This conference will set out, debate and address the challenges that we, the Building Simulation and Optimization community, are currently facing. Understanding and modelling the performance of built environment has never been more critical as we transform to a resource efficient and zero carbon future. Topics to be explored include

Urban building energy modelling

Building Energy flexibility

Design & Retrofit optimization

Data-driven modelling

Occupant behaviour modelling

Shading & Overheating Analysis

Uncertainty Quantification & Analysis

Experimental Performance Characterisation

Building Energy Systems Modelling & Simulation

Advanced Modelling Techniques

Parametric Design

Conference Registration

The conference is still open for registration. The fee for the virtual conference is a flat rate of £50 per participant. With registration, participants will have access to the conference proceedings and access to paper presentations.
