it is time to consider nominations for the up-coming conference in 2015. The three categories awarded are:
(1) IBPSA Distinguished Achievement Award
This award, formerly named the IBPSA Award for Distinguished Service to Building Simulation, recognizes an individual who has a distinguished record of contributions to the field of building performance simulation, over a long period. The award consists of a certificate and $500 (US). Awarded bi-annually.
(2) IBPSA Outstanding Young Contributor Award
This award recognizes an individual at the beginning of their career who has demonstrated potential for significant contributions to the field of building performance simulation. The award consists of a certificate and $500 (US). Awarded bi-annually.
(3) IBPSA Innovative Application Award
This award, formerly named the IBPSA Award for Distinguished Practice, recognizes an individual, group or firm, who has made a significant contribution to the effective application and/or advancement of building performance simulation in practice. The award may be given for a unique or noteworthy use of simulation in practice; development of simulation software or supporting software that has had a significant impact on industry practice; or other contribution that has advanced building performance simulation in practice. The award consists of a certificate and $US500. Awarded bi-annually.
Nominations for awards MUST be made by an independent third party.
Nominations for the Distinguished Achievement Award should include a brief CV which gives the history of involvement with building performance simulation, publications etc., and a summary of the nominee's specific contribution to the field of building performance simulation - e.g. in the development/ contribution to development of building performance simulation tools or in furthering knowledge in the field of application of building performance simulation, etc.
Nominations for the IBPSA Outstanding Young Contributor Award should include a brief CV, which gives a summary of the individual's contributions to the field of building performance simulation, their publications etc., and an assessment of the potential for future contributions arising from the individual.
Nominations for the Innovative Application Award should be accompanied by a summary of the individual's, group's or firm's contributions to the field of building performance simulation in practice and an assessment of the significance of these contributions.
Nominations must be submitted via email to the Chair of the Awards and Fellows Committee, Pieter de Wilde, at pieter.dewilde at plymouth.ac.uk<mailto:pieter.dewilde at plymouth.ac.uk>.
The deadline for nominations for the IBPSA Awards is 14 March 2015.
We would like as many nominations as possible, so please contact Pieter de Wilde to discuss a possible nomination if required.
Note that IBPSA also still has a call open for nominations for the Student Travel Awards. In order for the committee to process all nominations, we have phased the deadlines. Nominations for IBPSA Awards are due on 14 March 2015, and nominations for the Student Travel Awards on 15 April 2015. Details on the different categories can be found at www.ibpsa.org<http://www.ibpsa.org> through the 'awards' page.
