Call for Posters


We are now welcoming submissions for poster presentations for the conference and particularly invite PhD students to present material which may not necessarily have the scope for a full paper as the research is at an early stage, and innovation companies with practice related /applied research / material.

Abstracts will be reviewed and those accepted for inclusion in the conference will participate in the dedicated poster session.  The extended abstract will be included in the conference proceedings.

Submission Instructions

You are encouraged to submit extended abstracts on the main conference themes:

  • 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

Abstracts should be no more than 2 pages in length (including figures and diagrams) and be submitted using the Word or LaTeX templates. 

The abstract must cover:

(1) Objectives of your poster

(2) Methods & Key Outcomes

(3) Novelty

All abstracts should be submitted online via ConfTool using the templates provided above.
