SimBuild 2006

IBPSA-USA will hold its second national conference, August 2-4, 2006 on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  The format will be similar to the successful SimBuild 2004 held at the University of Colorado, Boulder.  Technical sessions over two days will feature presentations on a wide range of topics related to the simulation of HVAC equipment, airflow in buildings, energy usage, and the visual and acoustic environment in buildings, as well as demonstrations of simulation software and of hardware and software needed to emulate or measure the performance of buildings.   Friday will be a practitioner day, offering case studies, hands-on software demonstrations and other presentations aimed at giving practicing architects and engineers the information they need to be more informed collaborators with simulation experts.  The practitioner day will be coordinated with local US Green Building Council chapters and affiliates.  Training workshops by various software vendors are being scheduled for the Monday and Tuesday preceding the conference - further details will be announced later. 

Conference housing will be offered on campus in dormitories and in nearby hotels.  Single- and double-occupancy dormitory rooms will range in price from about $65 to $110 per night.

The meeting is open to all, world-wide.  Boston is a convenient destination for travelers from major cities in the U.S. and in many other countries.  It is a historic and compact city, easily explored on foot and via public transportation.  Conference participants may want to stay longer and explore New England's mountains and Atlantic coast, from Maine to Connecticut.  MIT has a growing number of architecturally significant buildings that participants can visit, including recent work by Frank Gehry, Steven Holl, and Kevin Roche, and earlier projects by I.M. Pei, Eero Saarinen, and Finnish master Alvar Aalto.   Harvard University and Harvard Square are a short distance away.
