ASHRAE Seeks Abstracts for IAQ 2013

The Environmental Health in Low-Energy Buildings conference will take place in October 2013 in Vancouver, Canada.

ASHRAE announced a call for abstracts for IAQ 2013, Environmental Health in Low-Energy Buildings, a conference about indoor air quality, thermal comfort, source control, ventilation, and environmental health concerns associated with low-energy buildings’ design, construction, remodeling, and operation.

The conference will take place Oct. 15-18, 2013, in Vancouver, Canada, is co-organized by ISIAQ, and is the 17th in the ASHRAE IAQ conference series.

"Besides addressing thermal comfort and other IEQ issues, buildings and other enclosed spaces are increasingly challenged to provide a healthy environment while focused on minimizing energy use intensity," said Steve Emmerich, the conference co-chair. "The complex relationship between indoor and outdoor environmental conditions, coupled with the impacts of climate change, requires a paradigm shift towards creating buildings that are not only comfortable but also healthy for the occupants while minimizing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions," Co-Chair Hal Levin added.

Levin said the current focus on buildings' energy efficiency often results in insufficient consideration of the environmental health impacts it imposes.
