Inaugurated in 1979, the "Buildings Conference" takes place every three years allowing time to develop new research and technology applications and to document the findings. Attendance is international and draws heavily on the advanced technical knowledge of all our global experts.
The "Buildings Conference" presents a great opportunity for product manufacturers, research groups, technical advisors, builders, designers and other consultants to discuss their work achievements, interest and awareness of buildings issues, and provides solutions to some of our major building problems. Details on how to participate in this significant event are provided below.
Opening remarks and presentations
Papers documenting research typically involving experimental data and computer simulations.
Papers covering more practical topics and includes whole building case studies.
The conference agenda will also include workshops, where relevant topics and concerns of building envelope technologies and research will be discussed. The workshops will either be presented as full day or half day sessions, and will mainly run in parallel on Sunday December 4th.
