About the Conference

Building Simulation and Optimization (BSO) conference provides a forum for the exchange of knowledge on the development and application of building performance simulation to optimum design and operation of buildings.

The main conference themes are:

  • New building performance simulation methods  (e.g., energy, comfort, daylighting, airflow, air quality)
  • New approaches for optimizing design and operation
  • New decision support methods for real world applications (e.g., design, compliance, commissioning, predictive control, retrofit)
  • Advances in model calibration, uncertainty analysis, and validation methods
  • Occupant behaviour modelling
  • Urban- and district-scale simulation of energy and environment
  • Innovative applications of simulation in practice

The conference took place on Tuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 September with the conference dinner on Tuesday evening.  A walking tour of Cambridge took place on Monday afternoon, which all conference participants were welcome to join.
